Southern Company (SO) Stock Split History

Southern Company has split its stock once since its initial public offering (IPO). The stock split of Southern Company occurred on March 01, 1994 on a 2-for-1 basis, meaning that for 1 share of SO owned pre-split, shareholders then owned 2 shares.

This action has increased the 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 changes the number of shares and the price per share with no impact on Southern Company's total market capitalization.

Will Southern Company Stock Split in 2024?

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