Have Ballard Power Systems's shares ever split?

Ballard Power Systems's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 June 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ballard Power Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ballard Power Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Ballard Power Systems's share price.

Ballard Power Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ballard Power Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.43 up to $12.57. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BLDP.US volatility(beta: 1.85)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 Ballard Power Systems's is 1.8546. This would suggest that Ballard Power Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
