Can anyone give some opinions in regard to a small time investor buying into a company with a large number of shares on issue and then the company at a later date goes for a capital restructure of say 1 for 10.
I understand the concept of trying to create shareholder value but as a small holder say going from 30,000 to 300 shares there would have to be a dramatic increase in value to be of any real benefit.
1. Should a small investor stay away from these potential situations and is there any way of predicting what companies may go down this road?
2. What is the easiest way of finding out how many shares and options a company has issued?
