BKS split history picture
Barnes and Noble (BKS) has 2 splits in our BKS split history database. The first split for BKS took place on September 23, 1997. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of BKS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. BKS's second split took place on August 03, 2015. This was a 1526 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of BKS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1526 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 3052 share position following the split.

When a company such as Barnes and Noble 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 BKS split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 3052 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Barnes and Noble shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of BKS, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete BKS split history.
