Stock Split

Stock Split defined: A stock split is a corporate action in which a company’s existing shares are divided into multiple shares. The total dollar value of the shares does not change because earnings per share remain proportional to pre-split levels. Stock splits do not add any value to shareholder’s equity but make share transactions more liquid since the price is more manageable for small investors.
