Stem 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 Stem or Stem Inc 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 Stem 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 Stem 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.

Stem Volatility Alert

Stem Inc is displaying above-average volatility over the selected time horizon. Investors should scrutinize Stem Inc independently to ensure intended market timing strategies are aligned with expectations about Stem volatility. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Stem'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 Stem'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.

Stem Implied Volatility

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