Sohu Inc 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 Sohu Inc or Communication Services 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 Sohu Inc'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 Sohu Inc 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.

Sohu Inc Volatility Alert

Sohu Inc ADR currently demonstrates below-average downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.09 and Jensen Alpha of 0.28. However, we advise investors to further question Sohu Inc ADR expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Sohu Inc'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 Sohu Inc'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.

Sohu Inc Implied Volatility

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