Johnson Johnson 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 Johnson Johnson or Healthcare 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 Johnson Johnson 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 Johnson 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.

Johnson Johnson Volatility Alert

Johnson Johnson has low volatility with Treynor Ratio of 0.14, Maximum Drawdown of 5.06 and kurtosis of -0.22. However, we advice all investors to further analyze Johnson Johnson to make certain all market information is desiminated and is consistent with the current expectations about Johnson Johnson upside potential. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Johnson Johnson'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 Johnson Johnson'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.

Johnson Johnson Implied Volatility

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

Investors also form their own opinion of Johnson Johnson's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Johnson Johnson'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.
