In general, stock analysis is a method for investors and traders to make individual buying and selling decisions.

Risk management strategies are usually required to make sure all portfolios are properly aligned against their risk tolerance level. You can consider holding GMS together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Masonite Worldwide to your portfolio. If Masonite Worldwide is not perfectly correlated to GMS 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.
