Power of iPhone 6 hype-gasm: Apple a sniff away from record stock high

Stock splits have nothing at all to do with the rate of growth of a share, their sole purpose is to put the share value at a level where smaller investors can afford to buy a minimum block. In theory a stock split or consolidation should have no impact at all on overall company value (although if you allow more small investors to purchase you may push up demand slightly and therefore slightly increase your overall market cap).
