It appears without question that Ball may not recover as fast as we have hopped for as its price went down 0.8% today. The company's current daily volatility is 1.94 percent, with a beta of 0.72 and an alpha of 0.05 over DOW. While many traders are getting carried away by overanalyzing market volatility, it is reasonable to summarize Ball Corporation based on how it reacts to the new economic swings. Why are we still confident in our projection for a recovery.
