Potential Upside In A Nutshell

First, a way to help determine upside potential would be to implement a price target. Now with a price target, there are many different ways to determine this number as there is no set way to calculate that number. Secondly, take a look at the technical analysis on the chart and see where the current support and resistance levels sit. Lastly, integrate the fundamental analysis and technical analysis to formulate your upside potential. There is no one set way to do this, but it is important to establish a realistic number to maybe take profit and move it into another asset because not all companies and products will increase for long periods of time. Diversification is a key aspect to any portfolio.

As simple as the title says, the potential upside is how much further you believe a stock or other asset is going to increase. There are many different ways to calculate this and decide on how much potential there is to the upside, so we will go over several. It may be easy to decide a company will grow and increase in stock value, but how much or how far is a little trickier.

When using potential upside, there will not be a set number to compare too, but you can gather what may experts and analysts are coming up with to gauge on whether you are in the ball park.
