PNC - PNC Financial Services $67.12 (+0.97)
PNC last split its shares 2:1 in November of 1992 when the stock was trading at $54.50. We are expecting a 2:1 split announcement in conjunction with earnings on 4/16.
PPDI - Pharmaceutical Product Development $49.14 (+3.39)
PPDI has never split its shares but is trading near all-time highs and at historic split-levels for its industry. We are expecting a 3:2 split announcement with PPDI's earnings release on 4/16.
REI - Reliant Energy $45.54 (+1.99)
REI last split its shares 2:1 in December of 1995 when the stock was trading at $47.00. We are anticipating a 2:1 split announcement out of the company's earnings release on 4/16.
PEG - Public Service Enterprise Group $44.43 (+1.78)
PEG last split its shares 3:2 all the way back in July of 1987 at $37.00. Given the current price, we are banking on another 3:2 split to come out of PEG's earnings date of 4/18.
ASD - American Standard Companies $59.70 (+1.09)
ASD has never split its shares but is knocking on all-time record highs above the key $50 mark for a split. We are looking towards the firm's earnings release of 4/19 as a good time for a 2:1 split announcement.
EPG - El Paso Energy Corp. $67.07 (+4.32)
EPG last announced a 2:1 split in January of 1998 when the stock was at $66.94. Therefore, we believe another 2:1 could be in the cards on EPG's earnings date of 4/19.
GENZ - Genzyme General $101.23 (+7.40)
GENZ last split 2:1 in July of 1996 at $47.25. Given that GENZ is now over $100, we feel another 2:1 split announcement could come on 4/19, the firm's earnings date.
SDS - SunGard Data Systems $51.14 (+3.09)
SDS last announced a 2:1 split in August of 1997 when the stock was at $48.94. We are now expecting a 2:1 announcement to accompany earnings on 4/19.

ACS - Affiliated Computer Services $64.01 (-0.61)
ACS last split its shares 2:1 back in late 1996 when the stock was trading at about $60. We are therefore looking for a 2:1 split announcement to coincide with earnings on 4/20.
