To determine which one of the two companies, such as Professional or GEE is a better fit for your portfolio, analyzing a few basic fundamental indicators is a good first step.

How important is Professional Diversity's Liquidity

Professional Diversity financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Professional Diversity Network ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Professional Diversity 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 Professional Diversity's total debt and its cash.

Correlation Between Professional and GEE Group

In general, stock analysis is a method for investors and traders to make individual buying and selling decisions. Stock correlation analysis is also essential because it can help investors realize that they may not be as diversified as they think. Risk management strategies are usually required to make sure all portfolios are properly aligned against their risk tolerance level. You can consider holding Professional Diversity together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add GEE to your portfolio. If GEE is not perfectly correlated to Professional Diversity 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. When Professional Diversity for example, for example, performs excellent and delivers stable returns, the negatively correlated position you locked in as a hedge may drag your returns down.
