How important is Aspen's Liquidity

Aspen financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Aspen Group ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Aspen financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Aspen's total debt and its cash.

Correlation Between Aspen and Four Seasons Education

In general, stock analysis is a method for investors and traders to make individual buying and selling decisions. Stock correlation analysis is also essential because it can help investors realize that they may not be as diversified as they think. Risk management strategies are usually required to make sure all portfolios are properly aligned against their risk tolerance level. You can consider holding Aspen together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Four Seasons to your portfolio. If Four Seasons is not perfectly correlated to Aspen it will diversify some of the market risks out of the positively correlated stocks in your portfolio. However, the disadvantage of this sort of hedging is that it can potentially affect your investment returns throughout market cycles. When Aspen for example, for example, performs excellent and delivers stable returns, the negatively correlated position you locked in as a hedge may drag your returns down.

Are you currently holding both Aspen and Four Seasons in your portfolio? Please note if you are using this as a pair-trade strategy between Aspen and Four Seasons, watch out for correlation discrepancy over time. Relying on the historical price correlations and assuming that it will not change may lead to short-term losses.
