WIRE split history picture
Encore Wire (WIRE) has 3 splits in our WIRE split history database. The first split for WIRE took place on August 19, 1997. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of WIRE 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. WIRE's second split took place on June 16, 1998. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of WIRE 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. WIRE's third split took place on August 17, 2004. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of WIRE owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 2250 share position pre-split, became a 3375 share position following the split.

When a company such as Encore Wire 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 WIRE split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 3375 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Encore Wire shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of WIRE, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete WIRE split history.
