Notes from p-set #2 1. β is the regression line slope coefficient of a stock to the “market.” In the p-set, DIA, or “the Dow” is the “market.” You can find the regression line slope by telling Stata to regress var1 var2 2. Portfolios do not have higher percent return than the individual stocks; they sometimes have lower risk. 3. When your y units shrink by a factor of n and your x units stay constant, your slope and intercept must both shrink by a factor of n . New concepts 1. Probability and Conditional Probability 2. Bayes’ Rule: P ( A | B ) = P ( B | A ) P ( A ) P ( B ) 3. Unions, intersections, complements, disjoint events 4. 2 × 2 tables 5. Independence of events

Practice Problems: 1) I have 5 M&M’s left in the bag: 2 blue, 2 red, and 1 yellow. I plan on eating two more, and leaving the others in the bag. a) b) Describe the set of events for: A : B : c) What is the probability of: A : B : d) Are A & B disjoint? ________ How do you know? e) Describe (in terms of outcomes), D, the intersection of A & B ? and the union, E ? f) What is the probability of D ? of E ? g) Are A & B Independent? How do you know? h) Given you have eaten at least one blue M&M, what is the probability the other one was also blue? [Hint: start by writing this in terms of events
