English translation:Beta coeffcient of the stock
Explanation:
It is called beta coeffcient of the stock or assets. It has nothing to do with srtings or chords as my colleague has imagined.

Explanation:
"beta" means "twine, cord, or rope," or a piece of tape or bit of thread, as well as referring to the second letter of the Greek alphabet. Without more context it's almost impossible to say for sure what "beta do activo" ("beta of the assets") refers to, unless the company makes string or rope, or (slightly less unlikely) it refers to the second item (the "beta" item) listed under the heading "Assets" in a document or report (such as a balance sheet or other financial statement). -- Wish I could be more helpful!

Explanation:
Your first clue is in the simplest word in there in the middle. Without seeing more of it, it might just be a typo, but I think you may have Portuguese here instead of Spanish.
