Loop Industries 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 Loop Industries or Basic Materials 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 Loop Industries 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 Loop Industries 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.

Loop Industries Volatility Alert

Loop Industries shows above-average downside volatility for the selected time horizon. We advise investors to inspect Loop Industries further and ensure that all market timing and asset allocation strategies are consistent with the estimation of Loop Industries future alpha. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Loop Industries' stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Loop Industries' 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.

Loop Industries Implied Volatility

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

The market value of Loop Industries is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Loop Industries that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Loop Industries' value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Loop Industries' true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value.
