Have First Au 's shares ever split?
First Au 's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 20 November 2003. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Au shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Au shares which in turn could have impacted First Au 's share price.
First Au share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, First Au 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.004 up to $0.023. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while First Au 's is 1.0407. This would suggest that First Au '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).
