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

Have Aptose Biosciences's shares ever split?

Aptose Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 5 October 2014. 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 Aptose Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aptose Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Aptose Biosciences's share price.

Aptose Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aptose Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.08 up to $7.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APTO.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Aptose Biosciences's is 1.117. This would suggest that Aptose Biosciences'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).
