Have Qantas Airways's shares ever split?

Qantas Airways's shares were split on 26 October 2015. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Qantas Airways shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Qantas Airways shares which in turn could have impacted Qantas Airways's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Qantas Airways's shares have ranged in value from as little as A$3.12 up to A$5.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

QAN.AU volatility(beta: 1.29)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Qantas Airways's is 1.2944. This would suggest that Qantas Airways's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
