HRB - H&R Block, Inc. $50.98 (+0.28)
The provider of tax preparation and financial services has not split its stock since 1991. It has historically split at the $60 level, so we are getting close to split territory at current prices. The company has 400 million shares authorized and only 91 million outstanding, so a 2:1 split is certainly possible. It announces earnings on 5/29, which may be a great time to reward shareholders with another split.
KMI - Kinder Morgan, Inc. $59.12 (+3.42)
Kinder Morgan last announced a 3:2 split back in November of 1999. At that time it was trading at $60/share. After a brief dip in 1999, KMI has taken only quick reprieves on its way to a 195% gain since 1/1/2000. The company unofficially reports earnings on 4/18/01. We are targeting this date as a likely time for another 3:2 split announcement.
LSTR - Landstar System, Inc. $68.88 (+0.44)
This trucking and transportation services company shows no signs of putting on the brakes soon. The stock is making new highs and although it has never split its shares, the stock is now trading at historical split-levels for the transportation sector. We believe the next target date for a 2:1 split is the company's earnings release date of 5/10.
