adidas share dividends
We're not expecting adidas to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have adidas's shares ever split?
adidas's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 6 June 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your adidas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for adidas shares which in turn could have impacted adidas's share price.
adidas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, adidas's shares have ranged in value from as little as EUR€114.5179 up to EUR€188.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (F average) beta is 1, while adidas's is 1.133. This would suggest that adidas's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
