Our Volatility Quotient or VQ analyzes the historical pricing of stocks. The higher the volatility quotient, the more volatile the stock.

The PVQ, or Portfolio Volatility Quotient, applies the VQ to entire portfolios.

It will show you how heavily you are invested in low, medium, high risk, and sky high risk investments.
