CenterPoint Energy (CNP) has 1 split in our CenterPoint Energy stock split history database. The split for CNP took place on October 01, 2002. This was a 1000 for 843 split, meaning for each 843 shares of CNP owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1000 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1186.23962040332 share position following the split.

When a company such as CenterPoint Energy 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 CenterPoint Energy stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1186.23962040332 today.
