Alphatec share dividends

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

Have Alphatec's shares ever split?

Alphatec's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 24 August 2016. So if you had owned 12 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 Alphatec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alphatec shares which in turn could have impacted Alphatec's share price.

Alphatec share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alphatec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.31 up to $19.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ATEC.US volatility(beta: 1.69)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 Alphatec's is 1.6929. This would suggest that Alphatec's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
