How important is AZZ's Liquidity

It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital.

So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between AZZ's total debt and its cash.

Correlation Between AZZ and Bloom Energy

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 AZZ together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Bloom Energy to your portfolio. If Bloom Energy is not perfectly correlated to AZZ 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 AZZ 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.
