Correlation Between Motorcar and Alcoa Corp

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 Motorcar Parts together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Alcoa Corp to your portfolio. If Alcoa Corp is not perfectly correlated to Motorcar Parts 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 Motorcar Parts 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.
