Ally Financial has high financial leverage indicating that it may have difficulties to generate enough cash to satisfy its financial obligations
The company currently holds 17.03 B in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 275.8, indicating the company may have difficulties to generate enough cash to satisfy its financial obligations.

Ally Financial 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 Ally Financial or Consumer Finance 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 Ally Financial'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 Ally Financial 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 Ally Financial is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Ally Financial that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Ally Financial's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Ally Financial'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.

Investors typically determine Ally Financial value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Ally Financial's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
