InTest 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 InTest or Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment 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 InTest'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 InTest 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.

InTest Volatility Alert

InTest exhibits very low volatility with skewness of 0.0 and kurtosis of 1.66. However, we advise investors to further study InTest 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 InTest'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 InTest'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.

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