Not "non-monetary event" because that would make too much sense. I've never really seen this kind of a question before, but someone asked me that question because they didn't know what it meant either, it has something to do with stocks after a split as far as I can gather, but no online source seems to use that phrase.

    $\begingroup$ "It will be a a monetary non-event", just means it is not going to make any difference from an economic (dollars and cents) point of view. The dictionary definition of non-event is "a disappointing or insignificant event or occasion, especially one that was expected or intended to be exciting or interesting". In other words "we expected something, nothing much happened". $\endgroup$ – noob2 Oct 23 '17 at 13:04
  • $\begingroup$ See a dictionary definition doesn't necessarily carry the context in this specific field. For instance you can say something is derivative of something else, but that has a very different meaning in literary terms from mathematical terms. If what you're saying is true you should be able to reference a credible source that says "this is a monetary non-event." $\endgroup$ – RayOfHope Oct 23 '17 at 15:44
  • $\begingroup$ Quote "For all intents and purposes, stock splits don't affect shareholders. Actually, they're kind of a non-event … at least as far as you're concerned." fool.com/answers/faq/stock-splits $\endgroup$ – noob2 Oct 23 '17 at 15:51
