Coca Cola 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 Coca Cola or Consumer Defensive 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 Coca Cola 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 Coca Cola 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.

Coca Cola Volatility Alert

Coca-Cola has relatively low volatility with skewness of -1.6 and kurtosis of 6.94. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Coca-Cola 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 Coca Cola'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 Coca Cola'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.

Coca Cola Implied Volatility

Coca Cola's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Coca-Cola stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Coca Cola'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 Coca Cola stock will not fluctuate a lot when Coca Cola's options are near their expiration.

Coca Cola Fundamentals Vs Peers

Comparing Coca Cola's fundamentals to the average values of its peers is one of the most widely used and accepted methods of equity analyses.

This way, we can detect undervalued stocks with similar characteristics as Coca Cola or determine the stocks which would be an excellent addition to an existing portfolio.

The market value of Coca-Cola is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Coca Cola that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Coca Cola's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Coca Cola'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 Coca Cola's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Coca Cola'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 Coca Cola's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Coca Cola value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Coca Cola'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.
