Fleeting Figment

On Saturday I logged into my Fidelity Roth IRA account with the plan to check on and, likely, cancel some open limit orders.  Imagine my surprise (and short lived excitement) when the total value for my Roth IRA had jumped upwards by more than a $100,000.  I quickly realized that my Apple stock was showing the post 7-1 stock split with the pre-split price.

It seemed odd, to me, that Fidelity would combine the two pieces of data, over the weekend.  Better to just leave it as is until Monday and today my short lived wealth has disappeared.
