Have Zip Co's shares ever split?
Zip Co's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 29 July 2015. 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 Zip Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zip Co shares which in turn could have impacted Zip Co's share price.
Zip Co share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Zip Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.02 up to $14.53. 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 Zip Co's is 2.5025. This would suggest that Zip Co's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
