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

Have Summit Materials's shares ever split?

Summit Materials's shares were split on a 1017:1000 basis on 13 December 2022. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1017 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Summit Materials shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Summit Materials shares which in turn could have impacted Summit Materials's share price.

Summit Materials share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Summit Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.6224 up to $34.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUM.US volatility(beta: 1.43)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Summit Materials's is 1.4286. This would suggest that Summit Materials's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
