Abstract Although it has long been recognized that a stock split merely changes the packaging of an investor's claim to earnings, there is widespread belief in the financial community that the split confers some substantive benefits on stockholders. This paper describes an empirical investigation of the effect of split action on stock price. The split action was found to have an insignificant effect, even at a 10% level, on changes in market price over the 12 month period surrounding the split. Copyright
