As the number of outstanding shares double without any change in total assets or total stockholders’ equity, the market price of the stock should immediately drop to about half of the current market value. The current market value is \$50 and so it should change to approximately \$25 after the split.

c A stock split does not have any effect on the total stockholders’ equity as the total value still remains the same.
