I've been following Tesla for a bit and as of today it is at about 120 dollars a share. This isn't exceedingly high in general for the stock market. But it IS high for its industry. Ford is at about 17 and General Motors is at about 37 and both have been there for a while while Tesla has tripled over the past 3-4 months and may or may not continue to grow.
According to this question's accepted answer splitting is a bit more rare in recent times but the example is also for large tech companies like Google and Apple where the industry is consistently in the hundreds.
So I am just curious if stocks in Tesla's position of being relatively high within their industry historically split in order to drop back down to the industry 'standard' or if it has little to no bearing at all?
