Freds (FRED) has 4 splits in our FRED split history database. The first split for FRED took place on December 22, 1997. This was a 5 for 4 split, meaning for each 4 shares of FRED owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 5 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1250 share position following the split. FRED's second split took place on June 19, 2001. This was a 5 for 4 split, meaning for each 4 shares of FRED owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 5 shares. For example, a 1250 share position pre-split, became a 1562.5 share position following the split. FRED's third split took place on February 04, 2002. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of FRED owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1562.5 share position pre-split, became a 2343.75 share position following the split. FRED's 4th split took place on July 02, 2003. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of FRED owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 2343.75 share position pre-split, became a 3515.625 share position following the split.

When a company such as Freds 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 FRED split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 3515.625 today.
