What Are Nasdaq Stock Splits?


As of 2015, Nasdaq lists information on upcoming stocks that perform stock splits such as 2-for-1 where a company cuts the price of each share in half and gives investors more shares, notes Motley Fool. Nasdaq also provides insight on which type of stock split occurs and the event date.

Nasdaq users can check if a stock is reverse splits or forward splits, explains Nasdaq. The forward split indicates that the company increases the price of each share and reduces the amount of shares the investor holds to compensate for the change, explains Motley Fool. Nasdaq also details when the announcement takes place and when it is payable.
