Have BIO-Key International's shares ever split?

BIO-Key International's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 20 November 2020. So if you had owned 8 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 BIO-Key International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BIO-Key International shares which in turn could have impacted BIO-Key International's share price.

BIO-Key International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BIO-Key International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4631 up to $1.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKYI.US volatility(beta: 1.06)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 BIO-Key International's is 1.0588. This would suggest that BIO-Key International'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).
