This advanced stock beta calculator will calculate the beta of a company in accordance with the share market. The tool considers the regression model to compare the return of the firm and market for the same duration of time.

## What Is Beta?

In finance:

“Beta is regarded as the comparison between the market index and the historical volatility of a company”

Basically, calculating the beta of a stock helps finance experts to estimate the return for a certain risk they will take.

• If beta > 1.0, it means that the stock has more worth than the market
• If beta < 1.0, it indicates that the stock value is far less than that of the market

## How To Calculate Equity Beta of a Stock?

A company has invested certain shares in a business for which the stats for both the company and the market are as follows:

Company’s Return = 2, 1, 4, 25, 4, 4

Market’s Return = 2, 7, 6, 8, 2, 7

Calculate beta to estimate whether the stock’s price goes higher or lower than the market.

### Solution:

As we have the in the following table:

 Obs. rM rS 1 2 2 2 7 1 3 6 4 4 8 25 5 2 4 6 7 4

Now we will calculate the regression coefficient.

 Obs. rM rS Xᵢ² Yᵢ² Xᵢ · Yᵢ 1 2 2 4 4 4 2 7 1 49 1 7 3 6 4 36 16 24 4 8 25 64 625 200 5 2 4 4 16 8 6 7 4 49 16 28 Sum = 32 40 206 678 271

$$SS_{XX} = \sum^n_{i=1}X_i^2 – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i=1}X_i \right)^2$$

$$= 206 – \dfrac{1}{6} (32)^2$$

$$= 35.333$$

$$SS_{YY} = \sum^n_{i=1}Y_i^2 – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i=1}Y_i \right)^2$$

$$= 678 – \dfrac{1}{6} (40)^2$$

$$= 411.33$$

$$SS_{XY} = \sum^n_{i=1}X_iY_i – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i=1}X_i \right) \left(\sum^n_{i=1}Y_i \right)$$

$$= 271 – \dfrac{1}{6} (32) (40)$$

$$= 57.667$$

$$\hat{\beta}_1 = \dfrac{SS_{XY}}{SS_{XX}}$$

$$= \dfrac{57.667}{35.333}$$

$$= 1.632$$

As the beta value is greater than 1.0, it means that the stock value is higher than the market index.

## Faqs:

### Can Beta Be Negative?

A negative beta value shows a clear distinction with respect to the market value of an index. But it rarely happens.
