RKT split history picture
RKT (RKT) has 2 splits in our RKT split history database. The first split for RKT took place on October 31, 1996. This was a 11 for 10 split, meaning for each 10 shares of RKT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 11 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1100 share position following the split. RKT's second split took place on August 28, 2014. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of RKT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 1100 share position pre-split, became a 2200 share position following the split.

When a company such as RKT 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 RKT split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 2200 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into RKT shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of RKT, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete RKT split history.
