Are there online websites that have a list of recent stock splits? This sounds like something you would want to keep on eye on as a trader.
Either way you look at it, there could be trading potential from closely watching companies that split.
From the limited stock trading experience I have, I just remember learning that I must always do my own research. One thing that has stuck in my head is to never go into a trade that you have not researched yourself.
Understanding the company behind the stock is one of the first things to learn. If you blindly buy and sell stock based on what other people are telling you, your chances of success are pretty slim.
