Nu Skin 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 Nu Skin 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 Nu Skin 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 Nu Skin 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.

Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Nu Skin'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 Nu Skin'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.

Nu Skin Implied Volatility

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