One stock can be worth thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. One such store can buy houses, cars, and even yachts.

Investors are always attracted to expensive stocks and growing value- some focus on costly securities. Such high-priced stocks are considered safe and highly profitable in the market.

There are many strategies for working in the stock market. For example, someone buys stocks trading below their book value; another buys stocks with a high dividend yield; another buys stocks of growing companies that pay no dividends. Quite popular among investors is a method based on the absolute price of a stock. Some prefer stocks that are worth only a few cents. This method of earning adrenaline is comparable to gambling apps and casino games. Only it is possible to make as well as to lose much more. 

Others, on the contrary, focus on the most expensive securities on the market. Such stocks are thought to predominantly rise in price, although there is no convincing evidence that this theory is correct. So that's what we'll talk about today.

Lindt & Spruengli AG.

  • Share price: about $86,500.

Swiss chocolate and confectionery manufacturer Lindt & Spruengli is on our list. It is especially famous for its chocolate figures: Easter bunnies, Christmas reindeer and bears, Santa, and snowmen.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. - $296 900. 

  • The company is inextricably associated with the legendary investor Warren Buffett. The issuer belongs to the segment of insurers. However, it is a diversified investment holding company. A solar power and gas transportation firm are among the company's subsidiaries. The investment arm aggregates public assets in relatively high proportions. Some of Berkshire's best-known investments in public support for a long time are Coca-Cola and Wells Fargo.
  • Capitalization $500.18 billion. 
  • Segment: insurance, finance, railroads, etc.

As we can see, among the 10 companies represented, there are three giants in capitalization. These are popular and reliable companies, some of which are considered growth stories in new industries. Overall, it should be noted that high absolute stock prices correlate with the scale of the companies. Of the ten issuers, only two have capitalizations below $5 billion. In other words, that imaginary idea that expensive stocks predominantly rise in price is due to trivial coincidence and the particularity of a particular sample.

While what is essential is the capitalization of the company, which, when paired with other financial metrics, determines the relative value of the business, the absolute price of a single stock still makes certain adjustments to the investment case. Berkshire Hathaway stock is inaccessible to retail investors because of its high cost. It is not in demand among daytime speculators and high-frequency traders. A closed club with a high entry threshold. It can have a favorable effect on the stock price chart and investors' nerves.

But Berkshire Hathaway has a second type of stock (BRK-b), which costs about $200 and is also traded.
