Years rA rB Portfolio return
2006 -18% -14.50% -16.25%
2007 33% 21.80% 27.40%
2008 15% 30.50% 22.75%
2009 -0.50% -7.60% -4.05%
2006 27% 26.30% 26.65%

Average rate of return on the portfolio = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance = Standard deviation / Mean
Standard deviation of Stk A = 20.79%
Return of Stk A = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance (A) = 1.84

Standard deviation of Stk B = 20.78%
Return of Stk B = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance (B) = 1.84

Standard deviation of Port = 20.13%
Return of Portfolio = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance Port = 1.78
