Market risk is measured by beta, while stand-alone risk consists of both market risk plus an element of risk that can be eliminated through diversification.

Financial risk is the additional risk borne by the stockholders as a result of the use of debt. Operating Leverage reflects amount of fixed costs embedded in a firm's operations. Thus, if a high percentage of a firm's costs are fixed, hence continue even if sales decline, then the firm is said to have high operating leverage. High operating leverage produces a situation where a small change in sales can result in a large change in operating income. The following example compares two operational plans with different degrees of operating leverage. Using the input data given below, we examine the firm's profitability under two operating plans, in different states of the economy. The probabilities of the economic states are also given in the example. Product sells at same price regardless of how it is produ
