Delta Air Lines (DAL) has 2 splits in our Delta Air Lines stock split history database. The first split for DAL took place on December 01, 1981. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of DAL owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. DAL's second split took place on November 17, 1998.

For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 4000 share position following the split.
When a company such as Delta Air Lines splits its shares, the market capitalization before and after the split takes place remains stable, meaning the shareholder now owns more shares but each are valued at a lower price per share. Often, however, a lower priced stock on a per-share basis can attract a wider range of buyers. If that increased demand causes the share price to appreciate, then the total market capitalization rises post-split. This does not always happen, however, often depending on the underlying fundamentals of the business.
