US Bancorp 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 US Bancorp 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 US Bancorp 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 US Bancorp 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.

This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

US Bancorp Implied Volatility

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