Coherent share dividends

Have Coherent's shares ever split?
Coherent's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 March 1998. 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 Coherent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coherent shares which in turn could have impacted Coherent's share price.
Coherent share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Coherent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $189.43 up to $270.99. 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 Coherent's is 1.4546. This would suggest that Coherent's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
