Alumina share dividends

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

Have Alumina's shares ever split?

Alumina's shares were split on a 1.1566:1 basis on 3 May 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.1566 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alumina shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alumina shares which in turn could have impacted Alumina's share price.

Alumina share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alumina's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.685 up to $1.905. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AWC.AU volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Alumina's is 1.227. This would suggest that Alumina'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).
