Question about stock purchase and stock split
Several years ago I purchased some shares of stock and received a stock certificate. I'll use 100 shares of XYZ stock as an example.
A short time after I purchased the shares and received the certificate, the company announced a 2 for 1 stock split and it took place a couple of months later.
Down the road, when I go to sell the shares, will I still only own 100 shares? Or will I receive the benefit of the stock split and own 200 shares?
Thanks in advance for your help!
