Independent 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 Independent or Financial 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 Independent stock'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 Independent 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.

Independent Volatility Alert

Independent Bk Corp has relatively low volatility with skewness of 0.28 and kurtosis of -0.37. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Independent Bk Corp to ensure all accessible information is consistent with the expectations about its upside potential and future expected returns. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Independent's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Independent'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.

Is Independent's industry expected to grow? Or is there an opportunity to expand the business' product line in the future? Factors like these will boost the valuation of Independent. If investors know Independent will grow in the future, the company's valuation will be higher. The financial industry is built on trying to define current growth potential and future valuation accurately. All the valuation information about Independent listed above have to be considered, but the key to understanding future value is determining which factors weigh more heavily than others.
The market value of Independent Bk Corp is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Independent that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Independent's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Independent'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 Independent's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Independent'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 Independent's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Independent value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Independent'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.
