We advise investors to inspect Destination XL Group further and ensure that all market timing and asset allocation strategies are consistent with the estimation of Destination future alpha. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Destination's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends.

This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Destination Implied Volatility

Destination's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Destination XL Group stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Destination's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that Destination stock will not fluctuate a lot when Destination's options are near their expiration.

Although some other entities under the apparel retail industry are still a bit expensive, Destination may offer a potential longer-term growth to shareholders. While some shareholders may not share our view, we believe it may be a good time to increase your existing holdings in Destination as the risk-reward trade off is appealing enough to hold a position.
