What happens if someone buys on Nov 28 ??? Does he get the shares ???Or if someone who owned before Nov 27 and sells on Nov 28 ???
YES - it does not matter when you buy the shares you get the split. Unless of course you are holding the actual stock certificates in hand then you would have to turn them into the company. I don't know anyone that holds the certificates anymore and odds are your shares are probably held at DTC or one of the other clearing houses. You will not notice anything different on the 27th or 28th.
