How important is Odyssey Marine's Liquidity

Correlation Between Odyssey and Global Payments

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 Odyssey Marine together with similar or unrelated positions with a negative correlation. For example, you can also add Global Payments to your portfolio. If Global Payments is not perfectly correlated to Odyssey Marine 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 Odyssey Marine 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. Please check pair correlation details between OMEX and GPN for more information.


Are you currently holding both Odyssey Marine and Global Payments in your portfolio? Please note if you are using this as a pair-trade strategy between Odyssey Marine and Global Payments, watch out for correlation discrepancy over time. Relying on the historical price correlations and assuming that it will not change may lead to short-term losses.
