Here's my two cents...the folks on CNBC say that stock splits are non-events for the shareholders. Over the years, the stocks I've been in that did split and those that I just watched have had a nasty habbit of falling below the split price. My company has yet to get above its split price and that was a year ago. What I see is ususally a run up in price to the split date...then it falls post-split. My advise is sell the day before, let it fall and buy back in post-split; you get more shares than if you stayed in it and let it split.
