Disney 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 Disney 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 Disney'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 Disney 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.

Disney Volatility Alert

Walt Disney exhibits very low volatility with skewness of -0.09 and kurtosis of 2.07. However, we advise investors to further study Walt Disney technical indicators to ensure that all market info is available and is reliable. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Disney'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 Disney'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.

Disney Implied Volatility

Disney's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Walt Disney stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Disney'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 Disney stock will not fluctuate a lot when Disney's options are near their expiration.

Disney Fundamentals Vs Peers

Comparing Disney's fundamentals to the average values of its peers is one of the most widely used and accepted methods of equity analyses. It helps to analyze Disney's direct or indirect competition across all of the common fundamentals between Disney and the related equities. This way, we can detect undervalued stocks with similar characteristics as Disney or determine the stocks which would be an excellent addition to an existing portfolio. Peer analysis of Disney's fundamental indicators could also be used in its relative valuation, which is a method of valuing Disney by comparing valuation metrics with those of similar companies.

The market value of Walt Disney is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Disney that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Disney's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Disney'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 Disney's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Disney'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 Disney's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine if Disney is a good investment by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Disney'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.
