Is there a web site where you can compare the beta of one stock vs. another stock? Thanks.

Well .....

First, I entered the wrong URL ... barchats.com (try that one!)
Then I entered ... barcharts.com (wrong again)
Finally, I entered ... barchart.com (which is the right site)

But I couldn't find anything about "Beta" on barchart.com
Help me. What did I miss?

How do I compare Beta, for example, on IWM to IWN?

OK, let's simplify it. Just compare the "Beta" of any stock to the overall SP 500 (which is the norm). Go to, for example, http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=IWM. And do likewise for the stock, "IWN." Here are the results [end-of-day 8/12/05] of both IWM and IWN compared to the SP 500:

............... YTD ...........3-Yr. ............... 5-Yr. ........................
..............................Avg. Return.... Avg. Return ...... BETA

IWM ...... 4.95% ..... 21.58% .......... 7.53% ........... 1.07
IWN ...... 6.50% ..... 22.39% ........ 16.31% ............0.98

For your info: SP 500 "Beta" = 1.00
