The value of a stock is based on its discounted expected future cash flows b. Normal Distribution- Has two properties i. It is symmetric and completely descried by two parameters, mean and standard deviation 1. Implies that the risk of a normally distributed investment return is fully described by its standard deviation 2. Small stocks have the largest standard deviations, then large stocks, then long term bonds, then t bills ii. A weighted average of variables that are normally distributed will be normally distributed c. Value at Risk (VaR)- highlights the potential loss from extreme negative returns i.
