Volatility is a rate at which the price of Apple or any other equity instrument increases or decreases for a given set of returns. It is measured by calculating the standard deviation of the annualized returns over a given period of time and shows the range to which the price of Apple may increase or decrease. In other words, similar to Apple's beta indicator, it measures the risk of Apple and helps estimate the fluctuations that may happen in a short period of time. So if prices of Apple fluctuate rapidly in a short time span, it is termed to have high volatility, and if it swings slowly in a more extended period, it is understood to have low volatility.

How important is Apple's Liquidity

Apple financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Apple Inc ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Apple financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Apple's total debt and its cash.

Apple Volatility Drivers

Apple unsystematic risk is unique to Apple Inc and usually not directly affected by the market or economic environment. An example of unsystematic risk is the possibility of poor earnings or a layoff due to coronavirus. One may mitigate nonsystematic risk by buying different securities in the same industry or by buying in different sectors. For example, if you have a position in Apple you can also buy Hp Inc. You can also mitigate this risk by investing in the consumer electronics sector as well as in companies having nothing to do with it.
