McDonald's Corp (MCD) Stock Split History

McDonald's Corp has split its stock 9 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on June 14, 1971 with the ratio of 3-for-2, meaning that for 2 shares of MCD owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 3 shares. 8 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on March 08, 1999 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased MCD 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 McDonald's Corp's total market capitalization.

Will McDonald's Corp Stock Split in 2024?

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