  1. Not clear about the Lame Duck grey area between Aug 17th and Aug 24th. What exactly happens to stock and concept what might happen in regards to trading volume during that time. I fully understand prior and post but not those lost 7 days thanks

  2. Same question as Charles. Let’s say person A has a share on 8/17, and sold it between 8/18 and 8/24, and that share ended up being bought by person B. On 8/25 morning. Does person gets 2 shares again and person B only get 1 share of the new stock which value has been cut by 2/3?

    • The stocks/shares are not traded from person to person AFAIK, so, a person buying a Tesla stock after the 17th directly or from a broker will not get the benefit of the split, IMO.
