What are the expected returns? states State Boom Normal Recession Probability 0.3 0.5 ??? C 15 10 2 T 25 20 1 RC = .3(15) + .5(10) + .2(2) = 9.9% RT = .3(25) + .5(20) + .2(1) = 17.7% Variance and Standard Deviation Deviation Variance and standard deviation measure Variance the volatility of returns the Using probabilities for the entire range of Using possibilities possibilities Weighted average of squared deviations σ 2 = ∑ pi ( Ri − E ( R)) 2 i =1 n Example: Variance and Standard Deviation Deviation Consider the previous example. What are the variance Consider and standard deviation for each stock? and Stock C σ 2 = .3(...
