Colgate-Palmolive Co. (CL) Stock Split History

Colgate-Palmolive Co. has split its stock 5 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on May 30, 1973 with the ratio of 3-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of CL owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 3 shares. 4 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on May 16, 2013 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased CL 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 Colgate-Palmolive Co.'s total market capitalization.

Will Colgate-Palmolive Co. Stock Split in 2024?

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