High Beta Stocks: These 5 Stocks Are Up 550% To 8,300% YTD

Beta refers to the response variable of a stock, which means it tells you how a stock’s value moves in relation to the market. All of the high beta stocks on our list today have beta values above 3, which means when the market moves, they move faster and it is reflected in their YTD movement, gaining between 550% to 8,300%. This means that when the market is in an upswing, volatile stocks can pay off heavily. Just be aware , though, that although these stocks can move up quickly, the opposite can happen just as fast.
