American Water Works (AWK) has 3 splits in our American Water Works stock split history database. The first split for AWK took place on March 04, 1985. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of AWK 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. AWK's second split took place on May 29, 1987.

For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 8000 share position following the split.

When a company such as American Water Works 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 American Water Works stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 8000 today.
