IDEXX Laboratories has 98 percent likelihood to slide below $433 in November

The treynor ratio is down to 11.49 as of today. IDEXX Laboratories currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.15 and Jensen Alpha of 0.32. However, we do advice investors to further question IDEXX Laboratories expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk.

The Bottom Line

While many other companies in the diagnostics & research industry are either recovering or due for a correction, IDEXX may not be as strong as the others in terms of longer-term growth potentials. In closing, as of the 29th of October 2020, our up-to-date 30 days buy-hold-sell advice on the company is Strong Buy. However, we believe IDEXX Laboratories is currently overvalued with very small probability of distress for the next two years.
