Have USA Truck's shares ever split?

USA Truck's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 December 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for USA Truck shares which in turn could have impacted USA Truck's share price.

USA Truck share price volatility

This would suggest that USA Truck'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).
