Have Herbalife Nutrition's shares ever split?
Herbalife Nutrition's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Herbalife Nutrition shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herbalife Nutrition shares which in turn could have impacted Herbalife Nutrition's share price.
Herbalife Nutrition share price volatility
