To me giving bonus has make it difficult for me to compare the earning per share over financial years..
I understand what you re saying, but atimes after marking down a stock for bonus and dividend, it goes back to its price range b4 the bonus, and probably it might not have passed that same price range if there was no bonus. So in this case however is holding the stock has gained.
