Have Hills 's shares ever split?
Hills 's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 25 November 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hills shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hills shares which in turn could have impacted Hills 's share price.
Hills share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hills 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.065 up to $0.165. 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 (AU average) beta is 1, while Hills 's is 1.0232. This would suggest that Hills '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).
