These parameters will no doubt help us to select the best companies but beta is one such parameter which can tell us about the returns with the volatility of a particular stock with respect to market. The concept of beta is actually very simple - it's a measure of individual stock risk relative to the overall stock market risk. Beta analysis can provide great insights into the movements of a particular stock relative to market movements Before investing in a company's stock, the beta analysis allows an investor to understand if the price of that security has been more or less volatile than the market itself.
