Morgan Stanley (MS) Stock Split History

Morgan Stanley has split its stock 4 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on February 28, 1989 with the ratio of 3-for-2, meaning that for 2 shares of MS owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 3 shares. 3 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on January 27, 2000 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased MS 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 Morgan Stanley's total market capitalization.

Will Morgan Stanley Stock Split in 2024?

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