Low Volatility Stocks

It can seem counterintuitive to many investors, but stocks that are less volatile than their counterparts have historically produced comparable or better returns. This means that on a risk-adjusted basis, low volatility stocks have been superior investments. We measure low volatility in two ways. The standard deviation measures the volatility of each stocks on a standalone basis. Beta also accounts for a stock’s correlation with other stocks. The combined score uses both metrics.
