When I fly on an airplane I know that turning on the "Fasten Seat Belt" indicator does not cause air turbulance but I still fasten my seat belt.

Yes, but when in mid-flight the captain comes on and says "Fasten your seatbelts" you can pretty much expect some turbulence.

I agree that a reverse split should be a non-event but in reality people react psychologically to it in a negative manner. Just like a standard split when people react positively to it. If there is one thing we should know about the markets is that they aren't about numbers a lot of the time. They are about group dynamics and .... whatever the proper term here is (gimme a break, it's Friday afternoon).
