UIL (UIL) has 1 split in our UIL split history database. The split for UIL took place on July 05, 2006. This was a 5 for 3 split, meaning for each 3 shares of UIL owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 5 shares.

When a company such as UIL 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 UIL split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1666.66666666667 today.
