Example: Expected Returns Suppose you have predicted the following returns for stocks C and T in three possible states of nature. What are the expected returns? State Probability C T Boom 0.3 0.15 0.25 Normal 0.5 0.10 0.20 Recession 0.2 0.02 0.01 • R C = .3(.15) + .5(.10) + .2(.02) = .099 = 9.99% • R T = .3(.25) + .5(.20) + .2(.01) = .177 = 17.7%
