The Low Revenue estimate is $4.93 Billion, while High Revenue estimate is $5.41 Billion. An example of the first is a treasury bill: the price does not go up or down a lot, so it has a low beta. The higher the relative volume is the more in play it is because more traders are watching and trading it.

A beta greater than one generally means that the asset both is volatile and tends to move up and down with the market. For example, a stock that has a high standard deviation experiences higher volatility, and therefore, a higher level of risk is associated with the stock.

Beta is important because it measures the risk of an investment that can not be reduced by diversification. The process involves spotting the amount of risk involved and either accepting or mitigating the risk linked with an investment. The perception is that the lower the P/E, the higher will be the value of the stock.

Generally, shareholders love stocks with a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio. In the same way a stock's beta shows its relation to market shifts, it is also an indicator for required returns on investment (ROI). The beta value of CI stands at 0.59.
