Have Geron Corporation's shares ever split?
Geron Corporation's shares were split on a 1058:1000 basis on 21 July 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1058 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Geron Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Geron Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Geron Corporation's share price.
Geron Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Geron Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.9904 up to $2.355. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
