Expected Return and Variance Analysts believe that two companies, Supertech Inc. R A and Slowpoke Inc. R B will perform according to the chart below next year. The returns of Supertech follow the economy closely, while Slowpoke does not. State of the Economy Probability of State of the Economy Supertech Returns R A Slowpoke Return R B Depression .10 -30% 0% Recession .20 -10% 5% Normal .50 20% 20% Boom .20 50% -5%

Expected Return We calculate the expected return exactly as we would in a statistics class. Multiply the returns by the probabilities and sum them. Supertech Inc. .10(-.30) + .2(-10) + .50(.20) + .20(.50) = 15% Slowpoke Inc. .10(.00) + .2(.05) + .50(.20) + .20(-.05) = 10%

Steps for Calculating Variance and Standard Deviation 1. Calculate Expected Returns 2. Calculate deviation from expected return 3. Square deviations from expected return 4. Multiply squared deviation by its probability and sum the products to get the variance 5. Take the square root of the variance to get the standard deviation

Meaningful Statistics The variance and standard deviations of stocks tell us about the variability of the individual stocks. To measure the relationship between two stocks, we use covariance and correlation. Remember that a correlation value of 1 means that two securities move perfectly together and a -1 correlation means that the securities move perfectly opposite of each other
