Juniper Networks 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 Juniper Networks or Communications 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 Juniper Networks' 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 Juniper 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.

Juniper Networks Volatility Alert

Juniper Networks has relatively low volatility with skewness of 1.06 and kurtosis of 3.55. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Juniper Networks 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 Juniper Networks' stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Juniper Networks' 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.

Juniper Networks Implied Volatility

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

Investors also form their own opinion of Juniper Networks' value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Juniper Networks' true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value.
