Here's the setup. I purchased a stock last month and as of the close today the stock is up 33.12%. The unrealized gain is $520. The stock is definitely in a uptrend with only slight consolidations and continued breakouts. Next Friday 22 June the company is paying a dividend in the form of a forward stock split of 5-1.Here are the points I'm considering:1. If the stock starts a downtrend do I sell and take the profits before the split or do I hang out and get the stock split of 5-1? Hoping for continued uptrend after the split.2. With the stock split I increase my holdings from 500 shares to 2000 shares a 400% increase. How do you think the stock will perform following the split based on the trend before the split, continue the uptrend or a pending reversal?Just looking for opinions, not advice. Thanks in advance.JK
