Think about the Telenor ASA (OTC:TELNY) stock price movements in past 50 Days period and 52-Week period. Telenor ASA stock had a 12-month low at $13 -18.49% and a 12-month high of $22 +43.96%.

The Telenor ASA (OTC:TELNY) stock showed volatility or average true range percent (ATRP 14) at 0.0477%. Volatility is a rate at which the price of a security increases or decreases for a given set of returns. Average true range percent (ATRP) measures volatility on a relative level. This is opposed to the ATR, which measures volatility on an absolute level. ATRP allows securities to be compared whereas ATR does not. That means lower-priced stocks won’t necessarily have lower ATR values than higher priced stocks.

Think about the impact that the Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic had on stock investments. At this time, Norway has 182 deaths from the virus. Sweden has 1,765 deaths from the virus. Sweden has nearly 10 times the number of COVID-19-related deaths than its Nordic neighbors. Norway has half as many people as Sweden. Finland had 141 deaths. Finland has a population similar to Norway's.

Sweden had a controversial coronavirus strategy. The country has left schools, restaurants, and gyms open. The government banned gatherings over 50 people and urged residents to self-isolate.

Sweden's Nordic neighbors Norway and Finland approached the virus differently. This could be why they're having just a fraction of COVID-19-related deaths.

Norway went into lockdown in mid-March, closing schools, restaurants, cultural events, gyms, and tourist attractions. It also banned outside travelers. Finland has been stockpiling medical supplies since the Cold War. It restricted border traffic, banned gatherings of 10 or more people, and closed schools as part of its coronavirus guidelines.

The history of the huge Telenor ASA is interesting. The company was founded‎ in ‎1855. It started as a state-operated monopoly provider of telegraph services named Telegrafverket. The first Norwegian planning for a telegraph was launched within the Royal Norwegian Navy in 1848. However, by 1852, the plans were public and the Parliament of Norway decided on a plan for constructing a telegraph system throughout the country. Televerket began by connecting Christiania (now Oslo) to Sweden (Norway was at that time in a union with Sweden) as well as Christiania and Drammen. By 1857 the telegraph had reached Bergen on the west coast via Sørlandet on the south coast, and by 1871 it had reached Kirkenes on the far north coast. With greater expansions, Cable connections were opened to Denmark in 1867 and to Great Britain in 1869. The telegraph was certainly a useful tool for merchants. They could use the electric telegraph to instantly communicate between different locations.
