Daily List of Low Beta Stocks
A stock’s beta measures how volatile it is compared to the overall market.
The overall market has a beta of 1.0.A stock’s beta is ranked according to how much the stock price deviates from the overall market. If a stock’s beta is:
- Higher than one: The stock price typically experiences larger price fluctuations than the overall market.
- Less than one: The stock price typically experiences lower price fluctuations than the overall market.
- Equal to one: The stock price typically fluctuations at the same rate as the overall market.
Stocks with a high beta value are viewed as riskier than stocks with low beta values.
Beta is also a key input into the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which is used to calculate a company’s cost of equity. Cost of equity is used in the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) model to determine the discount rate used to present value a company’s future cash flows.
A stock’s beta can be a helpful metric to determine share price variability and risk.
