JCP split history picture
JCP (JCP) has 2 splits in our JCP split history database. The first split for JCP took place on May 01, 1987. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of JCP 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. JCP's second split took place on May 03, 1993. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of JCP owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 4000 share position following the split.

When a company such as JCP 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 JCP split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 4000 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into JCP shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of JCP, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete JCP split history.
