When a stock splits, a corporation increases its shares outstanding. As a result, the share price usually decreases, because the total value of the shares owned will remain the same. For example, if an investor owned 100 shares of a company that authorized a 2 for 1 split, he or she would then own 200 shares, 2 shares for every 1. Companies often use a stock split because their stock price is too high to attract interest or because they want to increase the number of shares outstanding.
When the board of directors of a company decides to increase the number of shares that they have outstanding, pending shareholder approval. What happens is the number of shares increases and the price of an individual share decreases. For example, if a company announces a 4 for 1 stock split and you have 200 shares of stock at $100 a share, you end up with 800 shares of stock at $25 a share. The value stays the same for the shareholder.
When a company splits its stock, it means that it will issue additional shares to the existing investors by reducing the face value of a stock.

The issuance by a corporation of a large number of shares of stock in proportion to the existing shares outstanding. A split changes the book value and the par value.
A process by which the number of shares of outstanding stock in a company increases but the price of the stock decreases.

an increase in the number of shares outstanding by a fixed ratio, such as in a two for one stock split, the previous owner of one share of stock would have two shares after the stock split. One's total equity interest remains the same. (Your piece of pie is no larger or smaller than before the stock split takes place. After a two for one stock split, your two new shares (pieces of pie) equal your old one share (piece of pie). If, for example, the price of one share of stock was $100.00 before the stock split, the owner would have 2 shares at a price of $50.00 per share after the stock split occurs.
A method of reducing stock price by allocating newly issued stock to shareholders according to their current holdings.
Decided by the company's board of directors, to divide the stock to create more stocks. Reverse stock split is when the number of stocks is reduced.
Forward split: An increase in the number of shares of a corporation without any change in the shareholder's equity. Usually done to make a stock more marketable by reducing its price. Eg, if XYZ stock is trading at 100 & does a 2/1 forward split, each shareholder will have twice as many shares with the stock now priced at 50. Reverse split: A decrease in the number of shares of a corporation without any change in the shareholder's equity. Done to raise the price of a stock, usually to above the level of a “penny stock.
A common stock distribution to current stockholders, at a ratio to the amount of shares already owned. No bookkeeping adjustment is made, other than issuance of new shares. (See Stock Dividend.)
An increase in the number of shares and a proportionate decrease in the price per share which effectively maintains the market capitalization of a security.
An action taken by a firm to increase the number of share outstanding, such as doubling the number of share outstanding by giving each stockholder two new share for each one formerly held.
The division of the outstanding shares of a corporation into a larger number of shares. A 3-for-1 split by a company with 1 million shares outstanding results in 3 million shares outstanding, but proportionate equity in the company would remain the same. Ordinarily, splits must be voted by directors and approved by shareholders.
The division of a company's outstanding common shares into a larger amount of common shares, leaving each stockholder's proportional share the same.
An increase in the number of outstanding shares of a corporation's stock. For example, if you own 100 shares of stock in a corporation and that corporation has a 2-for-1 stock split, you own 200 shares after the split; however, your actual equity in the company does not change, since the number of shares doubled as well. In a reverse stock split, the number of outstanding shares is decreased instead of increased.
Division of shares into a larger number of shares of lower unit value. Proportional ownership of the shares remains the same.
When a company increases the number of shares outstanding by splitting existing shares. A 2-for-1 split means every stockholder gets two new shares for each one they own, and a 3-for-2 split means they get three shares for every two they own. The price of an individual share falls, but stockholders do not lose money because they are being given the equivalent number of new shares.
This is when, for example, two shares of a stock are ‘called’ by the company and one share is issued in lieu of the two shares. This cuts the amount of stock outstanding in half, and doubles the price of the remaining shares. This is normally done when a company desires to have a higher price for its stock for accounting or merger reasons, or to qualify the stock for a more prestigious exchange. As a rule of thumb, a reverse split is done to mitigate the effects of a declining stock price, and is not, therefore, a good sign in regards to the health of the company.
