Apple today announced a 2 for 1 stock split, approved by Apple’s Board of Directors. The number of authorized Apple common stock was proportionally increased from 900 million to 1.8 billion. All shareholders on record at the close of business on February 18 will receive one additional share for each share outstanding held. Trading of adjusted stock begins February 28th. Of note to stockholders, this move does not increase or decrease the value of the stock, but is simply a move to decrease the cost of each stock while simultaneously increasing the number of stock available.

  1. w00t. I bought apple stock 7 months ago. its been a good 7 months. I hope that what happend last time apple’s stock split doesnt happen again….

  2. Anyone have an opinion on a possible stock split in the near future?

  3. I bought 10 shares of Apple Stock back in 1983 and have the stock certificate in my possession as well as in my name. The stock has since split three times and I have no additional stock certificates indicating I own more than my original 10 shares. Is there a way to find out what happened to those shares?
