CHAPTER 05
RISK AND RETURN: PAST AND PROLOGUE
1.
The 1% VaR will be less than –30%. As percentile or probability of a return declines so
does the magnitude of that return. Thus, a 1 percentile probability will produce a
smaller VaR than a 5 percentile probability.
2.
If inflation increases from 3% to 5%, according to the Fisher equation there will be a
concurrent increase in the nominal rate to offsets the increase in expected inflation.
This gives investors an unchanged growth of purchasing power.
3.
The excess return on the portfolio will be the same as long as you are consistent: you
can use either real rates for the returns on both the portfolio and the risk-free asset, or
nominal rate for each. Just don’t mix and match!
So the average excess return, the
numerator of the Sharpe ratio, will be unaffected.
Similarly, the standard deviation of
the excess return also will be unaffected, again as long as you are consistent.
4.
Decrease. Typically, standard deviation exceeds return. Thus, an underestimation of 4%
in each will artificially decrease the return per unit of risk. To return to the proper risk
return relationship the portfolio will need to decrease the amount of risk free
investments.

Using Equation 5.10, we can calculate the mean of the HPR as:
E(r) =
s
=
1
S
p(s) r(s)
= (0.3
0.44) + (0.4
0.14) + [0.3
(–0.16)] = 0.14 or 14%
Using Equation 5.11, we can calculate the variance as:
Var(r) =
2
=
s
=

S
p(s) [ r(s)
– E(r)]

= [0.3

We use the below equation to calculate the holding period return of each scenario:
HPR =
Ending Price
Beginning Price + Cash Dividend
Be ginning Price

The holding period returns for the three scenarios are:
Boom:
(50 – 40 + 2)/40 = 0.30 = 30%

Time-weighted average returns are based on year-by-year rates of return.
Year
Return = [(Capital gains + Dividend)/Price]
2010-2011
(110 – 100 + 4)/100 = 0.14 or 14.00%
2011-2012
(90 – 110 + 4)/110 = –0.1455 or –14.55%
2012-2013
(95 – 90 + 4)/90 = 0.10 or 10.00%
Arithmetic mean: [0.14 + (–0.1455) + 0.10]/3 = 0.0315 or 3.15%
