The company management teams have been very successful in rebalancing the firm assets at opportune times to take advantage of market volatility in October.

The current volatility is consistent with the ongoing market swings in October 2020 as well as with GSE Systems unsystematic, company-specific events.

Another setback for GSE Systems insiders

Semi variance is down to 3.65. It may hint at a possible volatility decline. GSE Systems currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.04 and Jensen Alpha of 0.19. However, we do advice investors to further question GSE Systems expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. GSE Systems is a potential penny stock. Although GSE Systems may be in fact a good instrument to invest, many penny stocks are speculative in nature and are subject to artificial price hype. Please make sure you totally understand the upside potential and downside risk of investing in GSE Systems. We encourage investors to look for the signals such us email spams, message board hypes, claims of breakthroughs, volume upswings, sudden news releases, promotions that are not reported, or demotions released before SEC filings. Please also check biographies and work history of current and past company officers before investing in high volatility instruments, penny stocks, or equities with microcap classification. You can indeed make money on this equity instrument if you perfectly time your entry and exit. However, remember that penny stocks that have been the subject of an artificial hype usually unable to maintain its increased share price for more than just a few days. The price of a promoted high volatility instrument will almost always revert back. The only way to increase shareholder value is through legitimate performance backed up by solid fundamentals.

Our Final Perspective on GSE Systems

Although many other companies in the software?application industry are either recovering or due for a correction, GSE Systems may not be performing as strong as the other in terms of long-term growth potentials. To conclude, as of the 16th of November 2020, we believe that at this point, GSE Systems is very risky with above average chance of distress within the next 2 years. From a slightly different point of view, the entity appears to be undervalued. Our primary 30 days Buy-Hold-Sell recommendation on the firm is Cautious Hold.
