Stock split/dividend

If a stock split/dividend is applied to all shares outstanding prior to the split/dividend and to the beginning-of-period weighted average shares, does that mean it affects the first period directly after the split/dividend and no others after that point?

Correct.It affects the complete period before the split/stock dividend; after it, it doesn’t change the structure of the weighted average of shares outstanding
