Split History
MSA split history picture
MSA Safety (MSA) has 2 splits in our MSA split history database. The first split for MSA took place on May 25, 2000. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of MSA owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 3000 share position following the split. MSA's second split took place on January 29, 2004. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of MSA owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 9000 share position following the split.

When a company such as MSA Safety 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 MSA split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9000 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into MSA Safety shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of MSA, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete MSA split history.
