-expresses extent to which movements of securities in the same portfolio are similar or not
-uses specific range: +1 to -1
=covariance/(SD1xSD2)
Covariance
-extent to which movements of securities in portfolio are similar or not
-considers infinite possibility of outcomes
-extent to which 2 stocks are related to each other or how the price movements of one relate to the movements of the second
=correlation coefficient x SD1 x SD2
Perfectly Positively Correlated
-correlation coefficient = +1
-standard deviation of portfolio equals the weighted average of the standard deviations of the two assets
-maximum risk of portfolio
Perfectly Negatively Correlated
-correlation coefficient = -1
-move exactly opposite, no risk
-portfolio standard deviation = 0
Coefficient of Variation (CV)
the standardized measure of the risk per unit of return; calculated as the standard deviation divided by the expected returns
-standard deviation divided by average return
-risk per unit of expected return
Standard Deviation
measures variability of returns used in a nondiversified portfolio and is a measure of total risk
-find on calculator using sigma, shift 8
Beta
measures volatility of returns used in a diversified portfolio and is a measure of systematic risk
Standard Deviation Shortcut
depending on percentage weighting, just average the SDs of the two securities and look for the next lowest answer (unless perfectly positively correlated, SD of portfolio must be less than the weighted average SD)
Beta Formula
=covariance / SD of market squared
=(correlation coefficient x SD of stock)/SD of market
Risk Adjusted Return
-divide funds realized return by beta
Simple Return
-arithmetic mean
Compound Return
-involves adding interest to principal in order to calculate interest in the next period
Geometric Mean
-reflects compound returns over more than one time period
-time-weighted return
-often used to find avg for numbers as %
-evaluate performance of portfolio mgr
-not affected by cash flows
Geometric Mean Calculation
1. add 1 to the returns
2. multiply the returns
3. result become the FV
4. PV = -1
5. N = number of period
solve for i
Time-Weighted Return
-measures investment performance as a % of capital "at work"
-eliminates the effects of additions and withdrawals and their timing
Dollar-Weighted Return
-Measures changes in total dollar value, treating additions / withdrawals of capital as part of the return along with income, cap gains / losses.
-Same as IRR/ NPV.
-Manager to manager comparisons are not possible.
-Uses reinvestment rate.
Holding Period Return
-total return over the period from purchase to end of period or sale, divided by the price of the investment (out of pocket cost)

YTM
Yield to Maturity
-takes into acct mkt price as well as gains or losses if held to maturity
-always use semiannual compounding
-assumes coupons being reinvested at rate equal to YTM
TEY
Taxable Equivalent Yield
-shows the interest rate on taxable bonds necessary to provide same after-tax return as muni
=tax-exempt yield / (1 - marginal tax rate)
Tax Exempt Yield
= TEY x (1 - marginal tax rate)
Bond Duration
-measures weighted average maturity of the bond's cash flow on PV basis
-PV of cash flows are used as weights in calculating the weighted avg maturity
-most important measure of how risky bonds are, measures sensitivity to interest rate changes
-reveals how bond will react to particular change in interest rates
Duration formula
Dur = [(1 + y) / y] - [([1 +y] + t[c - y]) / [c([1 + y]supt - 1) + y]
y = Yield-to-maturity per period (CY on comparative bonds)
c = Coupon rate per period
t = Number of periods until maturity
Duration Usage
-can compare price volatility of bonds with equal coupons but different terms on basis of time
-risk averse means lower duration
-aggressive investors prefer high duration only when they anticipate rates will decline
Duration Trends
-High coupon, low duration (inverse)
-Long maturity, high duration (directly related)
Immunization
-duration of portfolio equals the time horizon
Change in Bond Price - Duration Formula
= -D x [change in interest rates / (1 + YTM)]
-answer is a percentage change
Using Duration to Manage Bond Portfolios
-interest rate will rise, shorten duration
-interest rate will fall, lengthen duration
Bond Price Volatility Guidelines
-smaller coupon, greater price fluctuations
-term to maturity longer, greater price fluctuations
-mkt interest rate lower, greater price fluctuations
Covexity
-degree to which duration changes as a bond's YTM changes
-largest for low coupon, long-maturity bonds and low YTM bonds
Zero Dividend Growth Model
Price = Dividend / Required Rate of Return
Constant Growth Model
Price = D1 / (r - g)
Price = [D0 x (1 + g) / (r - g)]
Summary of Dividend Discount Model
-if mkt lowers required rate for a stock, value of common stock will rise
-and vice versa
Two Layer Dividend Growth Rate
Step 1: add up the PV of the dividend for each year of the first growth rate
Step 2: Use constant growth model for the year that the rate changes and find the PV
Step 3: Add the PVs from Step 1 & Step 2 together
Two Layer Dividend Growth Shortcut
-use the DDM beginning with the second growth rate
-if the 1st growth rate is lower than the 2nd one, choose the next lowest number as the answer
-if the first growth rate is higher than the 2nd, choose the next highest number
Price/Earnings
Current Market Price = Earnings x P/E ratio
Price/Free Cash Flow
Value = FCF1 / (r -g)
ROE
Return on Equity
= EPS / Common Equity (net worth/book value)
-determined after preferred stock dividends but before common stock dividends are paid out
Dividend Payout Ratio
= common dividends paid / EPS
EPS
Earnings Per Share
= ROE x Book Value or Net Worth
MPT

-assumes compensation for taking on risk
-security valuation, asset allocation decision, portfolio optimization, performance measurement
Capital Market Line
-macro aspect of MPT
-specifies relationship between risk and return on a portfolio rather than one investment
-straight line, tangent to efficient frontier at 1 point
-y axis = expected return %; x axis = risk (SD)
-reveals expected return on fully diversified portfolio, diversified portfolio should fall along CML, individual securities or inefficient portfolios fall below CML, can't be used to evaluate performance of single security or non diversified portfolio, Rf is risk free return (100% T-Bills)
-slope is market price of risk for efficient port
SML
Security Market Line; micro
-relationship between risk and return for an asset
-doesn't matter if portfolio is diversified or non-diversified
r = Rf + (Erm - Rf) x B (CAPM)
- y axis = expected return, x-axis = beta
Market Risk Premium
= Erm - Rf

Sharpe Ratio
-ratio of excess return of the portfolio to its SD
= (rate of portfolio - risk free rate) / standard deviation of portfolio
Treynor Ratio
-ratio of excess return of portfolio to its beta
= (rate of portfolio - risk free rate) / portfolio beta
Jensen ratio (alpha)
-calculates the portfolio return actually attained and subtracts what the return should have been based on risk assumed in portfolio
= return of portfolio - [risk free rate + (return on market - risk free rate) x Beta of portfolio]
Best ratio to compare funds
-Jensen and Treynor only used if portfolio is diversified
-Sharpe applies for non-diversified portfolios
-if R squared is 60+, use high alpha first, or highest Treynor second
-if low alpha, use highest Sharpe
Information Ratio
-expresses portfolio returns above the returns of a benchmark to the volatility of those returns
-measures portfolio manager's ability to generate excess returns relative to a benchmark, and attempts to identify consistency
