Ep #22: Stock Splits

I’ve seen a couple of prominent stock splits recently, so in this episode, I’ll be talking about what stock splits are and how they work. Listen in to get a crash course on the pros and cons of a stock split, as well as some common misconceptions about them.

Keep in mind that this is not a recommendation in any way to buy any of the stocks that I discuss. They are, however, great examples for me to explain how stock splits work and allow you to get a better understanding of what they are and how they may or may not affect your finances.
