Zip Co share dividends

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

Have Zip Co's shares ever split?

Zip Co's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 30 July 2015. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 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 $0.485 up to $9.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Zip Co's is 2.5751. This would suggest that Zip Co's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
