Black Knight 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 Black Knight or Technology 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 Black Knight 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 Black 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.

Black Knight Volatility Alert

Black Knight has relatively low volatility with skewness of 3.0 and kurtosis of 12.79. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Black Knight to ensure all accessible information is consistent with the expectations about its upside potential and future expected returns. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Black Knight'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 Black Knight's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Black Knight Implied Volatility

Black Knight's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Black Knight stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Black Knight's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that Black Knight stock will not fluctuate a lot when Black Knight's options are near their expiration.

Investors also form their own opinion of Black Knight's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Black Knight'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.
