BCS split history picture
Barclays PLC (BCS) has 3 splits in our BCS split history database. The first split for BCS took place on June 08, 1990. This was a 7 for 5 split, meaning for each 5 shares of BCS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 7 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1400 share position following the split. BCS's second split took place on May 06, 2002. This was a 4 for 1 split, meaning for each share of BCS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 4 shares. For example, a 1400 share position pre-split, became a 5600 share position following the split. BCS's third split took place on September 19, 2013. This was a 1085 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of BCS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1085 shares. For example, a 5600 share position pre-split, became a 6076 share position following the split.

When a company such as Barclays PLC 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 BCS split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 6076 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Barclays PLC shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of BCS, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete BCS split history.
