Alphabet 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 Alphabet or Interactive Media & Services 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 Alphabet'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 Alphabet 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.

Alphabet Volatility Alert

Alphabet Inc Class A has relatively low volatility with skewness of 1.69 and kurtosis of 9.11. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Alphabet'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 Alphabet'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 financial instruments as prices fall.

Alphabet Implied Volatility

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

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