This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Howmet Aerospace Inc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Howmet Aerospace Inc shares which in turn could have impacted Howmet Aerospace Inc's share price.
