For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. BLC's second split took place on June 12, 1995.

For example, a 8000 share position pre-split, became a 9865.58145270687 share position following the split.

When a company such as BLC 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 BLC stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9865.58145270687 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into BLC shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of BLC, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete BLC stock split history.
