This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Federal Realty Investment Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Federal Realty Investment Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Federal Realty Investment Trust's share price.

Federal Realty Investment Trust share price volatility
