Especially since he announced that Tuesday afternoon and it jumped 400% Tuesday morning.  Definitely insider trading.

Stock splits make no sense to me in today’s market. You can buy fractional shares, trades are free so it’s not like you are getting reduced commission for trading 100+ shares like you used to, what’s the point? Accessibility to buy a full share with a paper certificate to frame I guess. I think grandparents probably still do stuff like that.

i'm very partial to holding shares in quantities of 100, 200, 500, 1000, etc., so i appreciate the splitting.


i can't imagine the horror of owning a partial share.  you can't even round up, i think all you could do is sell your holding and repurchase a round number of shares.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.
