By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Consumer Services industry with the highest betas. Higher-beta stocks mean greater volatility and are therefore generally considered to be riskier but also may provide the potential for higher returns.

Ascent Capital-A ranks highest with a a beta of 1.8. Collectors Univ is next with a a beta of 1.4. Sotheby'S ranks third highest with a a beta of 1.4.

H&R Block Inc follows with a a beta of 1.1, and Regis Corp rounds out the top five with a a beta of 1.0.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Regis Corp on February 3rd, 2020 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $15.41. Since that call, shares of Regis Corp have fallen 47.0%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
