Capital market data of the highest quality — up to date and in compliance with standards

Calculating beta factors for business valuation is particularly challenging, as the data must be accurate and comprehensible in order to avoid expensive mistakes. At SmartZebra, we understand the importance of accurate beta calculations, especially when it comes to future-oriented corporate values. That is why we offer a comprehensive database of over 27,000 companies from the world's major capital markets, including a search function that helps to identify suitable peer groups for difficult cases.

But what is the beta factor anyway and why is it so important? The beta factor of a stock describes the risk in relation to the risk of the entire stock market. The beta factor is determined by the regression of the return on stocks against the yield of a broad stock index. Companies with a beta factor of more than 1 have a higher risk than the market, while companies with a beta factor of less than 1 are considered to be more stable.

Our SmartZebra database offers a variety of industry betas for 20 sectors and 129 sub-sectors. We transparently display the number of companies in the sub-sectors and which companies they are. In combination with our company database and our intelligent search function, you can quickly find the right peer groups.

Whether you're an experienced business analyst or just need an overview, our database of high-quality capital market data will help you work more precisely and effectively. Try it out today!
