This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Microchip Technology Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Microchip Technology Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Microchip Technology Incorporated's share price.
