Have Aggreko's shares ever split?

Aggreko's shares were split on a 9938:10000 basis on 28 May 2014. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9938 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aggreko shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aggreko shares which in turn could have impacted Aggreko's share price.

Aggreko share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aggreko's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4 up to $11.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
