- Stock pricing with cross ownership 1 answer
Given two companies, total assets of $100 million each.
Company 'A' owns \$50M of company 'B'.
Company 'B' owns \$50M of company 'A'.
If you look at the value of both companies do you get \$200M or \$100M in value?
Is there any effect of this in the stock market where there is lots of circular ownership?
