The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into CalAmp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CalAmp share dividends

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

Have CalAmp's shares ever split?

CalAmp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 March 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CalAmp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CalAmp shares which in turn could have impacted CalAmp's share price.

CalAmp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CalAmp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.15 up to $14.51. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CAMP.US volatility(beta: 2.39)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 CalAmp's is 2.3933. This would suggest that CalAmp's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
