TerraCom share dividends

We're not expecting TerraCom to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have TerraCom 's shares ever split?

TerraCom 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 4 December 2017. So if you had owned 10 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 TerraCom shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TerraCom shares which in turn could have impacted TerraCom 's share price.

TerraCom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TerraCom 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.088 up to $0.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TER.AU volatility(beta: 0.88)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 TerraCom 's is 0.8793. This would suggest that TerraCom 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
