is 0.3 times its previous value: A = α / σ (e)= –5.07/147.68 = –0.0343 and A 2 =0.00118 8-12

8-13 Hence, the square of Sharpe’s measure of the optimized risky portfolio is: S 2 = S 2 M + A 2 = (8/23) 2 + 0.00118 = 0.1222 S = 0.3495 Compare this to the market’s Sharpe measure: S M = 8/23 = 0.3478 The difference is: 0.0017 Note that the reduction of the forecast alphas by a factor of 0.3 reduced the squared information ratio and the improvement in the squared Sharpe ratio by a factor of: 0.3 2 = 0.09

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