An example of this is when a company issues two shares for every share outstanding. This would double the amount of shares outstanding and cut the price of the stock in half. This is usually done when a stock price has been steadily climbing, and rather than have an extremely expensive stock no one wishes to purchase, the price per share is then brought down to levels attractive to the average stock purchasers. As a rule of thumb, this is a very good sign for the company and the stock price usually quickly climbs back up again. While a two for one split is the most common, the amount can be three for one, or any combination that has the desired.
The division of the outstanding number of shares into a higher number of shares. The market price per share drops proportionately.
an increase in the number of outstanding shares of a corporation without changing the shareholders' equity; "they announced a two-for-one split of the common stock"
a corporate action that increases the number of the corporation's outstanding shares by dividing each share, which in turn diminishes its price
a cosmetic change of the stock price (it looks cheaper), but that's about it, as far as I understand
a cosmetic increase in the number of shares outstanding, thereby reducing the total value of each share
a division of a company's shares of stock into more shares
a measure designed to enable investors, including those with only limited funds, to invest in a company by reducing the share purchase unit

a process in which one share of a security is converted into a specified number of shares
a split in the face value of a share
a type of corporate action that replaces shares in a public company with
A distribution of additional shares that makes no value change in a shareholders' ownership of a company. In a common 2-for-1 split, an investor with 100 shares receives 100 more. To account for that, the share price drops in half.
An increase in the number of outstanding shares in a corporation. This is usually brought about by the division of existing shares. For example, a two-for-one split means that shareholders will receive two new shares for each old share, making a total of three. Alternately, a reverse stock split brings about the decrease in the numbers of shares in a corporation.
The result of a corporation dividing its shares into more shares with a corresponding decrease in par value; for example, if a corporation declares a 2â€‘forâ€‘1 stock split, then all shareholders of record will receive one additional share for each share they currently own.
A stock split simply involves a company altering the number of its shares outstanding and proportionally adjusting the share price to compensate. This in no way affects the intrinsic value or past performance of your investment, if you happen to own shares that are splitting. A typical example is a 2-for-1 stock split. A company will announce that it's splitting its stock 2-for-1 in one month. One month from that date, the company's shares (having traded the day before at, say, Lm10) will now be trading at half the price from the previous day (so they'll open at Lm5). The company, which had 10 million shares outstanding, now consequently has 20 million shares outstanding. The price has been halved in order to accommodate a doubling of the share total.
Marketing strategy where the number of shares is doubled and the price per share is decreased by 50%. For example, 100 shares are increased to 200 shares but the price per share drops from $100 to $50.
Division of an outstanding stock issue into a larger number of shares, each at a lower proportionate market price. The intent is to reduce the price per share, thus making the stock more affordable for investors and increasing trading activity.
The dividing of shares which results in increased shares of a corporation but at a proportionately lower price. For example, a person who has 100 shares worth $10 each, after a split of 2 to 1, would have 200 shares worth $5 each. The value of shares held would therefore remain the same, $1000.
A company-initiated increase in the number of shares of the company's stock, accompanied by a decrease in share price, so that shareholder equity remains the same. For example, in a "2 for 1" stock split, a shareholder who had 100 shares of the stock when its price was $60 a share will have 200 shares valued at $30 a share after the split. Also called a split.
When a company wants to make its shares more attractive and affordable to a greater number of investors, it may authorize a stock split to create more shares selling at a lower price. A 2-for-1 stock split, for example, doubles the number of existing shares and halves the face value and it's price. If you own 100 shares, having face value of Rs.10 each, and it is selling at Rs.50 a share, total market value of your shares is Rs.5,000 and the company's board of directors authorize a 2-for-1 split, you would own 200 shares, having face value of Rs.5 each and it's market price, normally, would be Rs.25, with the same face value of Rs.1000 and market value of Rs.5,000. Announcements of stock splits, or anticipated stock splits, often generate a great deal of interest. Buyers may simply want to take advantage of the lower share price, or they may believe that the split stock will increase in value, moving back toward its presplit price. In addition, a company can reverse the process and consolidate shares to reduce their number by authorizing a reverse stock split.
