When I purchase stocks eg 10 xyz stock my broker purchase it in two splits i.e 8 & 2 why?

It’s to create a match (demand and supply). If the complete lot that you applied is not available for the transaction at the moment, then they might split it. > @jasokan said:

Number of days in working capital …why it is negative for some stocks and what it means ???

I think you are referring to ‘Days working capital’ here. It is the ratio of working capital to sales. The formula is:

Days Working Capital = (Average Working Capital x 365)/Annual Sales Revenue

It is used to describe how many days it takes for a company to convert its working capital into revenue. The company with the higher ratio is generally the more inefficient.

Further, different industries have different working capital standards. So, if you can give me the examples of the companies you are referring above, I can explain further,

I hope it helps. Cheers!
