Our projection for Analog Devices (NASDAQ:ADI) in September
This firm has a beta of 0.8154. Let's try to break down what Analog's beta means in this case. As the market goes up, the company is expected to outperform it. However, if the market returns are negative, Analog Devices will likely underperform. The beta indicator helps investors understand whether Analog Devices moves in the same direction as the rest of the market, and how volatile (i.e., risky) it is compared to the market (i.e., selected benchmark). In other words, if Analog deviates very little from the market, it does not add much risk to the portfolio, but it also doesn't increase the expected returns.

Nevertheless, trying to predict the stock market accurately is still an essential part of the overall investment decision process.