The division of a stock into a larger number of lower-priced shares
An increase in the number of outstanding shares of a stock or mutual fund with a corresponding adjustment in the share price. A stock split has no effect on the market value or the value of the owner's shares. For example, if a stock selling for $100 per share splits 2-for-1, a shareholder with 100 shares worth $10,000 before the split would have 200 shares worth $50 per share after the split, with the same $10,000 value.
The sub-division of one share unit into more share units.
Occurs when a firm issues new shares of stock and in turn lowers the current market price of its stock to a level that is proportionate to pre-split prices. For example, if IBM trades at $100 before a two-for-one split, after the split it will trade at $50, and holders of the stock will have twice as many shares as they had before the split. See: Split.
when a company's stock price rises to a very high level, it may “split” its stock to bring the share price into a more accessible range. The holder of existing shares will receive additional shares as a result of the split. The price of the stock will be reduced but the value of the investor's holdings remains unchanged.
An allocation of newly issued stock to shareholders according to their current holdings so t there is no change in the shareholders' relative ownership positions. A company generally uses a stock split to reduce its stock's price to w the company believes will be a more marketable trading level.
An increase in the number of outstanding shares by a corporation, through the issuance of a set number of shares to a shareholder for a set number of shares that the shareholder already owns. For example, a corporation might declare a '2-for-1 stock split.' This means that for every share of stock an investor owns, he/she will be given another, thus owning 2 shares instead of 1. There will be a corresponding reduction in equity value per share. In this case, the new shares (post-split) will be worth one-half their previous value but the investor will own twice as many shares. See also Stock dividend
A stock split either reduces or increases the number of outstanding shares and increases or decreases the per-share price proportionately. Stock splits do not change the market value of the corporation's stock since everything is pro-rata. For example, if a company declares a one-for-ten reverse split, then a person who previously held 100 shares valued at $1/share will then have 10 shares valued at $10/share. If a forward split of 2 for 1 is declared, then a person holding 100 shares valued at $10/share will then have 200 shares valued at $5/share. See also Reverse Stock Split
Increase in the number of shares of a company's common stock outstanding that result from the issuance of additional shares proportionally to existing stockholders without additional capital investment. The par value of each share is reduced proportionally.
The division of a company's existing stock into more shares. In a 2-for-1 split, each stockholder would receive an additional share for each share formerly held and the price would be split in half.
The term used to describe the division of shares into a larger number of shares with lower unit value. There is no change to the proportional holding of shares.
An increase (or decrease) in the number of a company's authorized shares. The individual's overall value remains the same, but the number of shares owned changes.
A division of the shares of a companyâ€™s commons stock that results in an increase in the amount of outstanding shares by the multiple of the split. The value of each outstanding share is reduced by the multiple of the split. For example, when a stock trading at $100 on the pay date with 1 million shares outstanding splits 2 for 1, the result is 2 million shares outstanding with a $50 market value.
Division of a company's outstanding common shares into a larger number of common shares. A three-for-one split by a company with one million shares outstanding would result in three million shares outstanding. Each holder of 100 shares before the three-for-one split would have 300 shares after the split, but his or her proportionate equity in the company would remain the same
An increase in the number of a stock's shares that results in decreasing the par value of its stock.
The splitting or dividing of shares to reduce the price needed for the formation of a round lot (To illustrate, in a 2-for-1 split, when 1 shares splits into 2, an investor would receive one additional share for each he formerly owned.)
Issuing additional new shares for those now outstanding.
When your ex-wife and her lawyer split all your assets equally between them.
