2-for 1 Stock Split: On April 3, 2014, Google issued a "stock dividend" of one Class C, nonvoting share for each Class A voting share. The effect was a two-for-one stock split. The Class C shares were given the old stock ticker, GOOG, while GOOGL is the ticker for Class A "VOTING" shares. I ONLY recommend one of these in my newsletter and recommend avoiding the other.
