4(b). Since the index is a price-weighted average, the higher priced stocks carry more weight. But when a split occurs, the new divisor ensures that the new value for the series is the same as it would have been without the split. Hence, the main effect of a split is just a repositioning of the relative weight that a particular stock carries in determining the index. For example, a 10% price change for company B would carry more weight in determining the percent change in the index in Day 3 after the reverse split that increased its price, than its weight on Day 2.

4(c). Student Exercise

5(a). Base = ($12 x 500) + ($23 x 350) + ($52 x 250) = $6,000 + $8,050 + $13,000 = $27,050

Day 1 = ($12 x 500) + ($23 x 350) + ($52 x 250) = $6,000 + $8,050 + $13,000 = $27,050

Index1 = ($27,050/$27,050) x 10 = 10

Day 2 = ($10 x 500) + ($22 x 350) + ($55 x 250) =
