ATHM is currently seeing overall fall in volatility. In comparison, the SP500 index is seeing increase in volatility. During the last three months, there was a significant surge in ATHM's volatility from 27 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018. While there was a significant surge in the SP500 index's volatility from 14 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that ATHM has negative skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors may need to stay invested through long periods of drawdown before expecting a recovery.

ATHM has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, ATHM must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than ATHM.

On a general note (since you are interested in ATHM), three instruments that deserve special mention are DLPH, APRN and AMRH. They have all outperformed the market and must be closely watched for investment opportunities.
