Pfizer's institutional investor refers to the entity that pools money to purchase Pfizer's securities or originate loans.

Pfizer 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 Pfizer or Healthcare 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 Pfizer 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 Pfizer 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.

Pfizer Volatility Alert

Pfizer Inc exhibits very low volatility with skewness of 0.59 and kurtosis of -0.27. However, we advise investors to further study Pfizer Inc technical indicators to make sure all market info is available and is reliable. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Pfizer'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 Pfizer'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.

Pfizer Implied Volatility

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

Is Pfizer's industry expected to grow? Or is there an opportunity to expand the business' product line in the future? Factors like these will boost the valuation of Pfizer. If investors know Pfizer will grow in the future, the company's valuation will be higher. The financial industry is built on trying to define current growth potential and future valuation accurately. All the valuation information about Pfizer listed above have to be considered, but the key to understanding future value is determining which factors weigh more heavily than others.
The market value of Pfizer Inc is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Pfizer that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Pfizer's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Pfizer'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 Pfizer's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Pfizer'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 Pfizer's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Pfizer value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Pfizer'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.
