Melbana Energy share dividends

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

Have Melbana Energy 's shares ever split?

Melbana Energy 's shares were split on a 0.9645:1 basis on 6 August 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 0.9645 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Melbana Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.7% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Melbana Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Melbana Energy 's share price.

Melbana Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Melbana Energy 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.043 up to $0.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAY.AU volatility(beta: 1.08)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 Melbana Energy 's is 1.079. This would suggest that Melbana Energy '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).
