Have Lydall's shares ever split?

Lydall's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 1995. 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 Lydall shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lydall shares which in turn could have impacted Lydall's share price.

Lydall share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lydall's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lydall's is 3.095. This would suggest that Lydall's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
