MetLife (MET) has 1 split in our MetLife stock split history database. The split for MET took place on August 07, 2017. This was a 1122 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of MET owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1122 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1122 share position following the split.
When a company such as MetLife 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 MetLife stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1122 today.
