Fastenal Co. (FAST) Stock Split History

Fastenal Co. has split its stock 8 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on September 19, 1988 with the ratio of 3-for-2, meaning that for 2 shares of FAST owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 3 shares. 7 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on May 23, 2019 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased FAST 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 Fastenal Co.'s total market capitalization.

Will Fastenal Co. Stock Split in 2024?

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