Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Stock Split History

Microsoft Corporation has split its stock 9 times since its initial public offering (IPO). The first stock split occurred on September 21, 1987 with the ratio of 2-for-1, meaning that for 1 share of MSFT owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 2 shares. 8 more splits have been implemented since then. The most recent stock split took place on February 18, 2003 on a 2-for-1 basis.

These splits have increased MSFT 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 Microsoft Corporation's total market capitalization.

Will Microsoft Corporation Stock Split in 2024?

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