It has Information Ratio of 0.25 and Jensen Alpha of 0.91. However, we advise investors to further question Sunopta expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Sunopta's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Sunopta's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

To summarize, as of the 3rd of March 2021, our concluding 30 days advice on the company is Hold. We believe Sunopta is overvalued with below average chance of bankruptcy for the next two years.
