Newest Skewness is up to -0.06. Price may reset again. Gartner currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of -0.03 and Jensen Alpha of 0.11. However, we do advice investors to further question Gartner expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk.

Our Final Take On Gartner

Whereas other companies within the information technology services industry are still a little expensive, even after the recent corrections, Gartner may offer a potential longer-term growth to private investors. On the whole, as of the 4th of August 2020, our ongoing 30 days buy-or-sell advice on the firm is Strong Sell. However, we believe Gartner is fairly valued with below average odds of financial turmoil for the next two years.
