Mean of a Distribution u. A random variable (r. v. ) w takes values w 1, …, w. S with probabilities 1, . . . , S ( 1 + · · · + S = 1). u The mean (expected value) of the distribution is the av. value of the r. v. ; © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 2

Variance of a Distribution u The distribution’s variance is the r. v. ’s av. squared deviation from the mean; u Variance measures the r. v. ’s variation. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 3

Standard Deviation of a Distribution u The distribution’s standard deviation is the square root of its variance; u St. deviation also measures the r. v. ’s variability. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 4

Measuring Risk u Quantitatively, how risky is an asset? u Depends upon how the asset’s value depends upon other assets’ values. u E. g. Asset A’s value is $60 with chance 1/4 and $20 with chance 3/4. u Pay at most $30 for asset A. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 45

Measuring Risk u Asset A’s value is $60 with chance 1/4 and $20 with chance 3/4. u Asset B’s value is $20 when asset A’s value is $60 and is $60 when asset A’s value is $20 (perfect negative correlation of values). u Pay up to $40 > $30 for a 50 -50 mix of assets A and B. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 46

Measuring Risk u Asset A’s risk relative to risk in the whole stock market is measured by © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 47

Measuring Risk u Asset A’s risk relative to risk in the whole stock market is measured by where is the market’s rate-of-return and is asset A’s rate-of-return. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 48

Measuring Risk u asset A’s return is not perfectly correlated with the whole market’s return and so it can be used to build a lower risk portfolio. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 49

Equilibrium in Risky Asset Markets u At equilibrium, all assets’ riskadjusted rates-of-return must be equal. u How do we adjust for riskiness? © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 50

Equilibrium in Risky Asset Markets u Riskiness of asset A relative to total market risk is A. u Total market risk is m. u So total riskiness of asset A is A m. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 51

Equilibrium in Risky Asset Markets u Riskiness of asset A relative to total market risk is A. u Total market risk is m. u So total riskiness of asset A is A m. u Price of risk is u So cost of asset A’s risk is p A m. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 52

Equilibrium in Risky Asset Markets u Risk adjustment for asset A is u Risk adjusted rate-of-return for asset A is © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 53

Equilibrium in Risky Asset Markets u At equilibrium, all risk adjusted rates -of-return for all assets are equal. u The risk-free asset’s = 0 so its adjusted rate-of-return is just u Hence, for every risky asset A. © 2010 W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 54
