A beta is a measure of a particular stock's price volatility relative to the overall market. A beta value greater than one implies greater than average riskiness, while a beta value less than one implies lower than average riskiness.
S&P's NetAdvantage calculates betas for companies. Search by company name or ticker symbol, then look for the beta value on the Valuation screen in the Company Profile.
You can also use the Advanced Stock Screener function in NetAdvantage to identify companies based on their beta.
