It is the proportion of a stock's instability comparable to the general market. By definition, the market, for example, the S&P 500 Index, has a beta of 1.0, and individual stocks are positioned by the amount they digress from the market.


A stock that swings more than the market after some time has a beta above 1.0. In the event that a stock moves not exactly the market, the stock's beta is under 1.0.

 High-beta stocks should be more hazardous yet give better yield potential; low-beta stocks present less hazard yet additionally lower returns.




Beta is an idea that gauges the normal move in a stock comparative with developments in the general market.


A beta more noteworthy than 1.0 proposes that the stock is more unpredictable than the more extensive market, and a beta under 1.0 shows a stock with lower unpredictability.
