Origin Agritech share dividends

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

Have Origin Agritech's shares ever split?

Origin Agritech's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 July 2018. So if you had owned 10 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 Origin Agritech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Origin Agritech shares which in turn could have impacted Origin Agritech's share price.

Origin Agritech share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Origin Agritech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.21 up to $12.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SEED.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 Origin Agritech's is 1.0695. This would suggest that Origin Agritech'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).
