Astrazeneca PLC (AZN) Stock Split History

Astrazeneca PLC has split its stock 2 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on April 08, 1998 with the ratio of 3-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of AZN owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 3 shares. The most recent stock split took place on July 27, 2015 on a 2-for-1 basis.

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

Will Astrazeneca PLC Stock Split in 2024?

The answer will depend on the decisions of the company's managers and market volatility. Astrazeneca PLC 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 AZN stock prices become too high or too low for retail investors. Therefore, the ultimate decisions will certainly be made by Astrazeneca PLC's board of directors. Typically, no action is taken until its price per share reaches a specific threshold.
