# Is it legitimate to assess the resilience of industries and sectors through the stock market?

I would like to assess the resilience of some sectors in Europe but I honestly lack data, and it seemed to me the simplest solution to be able to implement univariate (arima etc) and multivariate (mainly VAR with some variables like inflation) forecasts using Stoxx datas.

Is this a terrible idea ?

Thanks.

If you want an overview of these ideas above, they are discussed in Chapters 5 and 13 of A Quantitative Primer on Investments with $$R$$.
