Agilent Technologies (A) has 1 split in our A split history database. The split for A took place on November 03, 2014. This was a 1398 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of A owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1398 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1398 share position following the split.
When a company such as Agilent Technologies 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 A split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1398 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Agilent Technologies shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of A, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete A split history.
