Have Assertio's shares ever split?

Assertio's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 17 May 2021. So if you had owned 4 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 Assertio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Assertio shares which in turn could have impacted Assertio's share price.

Assertio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Assertio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.85 up to $5.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Assertio's is 1.664. This would suggest that Assertio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
