Is the Options Market Predicting a Spike in Intelsat (I) Stock?
Posted:4 September 2018

Investors in Intelsat S.A. (I Free Report) need to pay close attention to the stock based on moves in the options market lately. That is because the Sep 7, 2018 $11.00 Call had some of the highest implied volatility of all equity options today.

What is Implied Volatility?

Implied volatility shows how much movement the market is expecting in the future. Options with high levels of implied volatility suggest that investors in the underlying stocks are expecting a big move in one direction or the other. It could also mean there is an event coming up soon that may cause a big rally or a huge sell-off. However, implied volatility is only one piece of the puzzle when putting together an options trading strategy.

Up 400% So Far in 2018, Is Intelsat for Real?
Posted:  20 July 2018

Nicolas Rossolillo (nrossolillo)
July 20, 2018 at 9:03PM

Shares of satellite communications company Intelsat (NYSE:I) are up over 400% so far in 2018. Positive press and speculation have fueled the dramatic increase, and at least one analyst is calling for even more upside. However, investors hoping for more return should be aware of the big risk they are taking in owning this company.

What happened?

The hubbub got started early this year when the Luxembourg-based communications outfit reported its full-year 2017 results. Along with those results, the company said it won a contract to expand 4G LTE mobile services in rural America and that a proposal was made to the Federal Communications Commission to use Intelsat's satellites to speed up the deployment of the fast-approaching 5G wireless network.

C-Band is Key

Why You Need To Look At This Factor Before Buying Intelsat SA. (NYSE:I)
Posted:  12 June 2018

If you are looking to invest in Intelsat SA.’s (NYSE:I), or currently own the stock, then you need to understand its beta in order to understand how it can affect the risk of your portfolio. The beta measures I’s exposure to the wider market risk, which reflects changes in economic and political factors. Not every stock is exposed to the same level of market risk, and the broad market index represents a beta value of one. A stock with a beta greater than one is considered more sensitive to market-wide shocks compared to a stock that trades below the value of one.
