A linear regression of the Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF and Corning's monthly returns yields a beta of 1.03 for Corning. Corning's average monthly return will mirror the Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF. Corning may not help diversify a portfolio and will not protect against the market's volatility.  

Here's the linear regression model:

> # Conduct the Linear Regression of the Monthly Returns Between $VOO and $GLW

> lmVOOGLW = lm(GLW_Monthly_Return~VOO_Monthly_Return, data = VOOandGLW)

> # Present the summary of the results from the linear regression

> summary(lmVOOGLW)


lm(formula = GLW_Monthly_Return ~ VOO_Monthly_Return, data = VOOandGLW)

The coefficient for VOO_Monthly_Return [1.039148] is the beta for Corning.  The p-value is significant at a 95% confidence interval. The adjusted R-squared is 0.42, which means about 42% of Corning's average monthly return is explained by the Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF returns.
