ALR split history picture
Alere (ALR) has 1 split in our ALR split history database. The split for ALR took place on October 08, 1992. This was a 105 for 100 split, meaning for each 100 shares of ALR owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 105 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1050 share position following the split.

When a company such as Alere splits its shares, the market capitalization before and after the split takes place remains stable, meaning the shareholder now owns more shares but each are valued at a lower price per share. Often, however, a lower priced stock on a per-share basis can attract a wider range of buyers. If that increased demand causes the share price to appreciate, then the total market capitalization rises post-split. This does not always happen, however, often depending on the underlying fundamentals of the business. Looking at the ALR split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1050 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Alere shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of ALR, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete ALR split history.
