When a company such as McDonalds 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 McDonalds stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 121500 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into McDonalds shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of MCD, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete McDonalds stock split history.
