MediciNova share dividends

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

Have MediciNova's shares ever split?

MediciNova's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 30 October 2006. So if you had owned 10 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 MediciNova shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MediciNova shares which in turn could have impacted MediciNova's share price.

MediciNova share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MediciNova's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.4 up to $10.81. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MNOV.US volatility(beta: 1.28)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 MediciNova's is 1.2813. This would suggest that MediciNova's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
