What are the sources of differences in risk, returns and risk premiums?
Types of risks: Business risk/Financial risk/Liquidity risk – i.e. BA decides to buy 20 new planes. Industry risk – i.e. Subprime crisis Country risk/Exchange rate risk – i.e. Iceland Krona, recession in the economy Investors may held a portfolio of different assets What happens to the risk of a portfolio as we add more assets? Risk that can be eliminated by diversification is called unsystematic risk whereas risk that remains is called systematic risk.

How to allocate the capital between the market and the risk free asset? … That decision has been shown to account for an astonishing 94% of the differences in total returns achieved by institutionally managed pension funds. There is no reason to believe that the same relationship does not also hold true for individual investors… (J. Bogle, Chairman of the Vanguard group of investment companies).
Capital Allocation between the risk free asset and the market portfolio How to allocate the capital between the market and the risk free asset? Feasible risk return combinations: Let assume we have decided the proportion of investment asset, w 1 to be allocated in the market portfolio and w 2 in the risk free. What is the expected return and the variance of the portfolio?

Capital Allocation between the risk free asset and the market portfolio: The role of risk tolerance… How to choose the complete portfolio from among the feasible risk return combinations? Let assume y = w 1, the portion of money to be allocated in the market portfolio and 1-y = w 2 the portion of money to be allocated in the risk free. The purpose is to maximise our utility by choosing the best allocation to the risky asset, y.

Suppose that stock prices are predictable – XYZ stock price will rise in three days by 10%. Action (Immediately reflect good news): If you do not hold XYZ stock – Buy XYZ If you hold XYZ stock – Do not sell XYZ A forecast about future performance leads to changes in current performance Stock prices reflect all available stock information
Why are price changes random? Prices react to information (If it could be predicted, then the prediction would be part of todays stock price) Thus, flow of new information (cannot be predicted) is random Therefore, price changes are random Random price changes indicate a rational market…
Why should stock prices fully and accurately reflect all available information? Information may be costly to uncover and analyze thus need the appropriate reward Intensive competition among market participants assures prices reflect all information
Forms of the EMH: Weak (Prices will reflect all information that can be derived from trading historical data such past prices and trading volume) Semi-strong (Prices will reflect all publicly available information regarding the prospects of the firm) Strong (Prices would reflect all information relevant to the firms prospects, even inside information)
