Today the announced Apple Stock split goes in affect. The Apple Stock will start trading at $92.10.
Do not get shocked when you see a 85% drop in the Apple Stock this morning. It is a stock split. Apple announced the 7-to-1 stock split a couple weeks ago. Today marks the first trading day after the stock split. Apple stock holders have already gotten 6 additional shares for each AAPL share in their trading accounts. The Apple stock is close to it's all-time high again it reached 2012.
If the stock goes over $101 it would mark a new all-time high. The new below $100 stock price makes Apple more accessible for smaller investors. Another advantage is that now Apple would fit into the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index.
