I believe the shares will trade at their split cost on June 30, so any shares you own at close of business June 29 will be split 3 ways.

The short answer: don't worry about it, you can't lose money. Either you'll buy shares that split, or you'll pay 1/3 price for shares after the split.

There is *one* difference it makes: if you use market orders, you effectively pay the spread between bid and ask prices on three times as many shares if you wait until after the split to buy them. Generally, though, I agree that it makes no significant difference.
