Opthea share dividends

We're not expecting Opthea to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Opthea's shares ever split?

Opthea's shares were split on a 5:8 basis on 14 October 2020. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Opthea shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Opthea shares which in turn could have impacted Opthea's share price.

Opthea share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Opthea's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.07 up to $12.9999. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Opthea's is -0.1471. This would suggest that Opthea's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Opthea has bucked the trend.

To put Opthea's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
