Credit Suisse 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 Credit Suisse or Capital Markets 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 Credit Suisse'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 Credit 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.

This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

The market value of Credit Suisse Group is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Credit that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Credit Suisse's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Credit Suisse'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 Credit Suisse's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Credit Suisse's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Credit Suisse's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Credit Suisse value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Credit Suisse'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.
