Correlation Between Bunge and Ambev SA ADR

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 Bunge together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Ambev SA to your portfolio. If Ambev SA is not perfectly correlated to Bunge 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 Bunge, for example, performs excellent and delivers stable returns, the negatively correlated position you locked in as a hedge may drag your returns down.

The downside deviation is down to 2.13 as of today. Bunge Limited currently demonstrates below-average downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of -0.04 and Jensen Alpha of -0.06. However, we advise investors to further question Bunge Limited expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Bunge's stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Bunge'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.

While other companies in the farm products industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Bunge may not be performing as strong as the other in terms of long-term growth potentials. With a relatively neutral outlook on the current economy, it is better to hold off any trading of Bunge as the current risk-reward utility is not appealing enough. Please use our equity advice module to run different scenarios to ensure your current risk level and investment horizon are fully reflective of your current investing preferences in regards to Bunge.
