Have Echo Energy's shares ever split?

Echo Energy's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 23 May 2017. So if you had owned 25 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 Echo Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Echo Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Echo Energy's share price.

Echo Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Echo Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as 0.2p up to 2.5p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Echo Energy's is 3.6176. This would suggest that Echo Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
