WAG (WAG) has 4 splits in our WAG split history database. The first split for WAG took place on February 04, 1991. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of WAG 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. WAG's second split took place on August 09, 1995. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of WAG 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. WAG's third split took place on August 11, 1997. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of WAG 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. WAG's 4th split took place on February 16, 1999. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of WAG owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 8000 share position pre-split, became a 16000 share position following the split.

When a company such as WAG 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 WAG split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 16000 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into WAG shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of WAG, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete WAG split history.
