GigaMedia share dividends

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

Have GigaMedia's shares ever split?

GigaMedia's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 15 December 2015. So if you had owned 5 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 GigaMedia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for GigaMedia shares which in turn could have impacted GigaMedia's share price.

GigaMedia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GigaMedia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.75 up to $5.56. 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 GigaMedia's is 0.151. This would suggest that GigaMedia's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
