Discovery Communications has just one split recorded. On August 07, 2014, they had their first split in the whole stock trading process. This was a 1957 for 1000 split. Which means for each 1000 shares of DISCA owned pre-splits the shareholder now owned 1957 shares. Moreover, a 1000 share for example, position pre-split, just went to a 1957 share position continuing the split.


The market capitalization before and after the split comes to a steady position which means that the shareholders are now has ownership of more shares but each are valued at a lower range of price per share. This is what happens when a company splits its shares. However, a stock that’s lower on price on a per-share basis can often attract a larger range of clients. If that adds demands then prices of share are expected to not to depreciate, then the overall market capitalization hikes up after the split happens. The thing is this does not happen all the time although sometimes depending on a surface of fundamentals of the business. As we look at the Discovery split history, a thousand of shares would have become 1957 today.
