Aerojet Rocketdyne 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 Aerojet Rocketdyne or Industrials 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 Aerojet Rocketdyne stock'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 Aerojet 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.

Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Aerojet Rocketdyne's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Aerojet Rocketdyne's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet.

Aerojet Rocketdyne Implied Volatility
