Re: Why did they split this thing?.....the split was announced 2/28/2017 effective for 5/1/2017 ---

Direxion expected the share prices to necessitate the splits -

as Direxion explains:


Q: Why has Direxion Investments decided to reverse split ETFs?
A: Direxion believes it is in our shareholders’ best interest to conduct a reverse split in order to keep the ETF’s price in a convenient trading range.

For instance, Direxion expects the costs associated with trading these ETFs to decrease due to the split. The bid-ask spread is expected to decline as a percentage of the price paid per share. For instance, a penny spread on a $5 stock is 20 basis points1 (.2%), while a penny spread on a $50 stock is 2 basis points (.02%). Further, commissions charged by brokers who charge their clients on a per share basis will be lower as investors will need to buy or sell fewer shares to meet their investment goals.

Why did they split this thing? Usually they do that when a share price gets down to lower single digits. JDST was in the $12-$15 range of late,
