For example, an investor can purchase Visa stock that has halved in price over a short period. This will lower your average cost per share, thereby improving your portfolio's performance when the markets normalize. Similarly, when the prices of Visa's stock rises, investors can sell out and invest the proceeds in other equities with better opportunities. Investing when markets are volatile with better valuations will accord both investors and companies the opportunity to generate better long-term returns.

Visa Market Sensitivity And Downside Risk

Visa's beta coefficient measures the volatility of Visa stock compared to the systematic risk of the entire stock market represented by your selected benchmark. In mathematical terms, beta represents the slope of the line through a regression of data points where each of these points represents Visa stock's returns against your selected market. In other words, Visa's beta of 1.14 provides an investor with an approximation of how much risk Visa stock can potentially add to one of your existing portfolios.
Visa Inc has relatively low volatility with skewness of 0.01 and kurtosis of 0.18. However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Visa Inc 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 Visa'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 Visa'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.

Visa Implied Volatility

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

It is essential to understand the difference between upside risk (as represented by Visa's standard deviation) and the downside risk, which can be measured by semi-deviation or downside deviation of Visa stock's daily returns or price. Since the actual investment returns on holding a position in Visa stock tend to have a non-normal distribution, there will be different probabilities for losses than for gains. The likelihood of losses is reflected in the downside risk of an investment in Visa.

The put buyer has a limited loss and, while not fully unlimited gains, as the price of Visa Stock cannot fall below zero, the put buyer does gain as the price drops.

If an undesired outcome occurs and loss on holding Visa will be realized, the loss incurred will be offset by the profits made with the option trade.

What Drives a Company's Stock Price Volatility?

Several factors can influence a company's stock volatility:

Industry

Specific events can influence volatility within a particular industry. For instance, a significant weather upheaval in a crucial oil-production site may cause oil prices to increase in the oil sector. The direct result will be the rise in the stock price of oil distribution companies. Similarly, any government regulation in a specific industry could negatively influence stock prices due to increased regulations on compliance that may impact the company's future earnings and growth.

Political and Economic environment

When governments make significant decisions regarding trade agreements, policies, and legislation regarding specific industries, they will influence stock prices. Everything from speeches to elections may influence investors, who can directly influence the stock prices in any particular industry. The prevailing economic situation also plays a significant role in stock prices. When the economy is doing well, investors will have a positive reaction and hence, better stock prices and vice versa.

The Company's Performance

Sometimes volatility will only affect an individual company. For example, a revolutionary product launch or strong earnings report may attract many investors to purchase the company. This positive attention will raise the company's stock price. In contrast, product recalls and data breaches may negatively influence a company's stock prices.

The effect of pair diversification on risk is to reduce it, but we should note this doesn't apply to all risk types. When we trade pairs against Visa as a counterpart, there is always some inherent risk that will never be diversified away no matter what. This volatility limits the effect of tactical diversification using pair trading. Visa's systematic risk is the inherent uncertainty of the entire market, and therefore cannot be mitigated even by pair-trading it against the equity that is not highly correlated to it. On the other hand, Visa's unsystematic risk describes the types of risk that we can protect against, at least to some degree, by selecting a matching pair that is not perfectly correlated to Visa Inc.

Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value.
