Have United Natural Foods's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your United Natural Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Natural Foods shares which in turn could have impacted United Natural Foods's share price.

United Natural Foods share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, United Natural Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.71 up to $47.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
