Includes a Live Event on 12/16/2021 at 11:00 AM (EST)

Beta is a measure of a stock’s market risk and is used by both investors seeking an indication of an issue’s volatility relative to the overall stock market and by valuators ascertaining the Cost of Equity. While Betas tend to vary across companies and industries, in this webinar, we will focus primarily on the distinctions between Asset and Equity Betas. Afterwards, we will conclude with a brief demonstration on how Betas are calculated with Excel and used in determining the Cost of Equity under various models.
