Correlation Between Cooper and American Axle Manufa

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 Cooper Tire together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add American Axle to your portfolio. If American Axle is not perfectly correlated to Cooper Tire 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 Cooper Tire 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. Please check pair correlation details between CTB and AXL for more information.

Are you currently holding both Cooper Tire and American Axle in your portfolio? Please note if you are using this as a pair-trade strategy between Cooper Tire and American Axle, watch out for correlation discrepancy over time.

Another setback for Cooper Tire investors

Total risk alpha is down to 0.23. It may suggest a possible volatility slip. Cooper Tire Rubber currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation.

However, we do advice investors to further question Cooper Tire Rubber expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk.

The Bottom Line

Whereas other entities in the auto parts industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Cooper may not be as strong as the others in terms of longer-term growth potentials. To sum up, as of the 2nd of August 2020, our final 30 days Buy-Hold-Sell recommendation on the company is Strong Hold. We believe Cooper Tire is currently overvalued with below average probability of distress for the next two years.
