The big talk over the last couple of weeks have been around the pending #stocksplits we have coming up — one of the things pressing was shareholder vote. For $AMZN , that was a “Go” like I expected (I voted for it😬)! One of the caveat to their split is the buy-back that had the potential to pull up the price per share quickly due to the company buying back shares of the said stock. It happens all the time and isn’t a bad thing. With #Amazon , their split happens on June 3rd and the new price per share will show up on June 6th! Pending on what the last share price prior to the split will determine the new price — which is looking around $150 ish range. But with some brokerage accounts — the volume of shares might take some time to reflect within your holdings….this happened with me on a couple splits like $AAPL and $TSLA . 📌One thing that isn’t being talked about is “record date”. Record date is the cut-off date companies (and the SEC) uses to determine which shareholders are entitled to a corporate #dividend (keep this in mind). This is also used for stock splits (reverse ones as well). Think of the “record” as being on the “list”. For this split, the list date was May 27th to see the volume of shares. Now, if you missed that date are you taking an L?! Nope. You still can grab a great company at a solid price after the split. We know how Amazon works with the buy-back, it could help In the long run. What if you don’t have a full share? Don’t fret? You will still see a bump of some sort on June 3rd. This will be calculated automatically. You can also grab some great #ETF s with Amazon in them! We are a good bit out from $GOOGL and their split on July 15th. Same volume: 20-for-1. Looking like the “record” for them will be July 1st. There’s no wrong way to play a split. What’s your goal with it? Is it volume or buy-in (budget)? But you still can do the volume on the buy-in. It’s up to you! #fractional +ETFs aren’t a bad move either! Went through the last couple of splits with Tesla and Apple, so I’m here for questions Peeps! What are your thoughts? #stock101 #betterfutureahead #possibilities #stockanalysis #stockalerts #recorddate
