A stock split is an issue of new stocks in a company to existing shareholders in proportion to their current holdings. For example, if an individual owns 100 shares of stock A at $20 per share and stock A undergoes a 2-for-1 stock split, the individual now owns 200 shares of Stock A at $10 per share. A company can split its stock as many times as it desires.

Companies usually undergo a stock split when their share prices rise to a level that is seen as too high in comparison to price levels of similar companies in the same sector. This keeps the price attractive to individual investors.
