Can Beta of a Stock be 0? And can Beta be Negative?
Melvin, USA
Question on CAPM: I know that in the CAPM Model the Beta for a stock can be less than one. If the company has a Beta of 0.33, then it is supposed to be 3 times less risky than the overall market. But can Beta also be zero? And can it be negative?
