Question

A price-weighted index consists of stocks A, B, and C which are priced at $50, $35, and $15 a share, respectively. The current index divisor is 2.75. What will the new index advisor be if stock A undergoes a 5-for-1 stock split?

A. 0.40

B. 0.65

C. 1.00

D. 1.65

Answer #1

Before stock Split

Stock | Price |

A | 50 |

B | 35 |

C | 15 |

Price weighted Index = Sum of the price of all the stocks/Divisor = (50+35+15)/2.75 = 36.3636363636364

After stock Split

Stock | Price |

A | 10 |

B | 35 |

C | 15 |

5-for-1 stock split means that the one stock of A is split into 5 stock. Therefore, the new stock price of A is:

New price of stock A = $50/5 = $10

The price-weighted Index will not change, only the divisor will change

Price Weighted Index = Sum of prices of the stock/New Divisor = 36.3636363636364

60/New Divisor = 36.3636363636364

New Divisor = 60/36.3636363636364 = 1.65

**Answer -> New Divisor = 1.65**

A price-weighted index consists of stocks A, B, and C which are
priced at $50, $35, and $15 a share, respectively. The current
index divisor is 2.75. What will the new index advisor be if stock
A undergoes a 5-for-1 stock split?

A price-weighted index consists of stocks A, B, and C which are
priced at $38, $24, and $26 a share, respectively. The current
index divisor is 2.7. What will the new index divisor be if stock B
undergoes a 3-for-1 stock split? (Round your final answer to four
decimal points.)

5. A price-weighted index has 3 stocks: A, B and C. Their price
at the start of the index was $35, $48 and $90.
What is the initial divisor if the index start with a value of
100?
By the end of the first year, the price of the 3 stocks is $40,
$52 and $83 respectively. How much has the index gone up?
If stock C has a 3-for-1 split, what would be the new index
value after one...

An index consists of three stocks (A, B, C). The prices of these
three stocks are $45, $126, and $64, respectively. If Stock B has a
3-for-1 stock split, what is the new index divisor?

Problem 5-1 Price-Weighted Divisor (LO4, CFA2)
Able, Baker, and Charlie are the only three stocks in an index.
The stocks sell for $38, $200, and $106, respectively. If Baker
undergoes a 3-for-2 stock split, what is the new divisor for the
price-weighted index? (Do not round intermediate
calculations. Round your answer to 5 decimal places.)

Assume that you construct a price weighted index of 30 stocks.
The sum of the prices of these stocks is $4000. The divisor for
this index is 30, and the value of this index is 100. Now assume
that one of the 30 stocks, with an average price of $400, has a
four-for-one stock split while the value of other stocks remains
unchanged.
a) If you make no adjustments to the index, what will be the new
value of the...

An index consists of 3 stocks: A, B and C. At date 0, the prices
per share for A, B and C are $13, $60, and $15, respectively. At
date 0, the number of shares outstanding for A, B, and C are 100,
120, and 3000 respectively. At date 1, the prices per share for A,
B and C are $12, $22, and $12, respectively. At date 1, the number
of shares outstanding for A, B, and C are 100,...

The price-weighted Dow Jones Industrial Average Index closed at
12,500 today and the divisor was 0.14. One of the 30 constituent
stocks had a 5-for-1 stock split right declining from $100 to $20
per share right after the market close (immediately after the index
value and divisor above were observed). What would the new divisor
have to be to keep the index value unchanged at
12,500?
