That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.37% of the current stock value.

Have Teleflex Incorporated's shares ever split?
Teleflex Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 June 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Teleflex Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teleflex Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Teleflex Incorporated's share price.
Teleflex Incorporated share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Teleflex Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $311.2106 up to $448.557. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Teleflex Incorporated's is 1.172. This would suggest that Teleflex Incorporated'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).
