WRK split history picture
WestRock (WRK) has 1 split in our WRK split history database. The split for WRK took place on May 16, 2016. This was a 11099 for 10000 split, meaning for each 10000 shares of WRK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 11099 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1109.9 share position following the split.

When a company such as WestRock 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 WRK split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1109.9 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into WestRock shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of WRK, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete WRK split history.
