Have Lithium Americas's shares ever split?
Lithium Americas's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 7 November 2017. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lithium Americas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lithium Americas shares which in turn could have impacted Lithium Americas's share price.
