MUR split history picture
Murphy Oil (MUR) has 3 splits in our MUR split history database. The first split for MUR took place on December 31, 2002. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of MUR owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. MUR's second split took place on June 06, 2005. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of MUR owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 4000 share position following the split. MUR's third split took place on September 03, 2013. This was a 1158 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of MUR owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1158 shares. For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 4632 share position following the split.

When a company such as Murphy Oil 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 MUR split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 4632 today.
