Please note that although Walmart alpha is a measure of relative return and represented here as a single number, it indicates the percentage above or below your selected benchmark (i.e., DOW index.) So in this particular case, Walmart did 0.13  better than the index. Remember, a high alpha is always good. Beta, on the other hand, measures the volatility (or risk) of an investment. It is an indication of Walmart stock's relative risk over its benchmark. Walmart has a beta of 0.77  . Let's try to break down what Walmart's beta means in this case. As returns on the market increase, Walmart returns are expected to increase less than the market. However, during the bear market, the loss on holding Walmart will be expected to be smaller as well.
.
Alpha is a measure of relative performance on a risk-adjusted basis, while beta measures volatility against the benchmark. The goal is to know if an investor is being compensated for the volatility risk taken. The return on investment might be better than its reference but still not compensate for the assumption of the risk.

Walmart Market Premiums

Investors always prefer to have the highest possible return on investment, coupled with the lowest possible volatility. Walmart market risk premium is the additional return an investor will receive from holding Walmart long position in a well-diversified portfolio. The market premium is part of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which most analysts and investors use to calculate the acceptable rate of return on investment in Walmart. At the center of the CAPM is the concept of risk and reward, which is usually communicated by investors using alpha and beta measures. Alpha and beta are two of the key measurements used to evaluate Walmart's performance over market.
