Amyris share dividends

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

Have Amyris's shares ever split?

Amyris's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 5 June 2017. So if you had owned 15 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Amyris shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amyris shares which in turn could have impacted Amyris's share price.

Amyris share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amyris's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.47 up to $15.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMRS.US volatility(beta: 1.36)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Amyris's is 1.3596. This would suggest that Amyris's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
