A question

I use Robinhood to trade stocks. I had 10 shares of a stock called GALE which was only worth about $3. I woke up today and now the stock is called SLS and worth about $7 each but it shows that I have no stock holdings. Where did my shares go, could someone help me? Thank you.

Looks like GALE did a 1 for 30 reverse stock split. Since you only had 10 shares you didn't have enough for 1 share and thus were most likely cashed out.

Wait, so they combined 30 shares into 1? (Sorry I’m new to investing)
