P A 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 P A or Industrials 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 P A 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 P A 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.

P A Volatility Alert

P A M shows above-average downside volatility for the selected time horizon. We advise investors to inspect P A M further and ensure that all market timing and asset allocation strategies are consistent with the estimation of P A future alpha. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure P A'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 P A'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.

P A Implied Volatility

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

P A Fundamentals Vs Peers

Comparing P A's fundamentals to the average values of its peers is one of the most widely used and accepted methods of equity analyses. It helps to analyze P A's direct or indirect competition across all of the common fundamentals between P A and the related equities.

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