Have Swift Media 's shares ever split?
Swift Media 's shares were split on a 1:100 basis on 20 November 2011. So if you had owned 100 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 Swift Media shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Swift Media shares which in turn could have impacted Swift Media 's share price.
Swift Media share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Swift Media 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.011 up to $0.1375. 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 Swift Media 's is 1.9218. This would suggest that Swift Media 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
