7 Mutual Fund Returns Mutual Fund Returns (See Business Snapshot 13.1 on page 281) Snapshot 13.1 on page 281) y Suppose that returns in successive years are 15%, 20%, 30%, -20% and 25% y The arithmetic mean of the returns is 14% y The returned that would actually be earned over the five years (the geometric mean) is 12.4% 8 The Volatility The Volatility y The volatility is the standard deviation of the continuously compounded rate of return in 1 year y The standard deviation of the return in time Δ t is y If a stock price is $50 and its volatility is 25% per year what is the standard deviation of the price change in one day? t Δ σ

9 Estimating Volatility from Estimating Volatility from Historical Data Historical Data (page 282 -84) 84) 1. Take observations S 0 , S 1 , . . . , S n at intervals of τ years 2. Calculate the continuously compounded return in each interval as: 3.
