What is a stock split?
A stock split is a corporate action taken by companies that have seen their share price increase to levels that are either too high or are beyond the price levels of similar companies in their sector, to divide their existing shares into two or more shares.
Why do stocks split?
The primary motive is to make the shares more affordable to small investors even though the underlying value of the company has not changed. Therefore, after bringing in a record Q3 revenue, Apple would like its stock to be more accessible to a broader base of investors.
What is the split ratio?
Apple also announced it will split its stock in a 4-to-1 offering.
What will this split mean to investors?
Each share of Apple stock that an investor owns before Ex-Date (Aug 31st, 2020) will be eligible for stock split. Investors will receive three additional shares and the stock price will be quartered.
Here is an example:
If an investor owns 100 shares and the market price is $400, after 4 for 1 stock split, the investor will own 100*4= 400 shares and the estimated post-split price would be $400/4 = $100.
All pending orders: Buy Limit, Sell Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Stop, Buy Stop Limit, Sell Stop Limit, will be deleted.
Does the 4-to-1 stock split mean the value of my AAPL shares will increase three times?
Unfortunately, not. As stated in the above example, the increase in the number of stocks means every share is now worth less than its previous value, precisely, it’ll be 1/4th the previous value.
How do stock splits affect short sellers?
Stock splits do not affect short sellers in a material way. There are some changes that occur as a result of a split that affects the short position, but they don’t affect the value of the short position(s).
