Have IOG's shares ever split?

IOG's shares were split on a 226:217 basis on 2 April 2019. So if you had owned 217 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 226 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IOG shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IOG shares which in turn could have impacted IOG's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IOG's shares have ranged in value from as little as 15p up to 38.5p. 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 IOG's is 0.2699. This would suggest that IOG's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

To put IOG's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
