Lithium Americas share dividends

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

Have Lithium Americas's shares ever split?

Lithium Americas's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 7 November 2017. So if you had owned 5 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 Lithium Americas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lithium Americas shares which in turn could have impacted Lithium Americas's share price.

Lithium Americas share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lithium Americas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.49 up to $12.38. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LAC.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lithium Americas's is 1.5435. This would suggest that Lithium Americas's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
