Teradata Corp Trading Alerts and Improvement Suggestions

The company has 561 M in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 2.37, meaning that the company heavily relies on borrowing funds for operations. Teradata Corp has a current ratio of 0.85, suggesting that it has not enough short term capital to pay financial commitments when the payables are due. Debt can assist Teradata Corp until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Teradata Corp's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Teradata Corp sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Teradata to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Teradata Corp's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

Teradata Corp 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 Teradata Corp or Technology 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 Teradata Corp'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 Teradata 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.

Teradata Corp Volatility Alert

Teradata Corp currently demonstrates below-average downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of -0.03 and Jensen Alpha of -0.09. However, we advise investors to further question Teradata Corp expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Teradata Corp's stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Teradata Corp'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.

Teradata Corp Implied Volatility

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