Alpha HPA share dividends

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

Have Alpha HPA's shares ever split?

Alpha HPA's shares were split on a 33:32 basis on 12 July 2018. So if you had owned 32 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 33 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alpha HPA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alpha HPA shares which in turn could have impacted Alpha HPA's share price.

Alpha HPA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alpha HPA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.645 up to $1.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

A4N.AU volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Alpha HPA's is 1.237. This would suggest that Alpha HPA's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
