    Question on the dividend after the split

    The dividend is a percentage based on the price of the stock. So, if it splits at $80 a share(round number to make it easy) it will earn the current 2.60% dividend on the split price of $40, but you will have two. The split will do nothing to affect the dividend. The affect it will have is purely psychological for the stock. People are more likely to buy a $40 stock than an $80 stock.
