    Is AAPL Split good or bad?

    Splitting a stock has traditionally been a sign of both a healthy company and one that's interested in the welfare of it's shareholders. With both Google and Apple, however, the shareholders are largely institutional and care less than the general public about volatility.

    And splitting the stock reduces volatility. It also makes shares more affordable to the average investor. the public is far less leery about buying a $50 stock than a $300 stock.
