WBK split history picture
WBK (WBK) has 1 split in our WBK split history database. The split for WBK took place on August 19, 2013. This was a 5 for 1 split, meaning for each share of WBK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 5 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 5000 share position following the split.

When a company such as WBK 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 WBK split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 5000 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into WBK shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of WBK, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete WBK split history.
