Synovus sets 1:7 reverse stock split

  • Synovus (SNV) expects the split to take effect on May 16, and for shares to begin trading on a post-split basis on May 19.
  • The stock price of the bank has been stuck in the $3 range ever since the financial crisis, and management hopes the boosted price will put the shares on the radar of a broader range of investors.
  • Shares -2.7% premarket

    So alerts go out to all those interested in SYN -- PM sell off on UNRELATED stock already started! Great. Please sent out CORRECTED alert to those receiving e-mails. Thanks.

    I apologize for originally including the mistaken symbol in this post. It has been corrected and a new alert was sent out to Synthetic Biologics subscribers.

    I have yet to see any new alert come through on Synthetic Biologics. Market has been open over an hour now and SYN is getting hit hard. This could be, at least in part, due to your mistake. Please get a new alert out, as you said you would. Thank you.

    Lot's of comments about the ticker but---does anyone think the reverse split will help? I think they should leave it alone.

    Yes, a favourable development for long-time Synovus shareholders, who have seen this stock languish in the past half-year. The heightened price may attract a bit more institutional interest and take away some of the taint that two and three-buck stocks seem to have.
