For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. KMB's second split took place on January 03, 1992. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of KMB owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares.

This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of KMB owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 8000 share position following the split. KMB's 4th split took place on November 03, 2014. This was a 1043 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of KMB owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1043 shares. For example, a 8000 share position pre-split, became a 8344 share position following the split.

When a company such as Kimberly-Clark 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 KMB split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 8344 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Kimberly-Clark shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of KMB, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete KMB split history.
