Have Ocean Power Technologies's shares ever split?
Ocean Power Technologies's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 11 March 2019. So if you had owned 20 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 Ocean Power Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ocean Power Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Ocean Power Technologies's share price.
Ocean Power Technologies share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ocean Power Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5 up to $2.76. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Ocean Power Technologies's is 1.8182. This would suggest that Ocean Power Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
