Stock Split History
Dow stock split history picture
Dow (DOW) has 5 splits in our Dow stock split history database. The first split for DOW took place on November 21, 1989. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of DOW owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1500 share position following the split. DOW's second split took place on June 19, 2000. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of DOW owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1500 share position pre-split, became a 4500 share position following the split. DOW's third split took place on August 06, 1971. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of DOW owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 4500 share position pre-split, became a 6750 share position following the split. DOW's 4th split took place on May 10, 1973. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of DOW owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 6750 share position pre-split, became a 13500 share position following the split. DOW's 5th split took place on June 08, 1976. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of DOW owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 13500 share position pre-split, became a 27000 share position following the split.

When a company such as Dow 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.

Looking at the Dow stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 27000 today.
