NexGen Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NexGen Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.58 up to $6.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NXE.US volatility(beta: 1.58)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while NexGen Energy's is 1.5761. This would suggest that NexGen Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
