FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

How Does a Host Hotels and Resorts Share Split Work?

A Host Hotels and Resorts stock split is no different than any other stock split. Host Hotels and Resorts is simply packaging the number of outstanding shares in a different way. For example, in a 2-for-1 split, the amount of shares will double (and the price will be divided by 2, accordingly). Say you have 100 shares of Host Hotels and Resorts, then the day of the split you will receive 2 shares for every 1 share you hold in your brokerage account, meaning you will receive 200 shares on the stock split date. However, the price of the stock will reflect this change and your holding of Host Hotels and Resorts (in terms of value) will remain practically the same.

Benefits of a Host Hotels and Resorts Stock Split?

A stock split does not change the fundamental value of a company. Meaning a Host Hotels and Resorts stock split will not make the business more valuable. However, there is a psychological benefit in that the share price will be lower after the split, making shares seem more accessible to everyone and thus temporarily increasing demand and ramping up share prices.

How Does a Stock Split Affect $HST Options?

A stock split affects options the same way it affect shares. In the case of a 2-for-1, the strike price of all the options chain post-split will be divided by 2 automatically. So if you're holding CALLs or PUTs, the strike price of the $HST option will be automatically changed on the day of the split. Also, the number of shares will double. So if you have a CALL in a 2-for-1, after split you will have 2 calls to control 200 shares, and the strike price of those two CALLs would be halved.
