What is a stock split?

A stock split is an action in which a company’s existing shares are divided into multiple shares. Stock splits often are performed to bring a company’s share price back to a more optimal range for individual investors to buy. In a two-for-one split (effected as a stock dividend), each holder of stock receives one additional share for each share he or she owns. For example, if you owned 100 shares of FCX stock prior to the stock split, you owned 200 shares of FCX stock after the stock split. Concurrently, the market should adjust the share price by half, resulting in similar absolute ownership values for common stockholders before and after the stock split.
