Lockheed Martin (LMT) has 3 splits in our Lockheed Martin stock split history database. The first split for LMT took place on September 09, 1983. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 3000 share position following the split. LMT's second split took place on March 16, 1995. This was a 163 for 100 split, meaning for each 100 shares of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 163 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 4890 share position following the split. LMT's third split took place on January 04, 1999. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 4890 share position pre-split, became a 9780 share position following the split.
When a company such as Lockheed Martin 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 Lockheed Martin stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9780 today.
