Lamb Weston 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 Lamb Weston or Consumer Defensive 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.

So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a Lamb Weston stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction.
