Outline of Today’s Lecture Risk & Return for Security Portfolios Allocation Decision Levels Complete Portfolio Return & Risk The Capital Allocation Line 3 Expected Portfolio Return, E( r P ) E( r P ) = w 1 E( r 1 ) + w 2 E( r 2 ) where w 1 and w 2 are portfolio weights, or the fraction of wealth the investor puts into each security. E.g., Invest $25 in r 1 and $75 in r 2 : w 1 = 25/100, w 2 = 75/100 Expected Portfolio Return 4

Suppose you have $100 to invest, which you split equally between stocks 1 & 2: w 1 = $50/$100 = 50% = w 2 E( r P ) = w 1 E( r 1 ) + w 2 E( r 2 ) E( r P ) = 0.50(4%) + 0.50(8%) = 6% This portfolio is expected to return 6%. Example 5 Portfolio Variance Portfolio Variance, P 2 = E[ r P –E( r P )] 2 P 2 = E[ w 1 r 1 + w 2 r 2 w 1 r 1 + w 2 r 2 )] 2 = E[ w 1 r 1 w 1 r 1 ) + w 2 r 2 w 2
