1. Calculating Stock Splits Mrs. Matiste

2. Why do corporations split stock? • Increases the number of shares outstanding • Decreases the market price per share • Stock is reduced proportionately to the new number of outstanding shares • Done to allow average stock buyers to afford stock • Or to increase the supply of stock • All new shares are distributed to existing stockholders • The corporation DOES NOT make money on stock splits

3. Stock Splits • In order to receive the split shares, you need not own the stock on the day of the split, you must own it WHEN THE SPLIT OCCURS! • Example: On April 20, XYZ Corporation announces a 2 for 1 stock split to occur on June 1. In order to get the split shares, you only have to own the stock prior to June 1st.

4. How IS Money Made When A Stock Splits? When Price/Share Goes Up!

5. Summary of Splits • 2 for 1 = 2 • 3 for 1 = 3 • 4 for 1 = 4 • 5 for 4 = 1.25 • 3 for 2 = 1.5 • 1 for 2 = .5 • 1 for 4 = .25

6. 2 for 1 – You would end up with twice as many shares as you had owned and the price would be divided by 2 3 for 1 – You would end up with three times as many shares as you had owned and the price would be divided by 3 Reverse Split – Decreases the number of shares and increases the market price per share (USUALLY A BAD SIGN) Causes 1) # of shares to decrease 2) Price/share to increase ½ for 1 – You would end up with one half as many shares as you had owned and the price would be multiplied by 2
