I would hope that most owners of the stock would know about the split by now. The touchy point is for those who check after hour trading, and see that the stock has been suspended.Heh. I hardly ever read anything from them. Never anything of use to me.
My broker just called me to let me knowWhen I said it was complicated, I didn't just mean the cost of the trade. I meant that as even lots are easier to sell, they sell just a few milliseconds quicker. Or sometimes seconds quicker, or even tens of seconds quicker. That can mean a few pennies on the sale, or buy. If you put in a lot of, say 76 shares, it will linger longer than if you put one in at 50 or 100. All these trades are being do e electronically, and the sell...
Normally, I don't pay much attention to this, but with all the hoopla going around since it's a 7:1 split, I've been reading a lot of articles in the financial press about it. When discussing small investors, the conclusions are that it makes a stock more variable. Think of day traders, as an example.

My broker just called me to let me know, and to also tell me that it won't be available for after hours trading Friday. He knows I know this, but he's calling all the Apple clients.I haven't checked my emails to see if Scottrade is letting me know this on my account there.
For my sake, I hope you're both right. Open at $100, and zip right to $150.
Stocks are easier to buy in standard blocks such as 50 shares, 100 shares, etc. selling too.
