by Volatility / Risk: Maximum Drawdown, Standard Deviation, Downside Deviation, Beta

Alpha is another way to see risk-adjusted return, showing the extra return above the expected return given the asset class's volatility (beta). Alpha greater than zero shows performance above what is expected based on its beta versus the benchmark of the S&P 500 (represented by the SPY exchange-traded fund).
