The Correlation tab of the Portfolio Analysis window shows the correlation between all the holdings of the portfolios or watchlists selected on the left. You can also add additional tickers for correlation analysis via the ticker box. You can add anything that Stock Rover can price to the correlation table. This includes stocks, indices, ETFs, mutual funds, portfolios and watchlists. The portfolios or watchlists that are selected on the left will be added as rows and columns, in addition to the stocks that comprise those portfolios or watchlists.

Stock Rover’s correlation computation use the daily dividend adjusted price change percentage of an equity, ETF, mutual fund, portfolio or watchlist.

If the ‘Heat Map’ box is checked (circled below), positive correlations will appear in gradations of red, while negative gradations will appear in gradations of blue. If you mouseover a correlation number, a tooltip will display the corresponding two stocks for that value.

If you mouse over an identity cell (the diagonal set of cells with values of 1), then the tooltip will indicate the tickers in the table that are most and least correlated with the selected identity ticker along with the associated correlation values.
