We owned Tyco for less than a year starting in December 199 and there were no stock splits during the period we held it. 

There was a reverse stock split on September 02, 2016 but Quicken shouldn't be bothering me with it.

    From the SEC prospectus filing, the FAQ section (highlights added):


    A:On January 24, 2016, Johnson Controls and Tyco entered into the merger agreement pursuant to which they agreed to combine their respective businesses under a single company.
      The merger is structured as a "reverse merger," in which Johnson Controls will merge with an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Tyco, with Tyco being the parent entity of the combined company. Following the merger, Tyco will change its name to "Johnson Controls International plc" (subject to the approval of the Registrar of Companies in Ireland) and is referred to as the "combined company." In the merger, each share of Johnson Controls common stock (other than certain shares described in the merger agreement) will be converted into, at the election of the holder of such share, either: (i) one ordinary share of the combined company (the "share consideration"); or (ii) $34.88 in cash, without interest (the "cash consideration"). Elections by Johnson Controls shareholders for the share consideration and the cash consideration will be subject to proration procedures set forth in the merger agreement, such that Johnson Controls shareholders will receive in the aggregate approximately $3.864 billion in cash.Immediately prior to the merger, Tyco shareholders will receive 0.955 ordinary shares of Tyco, which will become ordinary shares of the combined company in the merger, for each Tyco ordinary share they hold. Tyco shareholders will receive these shares by virtue of a 0.955-for-one share consolidation (the "Tyco share consolidation"). After consummation of the merger, Johnson Controls shareholders and Tyco shareholders are expected to own approximately 56% and 44%, respectively, of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of the combined company.
    So how to handle depends in part on whether you owned Tyco or Johnson.

    Over the years I've completely liquidated my holdings in many stocks.  I typically hide the security but I've not been as good at unchecking the Download Quotes box.  However, in these cases I no longer have been receiving quotes, even with the Download Quotes box still being checked.

    Tyco was both hidden and the Download Quotes box was unchecked,
