AMC Entertainment Greeks

Most traded equities are subject to two types of risk - systematic (i.e., market) and unsystematic (i.e., nonmarket or company-specific) risk. Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to AMC Entertainment or Entertainment sector will adversely affect the stock's price. This type of risk can be diversified away by owning several different stocks in different industries whose stock prices have shown a small correlation to each other. On the other hand, systematic risk is the risk that AMC Entertainment's price will be affected by overall stock market movements and cannot be diversified away. So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a AMC Entertainment stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction. Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.

AMC Entertainment Volatility Alert

AMC Entertainment Holdings is displaying above-average volatility over the selected time horizon. Investors should scrutinize AMC Entertainment Holdings independently to ensure intended market timing strategies are aligned with expectations about AMC Entertainment volatility. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure AMC Entertainment's stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact AMC Entertainment's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

AMC Entertainment Implied Volatility

AMC Entertainment's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of AMC Entertainment Holdings stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if AMC Entertainment's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that AMC Entertainment stock will not fluctuate a lot when AMC Entertainment's options are near their expiration.

The market value of AMC Entertainment is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of AMC Entertainment that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of AMC Entertainment's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is AMC Entertainment's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because AMC Entertainment's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect AMC Entertainment's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between AMC Entertainment's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine AMC Entertainment value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, AMC Entertainment's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
