Mastercard (MA) has 1 split in our Mastercard stock split history database. The split for MA took place on January 22, 2014. This was a 10 for 1 split, meaning for each share of MA owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 10 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 10000 share position following the split.
When a company such as Mastercard 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 Mastercard stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 10000 today.
