BRKB split history picture
BRKB (BRKB) has 1 split in our BRKB split history database. The split for BRKB took place on January 21, 2010. This was a 50 for 1 split, meaning for each share of BRKB owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 50 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 50000 share position following the split.

When a company such as BRKB 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 BRKB split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 50000 today.
