Clearfield share dividends

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

Have Clearfield's shares ever split?

Clearfield's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 1989. 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 Clearfield shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Clearfield shares which in turn could have impacted Clearfield's share price.

Clearfield share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Clearfield's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.91 up to $49.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLFD.US volatility(beta: 1.4)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 Clearfield's is 1.395. This would suggest that Clearfield's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
