In Stanley Black-and-Decker's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.

Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 June 1996. 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 Stanley Black-and-Decker shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stanley Black-and-Decker shares which in turn could have impacted Stanley Black-and-Decker's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70 up to $180.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
