GDW last announced a split in November of 1999 when the stock was trading at $43.25. Given the stock's recent run up, we are expecting a 3:1 split announcement with GDW's earnings release on 4/23.

AHC - Amerada Hess Corp. $83.54 (+3.37)
It's been over 20 years since AHC has split its shares, but given its huge run up lately, we feel it's time again. We are looking towards the firm's earnings release of 4/25 as a good time for a 2:1 split announcement.
CHV - Chevron Corp. $93.25 (+2.45)
CHV last split 2:1 in June of 1994 when the stock was at $90.75. A quick glance at its current price is all it takes to see why we belive another 2:1 could be in the cards on CHV's earnings date of 4/25.
NNS - Newport News Shipbldg. $56.16 (+4.15)
NNS has never split its shares but given that NNS is now over $50, we feel a 2:1 split announcement could come on 4/25, the boat builder's earnings date.
