You might have noticed that the price of some of the Exchange Traded
Funds (ETFs) you follow seem oddly lower today...If so, that is because
Barclays Global Investors split a few of their iShares to allow easier
access for a small initial investment (their words), writes Nick Perry, who covers ETFs for Schaeffer's Investment Research. Details:

The following ETFs split 3-for-1 this morning:

  • iShares MSCI Emerging Markets (EEM)
  • iShares Russell 2000 Value (IWN)
  • iShares S&P SmallCap 600 (IJR)
  • iShares MSCI EAFE (EFA).

Meanwhile those below split two-for-one this morning:

  • iShares Goldman Sachs Natural Resources (IGE)
  • iShares S&P MidCap 400/Barra Growth (IJK)
  • iShares S&P MidCap 400 (IJH)
  • iShares S&P MidCap 400/Barra Value (IJJ)
  • iShares Russell 2000 (IWM)
