Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to American Mutual or American Funds 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.

Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.
