These were the stocks with the highest share price in India but the obvious question that would come to your mind is why is the stock price so high ?
The primary reason for this is that the quantity of outstanding shares in the market is low. Market capitalisation of any company is equal to the price of a single share multiplied by the number of shares outstanding in the market. So if you have two companies with similar market capitalisation the company with lower number of outstanding shares in the market will have a higher stock price and similarly the other way round.
The number of outstanding shares in the market increases when companies issue more shares via rights issue, stock split or bonus issue. This way the number of shares in the market increases and the share price decreases. The stocks with such high price have a lesser or no frequency of issuing bonus shares or stock split.
Meanwhile, the most expensive share in world is Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire Hathaway share price currently is 300,000 USD which is around 1.91 crore INR
