WestRock (WRK) has 1 split in our WestRock stock split history database. The split for WRK took place on May 16, 2016. This was a 11099 for 10000 split, meaning for each 10000 shares of WRK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 11099 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1109.9 share position following the split.
When a company such as WestRock 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 WestRock stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 1109.9 today.
