    Alongside their Q2 2014 results, Apple announced a 7 for 1 stock split. In other words every share of AAPL will soon become 7 shares of AAPL. Whenever a big company announces a stock split lots of people talk about it as if its some kind of big deal. It isnt really a big deal at all. Public companies like Apple have their shares traded on a stock exchange where average Joe buyers like you and I can buy and sell. Big money managers can do the same. The total number of shares in existence makes up the entire company. I often explain that its like cutting a pizza.
