Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Alpha and beta are useful metrics for gauging the performance of a portfolio relative to the market.

While alpha estimates an investment's percent excess return relative to the market, beta is a measure of its systematic risk/market exposure.
