This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks which in turn could have impacted Stanley Black-and-Decker's stock price.
Stanley Black-and-Decker stock price volatility
