 Beta: A mathematical measure of a stock's risk in relation to the overall market (usually as measured by the Standard & Poor's 500 index). The Standard and Poor's 500 Stock Index has a beta coefficient of 1.0. A beta higher than 1.0 indicates that, on average, when the market rises, the stock will rise to a greater extent and when the market falls, the stock will fall to a greater extent. A beta lower than 1.0 indicates that, on average, the stock will move to a lesser extent than the market. The higher the beta, the greater the risk. High-beta stocks are great to own in a Bull Market, but not so fun to hold in a Bear Market.Is a quantitative measure of a security, basket, or funds behavior relative to the market or benchmark. This relationship typically represents the historic price movement of a specific security against the movement in the S&P 500. A beta of 1.35 would indicate that the security move 1.35 times the movement in the S&P or 35% greater variability. The S&P 500 is considered having a beta of 1.00. Betas less than 1.00 are considered less variable than the market, betas greater than 1.00 are considered more variable than the market and negative betas are considered as inversely related to the market.
