4 (Side Note): Do not sum returns over multiple periods! Arithmetic Average Return r a = (r 1 + r 2 + r 3 + . .. r n ) / n r a = (.10 + .25 - .20 + .25) / 4 = .10 or 10% Geometric Average Return ( use this !) r g = {[(1+r 1 ) (1+r 2 ) . ... (1+r n )]} 1/n - 1 r g = {[(1.1) (1.25) (.8) (1.25)]} 1/4 - 1 = (1.375) 1/4 -1 = .0829 = 8.29% Year1 Year2 Year3 Year4 Ret 0.10 0.25 -0.20 0.25 How To Measure Asset Returns?

6 An asset’s portfolio weight , ϖ i , is the percentage of the portfolio’s total value invested in that particular asset. The weight held in each stock, is: Portfolio weights can be positive (a “long” position) or negative (a “short” position) Portfolio weights should always add to one ( ϖ 1 +..+ ϖ N =1) - If you buy a stock … - If you short-sell (borrow) a stock … - If you deposit money (buy a risk-free security) … - If you borrow money (borrowing risk-free) …

8 Example : . You have $100,000 to invest . ABC shares: ABC is trading at $10/share In 1-year: ABC pays $1 in dividends, trades at $11/share . Risk-free deposit r f = 5% per year -> r ABC = ? -> r portfolio = ?

9 Portfolio A : buy 10,000 shares of ABC w ABC = w f = Portfolio B : buy 5,000 shares of ABC, deposit at 5% w ABC = w f = Portfolio C : buy 20,000 shares of ABC on margin and borrow at 6% (assume no margin call) w ABC = w f = Portfolio D : sell-short 10,000 shares of ABC, deposit at 5% w ABC = w f = Portfolio E : sell-short 5,000 shares of ABC, deposit at 5% w ABC = w f =
