However, we advise all investors to independently investigate Autozone to ensure all accessible information is consistent with the expectations about its upside potential and future expected returns. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Autozone's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Autozone's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Whereas some companies under the specialty retail industry are still a bit expensive, Autozone may offer a potential longer-term growth to institutional investors. In closing, as of the 2nd of March 2021, we believe Autozone is currently fairly valued. It barely shadows the market and projects below average odds of distress in the next two years. Our ongoing 30 days buy-or-sell advice on the company is Hold.
