Have Focus Minerals 's shares ever split?
Focus Minerals 's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 18 May 2015. So if you had owned 50 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Focus Minerals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Focus Minerals shares which in turn could have impacted Focus Minerals 's share price.
Focus Minerals share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Focus Minerals 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.145 up to $0.5. 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 Focus Minerals 's is 1.4661. This would suggest that Focus Minerals 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
