REVG is currently seeing overall increase in volatility. In comparison, the SP500 index is seeing increase in volatility. During the last three months, there was a significant surge in REVG's volatility from 24 Sep, 2018 to 10 Dec, 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 REVG has significant positive skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors can expect REVG to recover from drawdowns quickly. Which makes REVG a good candidate for investing on short-term bullish trends or even counter-trends hoping for a pull-back.

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

On a general note (since you are interested in REVG), if you are an investor in GNK, you need to be extra careful (consider limiting your exposure or diversifying) as it is extremely unpredictable and therefore risky.
