After Citigroup Stock Split, Will Large Investors Buy?

Citigroup's 1-for-10 reverse stock split took effect today, decreasing the company's shares outstanding to about 2.9 billion, and boosting its share price to around $45.

Prior to the financial crisis, in December 2006, Citigroup shares reached an all-time high level of $57. By March 5, 2009, Citi shares fell below $1, trading as low as $0.97.

Since January 2009, the stock has remained in the single digits, trading below $6 until today.

Following Citi's reverse split, will large investors such as pension funds and mutual funds, which are usually barred from owning stocks under $5, reach for the carrot?

Here is a look at some of the stock splits in the past year and reverse stock splits since December 2000, along with their performance.
