Google Split 20 for 1

Google investors who were shareholders of record by July 1, meaning those who owned shares of Google at market close on July 1, will gain an additional 19 shares – a onetime “share dividend” – for every share they own to complete the 20-for-1 split. Trading will start at the split-adjusted price Monday, July 18.…

Okay, my question is this, What will happen to any Google shares purchased between July 2nd - July 15th (before the split, but after the cutoff date)?


I assume CNET simply made a mistake with the July 1 reference. Whatever shares were owned at market close today, Friday July 15, will be the basis of the split.
