What is your best estimate of the daily return on Apple stock? Of the annual return? Daily return Err:502 daily arithmetic average Annual return Err:502 EAR based on daily geometric average 3. Your investment horizon is one year. What is the risk-free rate (Bloomberg)? 1-year T-bill rate 0.43% as of 4/25/10 Source: http://www.bloomberg.com/markets/rates/index.html 4. If you only want to invest in these 5 securities, what is the optimal risky portfolio (ORP) according Annual Expected return Err:502 Extreme expected return is driven by the very large negative Standard deviation Err:502 Annual covariance = 252 * daily covariance, and thus annual Sharpe ratio Err:502 Weights for ORP are shown in Q1, and were found using Solver 5. If you want to invest $50,000, have average risk aversion (A=3) and your preferences can be desc Amount to be invested 50,000 Coefficient of risk aversion (A): 3 Let w be the weight on the risky portfolio: Err:502 T-Bills Apple Boeing Exxon GE WMT Err:502 Err:502 Err:502 Err:502 Err:502 Err:502 w=[E(R p )-R f ]/(A 2 ) llowing securities, using daily data from Yahoo!Finance for the years 2008 and 2009 Weights 168%-125%-122%-208% 386% 100% Need to use 365 days per year, not just 252 observations per year as done by the Geomean() function, to ge Alternatively, you need to annualize by assuming 252 days per year if you used 252 days for the geometric m g to the Markowitz portfolio selection model? What is its annual expected return, standard deviation a expected annual returns for Boeing, Exxon and GE l variance = 252 * daily variance Err:502 cribed by the utility function U=E(R)-0.5As2, how much money ($ amounts) should you invest in each o Sum Err:502 et the average return for all days, not just trading days mean and Sharpe ratio? of the 5+1 (T-bills) securities? 1. Download the daily prices for the S&P 500 (series SPY) from Yahoo!Finance for the years 2008 and See worksheet SPY 2.
