Have Herbalife Nutrition's shares ever split?

Herbalife Nutrition's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Herbalife Nutrition shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herbalife Nutrition shares which in turn could have impacted Herbalife Nutrition's share price.

Herbalife Nutrition share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Herbalife Nutrition's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.04 up to $44.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
