SAFM split history picture
Sanderson Farms (SAFM) has 2 splits in our SAFM split history database. The first split for SAFM took place on February 23, 1995. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of SAFM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1500 share position following the split. SAFM's second split took place on February 27, 2004. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of SAFM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1500 share position pre-split, became a 2250 share position following the split.

When a company such as Sanderson Farms 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 SAFM split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 2250 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Sanderson Farms shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of SAFM, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete SAFM split history.
