We're not expecting IP Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. However, you can browse other dividend-paying shares in our guide.
IP Group's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 26 April 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IP Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IP Group shares which in turn could have impacted IP Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, IP Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 41.45p up to 113.2p. 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 IP Group's is 1.2283. This would suggest that IP Group'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).
