1 for 17 stock split

Here we will explain what a 1 for 17 stock split means and show you an example of a 1 for 17 stock split. In addition, we will also provide you with a 1 for 17 stock split calculator.

A 1 for 17 stock split or 1:17 stock split ratio can be converted into a 1/17 fraction. Since a 1/17 fraction is less than 1, it means that a 1 for 17 stock split decreases the number of shares of a company. This is called a reverse stock split.

More specifically, a 1 for 17 stock split means that you get 1 stock for every 17 stocks you own. In other words, every 17 shares is replaced by 1 share. Therefore, the number of shares owned by each shareholder will decrease by about 94.12 percent.

To calculate how many shares you get after a 1 for 17 stock split, you multiply the stock ratio of 1/17 by the number of shares you currently own.

For example, let's say that a company announced a 1 for 17 stock split, and you happen to own 1000 shares in this company. The following equation calculates how many shares you would get after the stock split:

(1/17) × 1000 ≈ 58.824

You now have 58.824 shares instead of 1000 shares. Note that only the number of shares you have in the company changed, not the market value of the company. Therefore, the market price for each share probably went up proportionally.

To estimate the price of each share after the split, you divide the total market value of your shares prior to the split by how many shares you have after the split. Here is the math, assuming that the price per share was \$10 before the split:

(1000 × \$10) ÷ 58.824 ≈ \$170.00

Note: In scenarios where the number of new shares is not a whole number, you may receive monetary compensation instead of a fractional share.
