The stock with the lowest beta (0.76) is Apple Inc. stock. The stock with the highest beta (3.29) is Facebook Inc. stock. Beta for Apple Inc. stock is less that 1, it tells us that stock price is less volatile and risky than market.

While beta for Facebook Inc. stock is more than 1, it indicate that stock price is more volatile and risky than overall market. Looking at the performance of these stock with my initial investment of $10,000 for each stock, I can tell that Facebook Inc. stock have higher earning than Apple Inc. stock. So, with more risky securities, such as Facebook Inc. in my case, investor can expect a higher return than for the Apple securities which are less risky.
