Microsoft MSFT Stock Price on October 19, 1987 After the 1987 Stock Market Crash

When Microsoft (Stock Symbol: MSFT) went public and launched its initial public offering (IPO) in 1986, the opening stock price was $21.00 per share after the trading day, the price closed at $27.75 per share. As of July 2010, with the company’s nine stock splits, any IPO shares would be multiplied by 288 and if one was to buy the IPO today given the splits and other factors, it would cost about 9 cents per share.
