Quick Reference

1 A share that has a high price relative to the average price of shares on the market. As investors tend to prefer to buy larger numbers of low-priced shares, heavy shares are often split, i.e. the par value is divided by two or four, which has the same effect on the market price.

2 A share with greater relative voting rights.
