How To Enter a Stock Split

  1. In the Account Bar list, select the account you want to use.
  2. Click Enter Transactions.
  3. In the Enter Transaction list, select Stock Split.
  4. Use this dialog to record the split.
    • Transaction date
      Enter the date on which the split occurred.
    • Security name and Account
      One of these fields will be prefilled, depending on the location from which you accessed the Stock Split dialog.
    • New shares and Old shares
      Enter the ratio of new shares to old. For example, if the stock split is 2-for-1, enter 2 in the New Shares field and 1 in the Old Shares field.
    • Price after split
      Enter the new post-split stock price in the Price After Split field. In a 2-for-1 split, your number of shares would be doubled, but the price per share would be reduced by half. The market value of your total holdings of this security would be unchanged.

Note: For a 1-for-2 reverse stock split, enter 1 in the New Shares field and 2 in the Old Shares field.
