re: Reverse stock split.

This is the opposite of a stock split, in which a company increases its outstanding shares by a set multiple. For example, if a company announces a reverse stock split of 1:100, this means that once the split occurs, investors will receive one share for every 100 shares they own.

If you own a stock and it announces a Reverse Stock Split, SELL in time before the announced date. If you like the stock you can then buy back in.

Because I haven't been paying attention, I have lost lots of money in the process on several stocks.

ETF's has to be watched all the time.

TWTR is one of biggest loser. Even though TWTR is a good stock I have to wait until it gets back to 61.00.

If a stock splits normally where you get extra shares as I have done with GMCR and SBUX is a bonus because the company is doing an excellent job and would like to share it the wealth process.

Hope this can help
