Have Marathon Digital's shares ever split?

Marathon Digital's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 7 April 2019. So if you had owned 4 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 Marathon Digital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marathon Digital shares which in turn could have impacted Marathon Digital's share price.

Marathon Digital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marathon Digital's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$15.72 up to US$83.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
