Have Forward Pharma A/S's shares ever split?
Forward Pharma A/S's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 5 December 2019. So if you had owned 7 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 Forward Pharma A/S shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Forward Pharma A/S shares which in turn could have impacted Forward Pharma A/S's share price.
Forward Pharma A/S share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Forward Pharma A/S's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.37 up to $20.31. 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 Forward Pharma A/S's is 1.6183. This would suggest that Forward Pharma A/S's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
