General Electric Co. (GE) Stock Split History

General Electric Co. has split its stock 9 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on June 08, 1971 with the ratio of 2-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of GE owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 2 shares. 8 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on April 02, 2024 on a 1253-for-1000 basis.

These splits have increased GE 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 General Electric Co.'s total market capitalization.

Will General Electric Co. Stock Split in 2024?

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