Have Lexaria Bioscience's shares ever split?

Lexaria Bioscience's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 11 January 2021. So if you had owned 30 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 Lexaria Bioscience shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lexaria Bioscience shares which in turn could have impacted Lexaria Bioscience's share price.

Lexaria Bioscience share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lexaria Bioscience's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.779 up to $12.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LEXX.US volatility(beta: 1.82)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 Lexaria Bioscience's is 1.8155. This would suggest that Lexaria Bioscience's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
