Institutional investors include commercial and private banks, credit unions, insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds, endowments, and mutual funds.

Wayfair 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 Wayfair or Consumer Cyclical 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 Wayfair'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 Wayfair 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.

Wayfair Volatility Alert

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

Wayfair Implied Volatility

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

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