Have Lithium Australia NL's shares ever split?

Lithium Australia NL's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 26 April 2016. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lithium Australia NL shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lithium Australia NL shares which in turn could have impacted Lithium Australia NL's share price.

Lithium Australia NL share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lithium Australia NL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.032 up to $0.089. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LIT.AU volatility(beta: 1.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Lithium Australia NL's is 1.9661. This would suggest that Lithium Australia NL's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
