Have Robert Half International's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Robert Half International shares which in turn could have impacted Robert Half International's share price.
Robert Half International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Robert Half International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.612 up to $92.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
