Acacia Research 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 Acacia Research or Professional Services 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 Acacia Research'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 Acacia 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.

The market value of Acacia Research is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Acacia that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Acacia Research's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Acacia Research's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Acacia Research's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Acacia Research's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
