Apple (AAPL) announced 4-for-1 forward stock split to take effect on August 31, 2020. As of August 31, 2020, shareholders will hold 4 shares of AAPL for every 1 share previously held. As a result, Apple will adjust their price per share to accommodate the increase in the company’s shares outstanding. A forward stock split does not by itself change the total dollar value of your position, but as always the value of a company’s stock may change due to market fluctuation.

Example 4-for-1 forward stock split:

If you own 1 share of Example Company valued at $500 per share, your investment would have a total value of $500 (price per share x amount of shares held). At the time the company completes the 4-for-1 forward split, you would own 4 shares valued at $125 per share, resulting in a total value invested of $500. The total value invested remains the same regardless of the split.
