Have Toll Brothers's shares ever split?

Toll Brothers's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 July 2005. 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 Toll Brothers shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Toll Brothers shares which in turn could have impacted Toll Brothers's share price.

Toll Brothers share price volatility
