Consistent Compounding Stock to Consider Bonus Issue and Stock Split this Week

Consistent Compounding Stock to Consider Bonus Issue and Stock Split this Week

Bajaj Finserv share price was the top buzzing stock today.

How often do you see a Sensex company going up by 7% in an otherwise weak market?

Unless a company reported exceptional results (case in point IndusInd Bank) or it forayed into the evergreen electric vehicle or exploding drone market, it's highly unlikely for a large-cap stock to move up by 7-8%.

Today, Bajaj Finserv share price rallied 7% and touched a high of Rs 13,483.

This is after the company's board in an exchange filing notified that they would consider bonus issue and a stock split later this week on Thursday.

Bajaj Finserv Stock Split and Bonus Issue

Yesterday, the company informed that the board of directors would consider the proposal for a split of the company's equity shares on 28 July.

In a regulatory filing, Bajaj Finserv said the proposal will be taken for approval by the board of directors for sub-division of equity shares of the company of face value of Rs 5 each.

A stock split affects the existing shares of a company. When a company announces to split its shares, the number of outstanding shares increases while the price of each share decreases.

The intention behind the stock split is to increase liquidity in the capital market and also widen the shareholder base.

Apart from stock split, Bajaj Finserv will also consider the proposal of issue of fully-paid bonus shares to the shareholders.

Corporate action events like bonus issues and stock splits often bring changes to a company through the capital structure.

In case of a bonus, they might seem to be good thing, but they actually give investors nothing they didn't already have.

In substance, it's just a way of breaking up the same company into a higher number of shares and distributing these additional shares pro-rata to shareholders.

In addition to bonus and split, Bajaj Finserv will announce its Q1 results on the same day.

According to data available on the BSE, Bajaj Finserv has never declared bonus shares or a stock split.

Thursday will be action packed for Bajaj Finserv as it has three big announcements to make.
