CHK split history picture
Chesapeake Energy (CHK) has 5 splits in our CHK split history database. The first split for CHK took place on December 19, 1994. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of CHK 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. CHK's second split took place on December 29, 1995. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of CHK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 3000 share position following the split. CHK's third split took place on July 01, 1996. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of CHK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 4500 share position following the split. CHK's 4th split took place on January 02, 1997. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of CHK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 4500 share position pre-split, became a 9000 share position following the split. CHK's 5th split took place on July 01, 2014. This was a 1057 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of CHK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1057 shares. For example, a 9000 share position pre-split, became a 9513 share position following the split.

When a company such as Chesapeake Energy 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 CHK split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9513 today.
