    I sold some july 70 puts on NUE in April. At the end of May they were split 2:1 for July 35 puts.

    I've never heard before of splits on options. Is this a common occurrence?
  2. Yep, when the stock splits (or the company issues stock dividends), the options are adjusted, or "made whole" as they say.

    OK that explains it. Thanks for the clarification:)
