# Risk and Return

What are investment returns?
nInvestment returns measure the financial results of an investment. nReturns may be historical or prospective (anticipated). nReturns can be expressed in: lRupee terms. lPercentage terms.

Return
• Single period return P o = Rs.300, P1 = Rs.350
   

Return for the period is ………. % P2 = 250

Return for the entire period ….? Period-wise return ?

Ex-post Returns
• Return = current income + capital gains • [(P2 – P1 ) + D2] / P1

Expected Return
• Different scenario • Chance / probability • Return in case of each chance
    

Chance 10% 23% 67% Expected

return 30% 40% 25% return ?

Return
Return : It is the primary motivating force that drives investment. § It represents the reward for undertaking the investment. In security analysis we are primarily and particularly concerned with returns from investors’ perspective. § The return of an investment consists of two components : (i) Current return (ii) Capital return. 1 Current return: Periodic cash flow (income) such as dividend and interest. This can be zero or positive. 2 Capital return: The price appreciation or price changes. This can be zero, positive and negative also. Thus Total Return = Current return + Capital return

What is investment risk?
nTypically, investment returns are not known with certainty. nInvestment risk pertains to the probability of earning a return less than that expected. nThe greater the chance of a return far below the expected return, the greater the risk.

nWhich stock is riskier? Why?

Risk
• Variability of security returns • Standard deviation, variance • SD is extent of deviation from the average value of return = square root of variance and variance is the average of squares deviations of observed returns from expected value of returns

In this context of security analysis, we interpret risk essentially in the terms of the variability of the security return. The most common measures of risk ness of security is SD and Variance of return. Given below returns of two stocks X and Y .

# Stocks in Portfolio

Stand-alone Market = risk + Diversifiable risk risk
Market risk is that part of a security’s stand-alone risk that cannot be eliminated by diversification.

.

Firm-specific, or diversifiable, risk is that part of a security’s stand-alone risk that can be eliminated by diversification.

Reduction of risk through Diversification
Security Analysis: Measuring risk & return. Portfolio Mgt: minimize risk or maximize return. Example: Concept of Covariance: the degree to which the return of two securities vary or change together. Concept of Correlation: the degree of relationship between two variables.

Can an investor holding one stock earn a return commensurate with its risk? • No. Rational investors will minimize risk by holding portfolios. • They bear only market risk, so prices and returns reflect this lower risk. • The one-stock investor bears higher (stand-alone) risk, so the return is less than that required by the risk.

How is market risk measured for individual securities? • Market risk, which is relevant for stocks held in well-diversified portfolios, is defined as the contribution of a security to the overall riskiness of the portfolio. • It is measured by a stock’s beta coefficient. For stock i, its beta is:  bi = (ρ iM σ i) / σ M

How are betas calculated?
• In addition to measuring a stock’s contribution of risk to a portfolio, beta also which measures the stock’s volatility relative to the market. •
