A beta lower than 1.0 indicates that, on average, the stock will move to a lesser extent than the market. The higher the beta, the greater the risk.

Betas less than 1.00 are considered less variable than the market, betas greater than 1.00 are considered more variable than the market and negative betas are considered as inversely related to the market.
