    Does dividend split too?

    The dividend gets cut in half. However, since the number of shares one holds after the split is doubled the overall effect remains the same .... ( ie; yeild % remains the same)

    • I don't know what exactly will happen however I looked at the historical prices, dividends only for KO on this Yahoo Finance site for as far back as it goes and this shows what the dividend was the three dividends before the split and the three dividends after the split. Will it happen this way again? I hope so but I have no crystal ball:
