Most sudden stock spikes or drops require the attention of anyone who is keeping a keen eye on the shares. Investors look at the Volatility 12m to determine if a company has a low volatility percentage or not over the course of a year. Even if the individual investor chooses to trade conservatively during earnings, they can still do the necessary research and have stocks lined up to purchase when the time is right. The 14 day Williams %R for Sunstone Hotel Investors (SHO) is noted at -44.09. The Average True Range is an investor tool used to measure stock volatility. A ratio lower than one shows that the price has decreased over that time period. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder. The lower the ERP5 rank, the more undervalued a company is thought to be. Currently, the 14-day ADX for Sunstone Hotel Investors (SHO) is 17.59. Many technical analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. The Williams %R can be an effective momentum indicator to help measure overbought/oversold levels. In general, a company with a score closer to 0 would be seen as undervalued, and a score closer to 100 would indicate an overvalued company. In general, a rising ADX line means that an existing trend is gaining strength. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is an often employed momentum oscillator that is used to measure the speed and change of stock price movements. The ADX was created by J. Welles Wilder to help determine how strong a trend is. The Volatility 3m is a similar percentage determined by the daily log normal returns and standard deviation of the share price over 3 months. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. An RSI reading over 70 would be considered overbought, and a reading under 30 would indicate oversold conditions. Many consider the equity oversold if the reading is below -80 and overbought if the indicator is between 0 and -20. On the other hand, a reading of -100 would imply that the stock is oversold and possibly set for a rally.
