West Bancorporation (WTBA) has 2 splits in our WTBA split history database. The first split for WTBA took place on May 04, 1999. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of WTBA 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. WTBA's second split took place on July 22, 2004.

For example, a 1500 share position pre-split, became a 1575 share position following the split.
When a company such as West Bancorporation 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 WTBA split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1575 today.
