shorting a stock that splits?what happens if you bought a stock for 100per share and it split 3-to-1 make the shares 33bucks? does that mean you just made a huge profit? or am i missing something here..
Things usually get repriced when a split occurs, so you would beshort 300 shares at your original sell price divided by 3.In general, if it looks like a no-risk way to make money, someonethought of it back in the 1890's.Chris - if TGT had never split it would be about 720/share today
