Red face Do you own Apple stock? check your accounts!!!!


I checked this morning and thought it was a typo

Apple’s Share Price Is No Mistake, Reflects 7-for-1 Stock Split

AppleAAPL -1.93% closed Friday at $645.57. It will open Monday around $92.

Nothing’s changed about the business, and Apple remains the world’s most valuable company by market capitalization. But Monday will the first day Apple trades after its seven-for-one stock split.

Because it doesn't matter. Stock split doesn't matter to current investors at all. Nothing happened. Nothing to get excited about. It's nothing.

So the $700 dollar stock share you have is still worth $700, but now you have 7 $100 shares. People who couldn't afford $700 a share will by able to buy 3 shares now. So that $100 stock share is now worth $200.

Yep. Nothing.

What I received from my broker.

On April 23, 2014, Apple’s Board of Directors announced a 7-for-1 forward stock split to take effect on June 6, 2014. A forward split increases the number of outstanding shares and lowers the price of the stock proportionately. For example, if you own 10 shares of a stock valued at $70 per share, a 7-for-1 split would leave you with 70 shares valued at $10 per share. In this example, your position still has the same overall value of $700.
Will my shares be affected by the split?
If you own AAPL shares when the market closes on June 6, 2014, you’ll receive 7 shares for every 1 share you own. It may take a few extra days for the shares to reach your account, but we’ll post them as soon as they arrive. The price of your shares may look a little funky until the split is finalized, but not to worry! AAPL will begin trading at their new, adjusted share price on June 9, 2014.

I remember my first stock split.

The value of my holdings is the same, so IDGAF.

How much do you think AAPL will be worth at the end of the year? Being that any peasant with an E*Trade account can now buy stock, will there be any sort of run on it? Yes, the company hasn't changed, but how many Lt. Dan's out there will think that this is a good time to get in on it?

Using the $100 example:

1 share @ $700/share = $700

7 for 1 split = 7 shares @ $100 = $700

7 shares @ $150/share = $1050

It doesn't. You just have 7x shares and prices are lower, making it more accessible to individual investors (i.e. people buying 1-2 shares for some reason).

Nothing has changed.
