NSC split history picture
Norfolk Southern (NSC) has 2 splits in our NSC split history database. The first split for NSC took place on April 07, 1987. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of NSC 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. NSC's second split took place on October 10, 1997. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of NSC owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 9000 share position following the split.

When a company such as Norfolk Southern 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 NSC split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9000 today.
