Subject:  option after a split Date:  7/25/1999  1:44 PM

If an option expires after a stock split, what happens to the strike price and number of options after the split ?

If an august call option was purchased with a strike price of 30, and the stock splits july 30 (2:1) what happens ?

Is the strike price still 30 and only one option. Or, do you have 2 options at 15 ?
