Berry is expecting lower volatility in December

The semi variance is down to 1.58 as of today. Berry Global Group has relatively low volatility with skewness of 0.01 and kurtosis of 1.09. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Berry Global Group to ensure all accessible information is consistent with the expectations about its upside potential and future expected returns. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Berry Global'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 Berry Global'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.

Berry Global Implied Volatility

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

Our Final Takeaway

While few other entities under the packaging & containers industry are still a bit expensive, Berry Global may offer a potential longer-term growth to investors. To conclude, as of the 18th of November 2021, we believe Berry Global is currently undervalued. It almost mirrors the market and projects below average probability of distress in the next two years. Our primary 90 days buy-hold-sell recommendation on the company is Buy.
