[b]What is Beta Value of Stocks?

Beta value is a measure of a stock’s volatility with respect to market volatility. It is a popular indicator used by many traders and investors to facilitate their trades.
The market volatility is taken as 1, and beta values of a stock are calculated as a measure of how much the stock price moved from this market volatility.

Beta value of a stock can take one of the following forms.

  1. Negative Beta – This is a rarity, and means the stock is moving just reverse to the market.
  2. Zero (0) Beta – This means the value of the stock stays same irrespective of market movement. Again a rarity.
  3. Beta
    between 0 and 1 – This means the stock price swing less compared to
    market movements. Many blue chip company stocks and high-liquidity
    stocks have beta less than one. In a long-term prospective these stocks
    fall under low-risk low-profit category.
  4. Beta of 1 – This means
    the stock price moves in the same relation with the market. This can be
    the case with many index-related products.
  5. Beta greater than 1 –
    This means the stock price swings more compared to market movements.
    Many growing companies and technology companies have beta greater than
    one. Most of these stocks fall under high-return high-risk category.
    Also remember, beta at very high levels probably indicates high price
    volatility because of low-liquidity.

In fact, to calculate a stock's beta you only need two sets of data:

* Closing stock prices for the stock you're examining.
* Closing prices for the index you're choosing as a proxy for the stock market.

Most of the time beta values are calculated using the month-end stock
price for the security you're examining and the month end closing price
of the S&P 500 Index (or whatever index the stock is traded in).

The formula for the beta can be written as:

Beta = Covariance (stock versus market returns) / Variance of the Stock Market

For more details pls follow thw sriranga's post , further you can find more details from following links too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_%28finance%29
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LiK-qbmPsw - this is great

To find out the beta value as at 31/03/2011 pls go to the cse.lk, equity market page
