HBIO.US volatility(beta: 1.31)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Harvard Bioscience's is 1.307. This would suggest that Harvard Bioscience's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
