iShares Gold Trust (IAU) Stock Split History

iShares Gold Trust has split its stock 2 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on June 24, 2010 with the ratio of 10-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of IAU owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 10 shares. The most recent stock split took place on May 24, 2021 on a 1-for-2 basis.

These actions have increased IAU 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 iShares Gold Trust's total market capitalization.

Will iShares Gold Trust Stock Split in 2024?

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