Additional shares of stock distributed to shareholders at no cost. The number of shares received are a ratio of the shares owned. The basis of the original shares is generally apportioned equally to the total shares owned after the split.
an increase in the number of common shares outstanding by a fixed ratio, say 2-to-1 or 3-to-1, with proportionate allocation of underlying common equity (i.e., the sum of common stock, capital surplus, and retained earnings) and earnings to the increased number of shares outstanding. Total common equity remains the same. From an accounting standpoint, the mix of retained earnings, capital surplus, and common stock remains unchanged. See Stock Dividend. When there is a stock split or dividend, all historical per-share numbers (including past share prices) are adjusted to reflect the new shares outstanding. If, for example, a company's stock traded in a range of 40 to 60 last year and it reported earnings of $2.00 per share, after adjustment for a 2-for-1 stock split, the price range for last year would be 20 to 30 and earnings would be $1.00 a share.
Stock split is when a company either increases or decreases the amount of its shares, for example if a company has one million outstanding shares announces a 2-for-1 split, it means that the company has doubled the amount of its outstanding shares and it will have 2 million outstanding shares after the split. So if a stockholder held 100 shares worth Rp 2000 each, after the split he/she will have 200 shares with price Rp 1000 each.
a situation where a company decides to divide its number of shares outstanding (typically each stock becomes two stocks) in order to make it an easier for new investors to attain the holding because the share price is reduced (if each stock becomes two, the individual share price is reduced by 50%)
The division of a company's existing stock into more shares. In a two-for-one split, each stockholder would receive an additional share for each share already held.
The replacement of outstanding shares of stock with a greater number of new shares that have a proportionately lower par or stated value.
Division of a company's outstanding common shares into a larger number of common shares. A two-for-one split means you get two shares for each one you own. Companies use stock splits to make it more affordable for investors to buy shares in board lots of 100 shares.
Where a division of existing shares causes an increase in the number of outstanding shares in a corporation.
A distribution of company's own capital stock to existing stockholders with the purpose of reducing the market price of the stock, which would hopefully increase the demand for the shares
An increase in a corporation's outstanding shares that decreases the par value of its stocks. The market value of the total number of shares remains the same, and there is no change in individual shareholders' equity.
A distribution of additional shares to each stockholder in proportion to the shares the individual already owns. A stock split has no immediate effect on a stockholder’s equity. For example, if a stock splits 2-for-1, a shareholder who owns one share with a $100 par value before the split, would own two shares, each with a $50 par value, after the split.
A change in the number of shares outstanding (in circulation). The number of shares are adjusted by the split ratio, e.g. 2 to 1. In this case, 1000 shares splits to 2000 but the opening price and current price are cut in half. The overall effect is to maintain the same cost and current value of an investment while increasing the number of shares and lowering the per share price. Reverse splits reduce the number of shares. Splits are done to reduce the cost per share to make it easier for small investors to own the stock in round lots.
An increase in the number of shares of a corporation through the distribution of additional shares to existing stockholders. For example, in a two-for-one split, each common stockholder ends up owning twice as many shares as were held previously. Once the stock split is declared, the price per share is likely to decline by about half to reflect the greater number of shares in existence. A two-for-one split is similar to receiving two 10-dollar bills in exchange for a 20.
the trade of a given number of old shares of stock for a certain number of newly issued shares Š”Ž®•ªŠ„iŠ”Žå‚ÉVŠ”‚ð”s‚·‚é‚±‚ÆAŠz–Ê‚ÍŒ¸‚·‚éj
Partitioning the outstanding shares of a corporation into a larger number of shares, without affecting shareholders' equity or the total market value at the time of the split. For instance, if a stock valued at $100 splits 2-for-1, an investor who owns 100 shares would now own 200 shares valued at $50. Splits usually must be voted on by directors and approved by shareholders. See: Equity; Outstanding Stock; Reverse Split; Shareholder's Equity; Split
Distribution of new shares to each stock shareholder on a proportional basis to the number of shares already held by that individual.
Occurs when a corporation increases the number of outstanding shares of stock without any change in the shareholders aggregate market value at the time of the split. In a split, the share price declines and shares held increases. A holder of 50 shares before a 2-for-1 split will have 100 shares at a lower price after the split.
Stock split refers to a corporate action that increases the number of shares in a public company. The price of the shares are adjusted such that the before and after market capitalization of the company remains the same and dilution does not occur. Options and warrants are included.
