Oceanfirst Financial 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 Oceanfirst Financial or Financial Services 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 Oceanfirst Financial 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 Oceanfirst 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.

Oceanfirst Financial Volatility Alert

Oceanfirst Financial Corp has relatively low volatility with skewness of -0.33 and kurtosis of 2.07. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Oceanfirst Financial Corp 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 Oceanfirst Financial'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 Oceanfirst Financial'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.

Oceanfirst Financial Implied Volatility

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