Another setback for Cooper Tire investors

Cooper Tire current kurtosis builds up over 0.22. Cooper Tire Rubber currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.12 and Jensen Alpha of 0.57. 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.

Our Final Takeaway

Whereas some companies in the auto parts industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Cooper Tire may not be performing as strong as the other in terms of long-term growth potentials. Taking everything into account, as of the 3rd of August 2020, we believe Cooper Tire is currently overvalued. It barely shadows the market and projects below average probability of distress in the next two years. Our current 30 days buy-sell recommendation on the company is Strong Hold.
