Are Cubic (NYSE:CUB) investors starting to hold back?
Cubic has a beta of 0.6151. Let's try to break down what Cubic's beta means in this case. Cubic returns are very sensitive to returns on the market. As the market goes up or down, Cubic is expected to follow. The beta indicator helps investors understand whether Cubic moves in the same direction as the rest of the market, and how volatile (i.e., risky) it is compared to the market (i.e., selected benchmark). In other words, if Cubic deviates very little from the market, it does not add much risk to the portfolio, but it also doesn't increase the expected returns.
There are currently many different techniques concerning forecasting the market as a whole as well as predicting future values of individual securities such as Cubic. Regardless of method or technology, to accurately forecast the stock market is more a matter of luck rather than a particular technique. Nevertheless, trying to predict the stock market accurately is still an essential part of the overall investment decision process. Using different forecasting techniques and comparing the results might improve your chances of accuracy even though unexpected events may often change the market sentiment and impact your forecasting results.

How important is Cubic's Liquidity

Cubic financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Cubic ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Cubic financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Cubic's total debt and its cash.
