OReilly Automotive (ORLY) has 3 splits in our ORLY split history database. The first split for ORLY took place on September 02, 1997. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of ORLY 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. ORLY's second split took place on December 01, 1999. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of ORLY owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 4000 share position following the split. ORLY's third split took place on June 16, 2005.

For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 8000 share position following the split.
When a company such as OReilly Automotive 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 ORLY split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 8000 today.
