Hershey Company (HSY) Stock Split History

Hershey Company has split its stock 4 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on September 16, 1983 with the ratio of 2-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of HSY 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 16, 2004 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased HSY 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 Hershey Company's total market capitalization.

Will Hershey Company Stock Split in 2024?

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