Umm... what's up with VOO today?...

Why does it show that Vanguard's ETF  VOO is up 100% today?

Sooo... can I retire now?

They were planning a 2 to 1 reverse split. Today might have been the day.

that's what it looks like to me... I've bought this recently and paid ~$79, so that would make sense.
But I didn't see anything in the recent headlines that said a 2:1.

Yahoo is terrible.

Definitely 1:2 reverse split day. Google finance labels it properly and retroactively adjusts share prices.
