We're not expecting Proofpoint to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Proofpoint's shares have ranged in value from as little as $170.69 up to $175.99. 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 Proofpoint's is 1.1992. This would suggest that Proofpoint's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
