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 National Cinemedia together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Parts ID to your portfolio. If Parts ID is not perfectly correlated to National Cinemedia it will diversify some of the market risks out of the positively correlated stocks in your portfolio.
