Do you think AAPL will split soon?

The last two splits were around $80 and $60. It seems companies usually have a "Comfort" level that they like to keep the price below per share. I think if it stays above $90 for a few months or breaks $100, it will likely split.

I think it will be a while before it splits. They might want the price to settle in one range for a while and give the stock option backdating issue to drop out of the news.

What diff does it make. The fundamentals remain the same. It's like saying you get more chocolate from 2 1/2lb candy bars than you do from a 1lb bar. What you need to look at isn't the net weight, but the ingredients.

What chupa chupa said. Who cares?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

STock splits are typically an "advertising ploy" for the stock...

"AAPL on sale for HALF PRICE!" What a hot deal! it WAS $100, NOW it's only $50!

You're right... ZERO fundamental difference, since a share represents a smaller fraction of ownership of the company post-split than it did pre-split, and the company's fundamentals don't change...

But it CAN attract new investors and keep interest high in the stock.


Personally? I don't see it splitting below $110, and even then, I think Apple might hold off a bit and bask in the >$100 glow.

Didn't it split when it hit 170/180, last time ?

I sold half my shares post split when it was falling like a rock.
IIRC, around 110. Bought in at 18, so the freefall was not a 'real' loss.

I've heard most companies won't split the stock unless they feel it is heading substantially higher.

If true, wouldn't that convince some investors to buy?

last split was in the high 80s. I think it dropped to the 40-45 range post-split.

Must've been another stock(besides AAPL) I dumped in the Summer of 2000 that got that high.
