Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) Stock Split History

Amazon.com Inc. has split its stock 4 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on June 02, 1998 with the ratio of 2-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of AMZN owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 2 shares. 3 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on June 06, 2022 on a 20-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased AMZN stock's liquidity and made it more appealing to a larger group of investors. However, it's important to remember that these actions only change the number of shares and the price per share with no impact on Amazon.com Inc.'s total market capitalization.

Will Amazon.com Inc. Stock Split in 2024?

The answer will depend on the decisions of the company's managers and market volatility. Amazon.com Inc. has not made an official announcement regarding whether it will enact a stock split or reverse stock split, but it has a history of doing so when AMZN stock prices become too high or too low for retail investors. Therefore, the ultimate decisions will certainly be made by Amazon.com Inc.'s board of directors. Typically, no action is taken until its price per share reaches a specific threshold.
