# Given the Mean Annual Return of two investments (like Stocks and Bonds) and the annualized Volatility

(or Standard Deviation) of each and a degree of Correlation between the two
the Monte Carlo (MC) sheet picks random annual returns* for each, over the next umpteen years and,
assuming some split between the two investment types - like 75% of the former and 25% of the latter (and an annual rebalancing to maintain this split), sees how much would be in your portfolio
if you invest annually (this amount increasing annually with inflation)
and you give the spreadsheet some hoped-for Final Portfolio (starting at some Initial Portfolio)
and it does this hundreds of times to see what fraction of these iterations
would yield a Final portfolio less than \$50K, or less than \$100K or \$500K
or even more than your hoped-for Final Portfolio :^)
(These amounts are the BreakPoints.)
See: http://home.golden.net/~pjponzo/Monte-Carlo.htm for "the Math"

Since it takes some time, you can ask for just ONE run (of umpteen hundred iterations you decide how may hundreds
or a collection of runs, using three different Stock/Bond splits and three different Investment Amounts
(that makes NINE scenarios, eh?).
There's also a chart of some sample portfolios.
The red graph on this chart is the deterministic portfolio evolution: it uses an Annualized Return
P.S. The software needs the Average (or Mean) annual returns. If you know the Annualized returns, you
can Click a Button and get 'em changed to Average.
Note: the (random) returns are Log-normally distributed but you can also ask for a Normal distribution.
This spreadsheet began life as a child of Richard Pritz with help from Peter Van and Peter Ponzo.

alized Volatility

## you decide how may hundreds)

ed returns, you

a Normal distribution.

You'll want to know how often your Final Portolio was greater
than (for example) \$100K or \$200K or \$300K, etc.
To allow you to do this, change the minimum amount in cell T2
and the increment in cell R5 like so:
The spreadsheet will calculate how often the Final Portfolio was
less than (for example) \$100K, \$200K, etc.
Neat, eh?

## Okay, here's another variant:

A standard Monte Carlo simulation uses a fixed Mean Return and Standard Deviation and Distribution (Normal? Log-norm
over the 10, 20, 30, etc. years considered by the simulation

## You don't like that?

Then how about selecting, for your Stock gain, at random, monthly gains from a collection of monthly gains of the S&P 50
from Jan, 1926 to May, 2001? (At last count, there's 905 of 'em and they live in column AI as "1+Monthly Return")
You like that? Remember, that includes the 1929 crash!!
You can put your own (1+MonthlyReturn) data in column AI. Just be sure to first delete the data that's there!
If you'd like to see the effect of that choice (where you don't assume some fixed Mean, Standard Deviation or Distribution,
but use real, live historical returns), then instead of typing N or L in cell B9, type S (for S&P, eh?).
The MC software will, when calculating an annual Stock gain, multiply together a dozen monthly selections
(at random, of course) from the collection of 905 S&P 500 gains (which live in column AI).
The annual Bond gain, however, will be the standard Log-normal distribution with your choice
of Mean and Standard Deviation.

P.S. For the past umpteen years (since 1926) appropriate, nominal (as opposed to inflation-adjusted) "annual" numbers ar
Average S&P Stock Return: 10.9% Standard Deviation: 20%
Bonds - 5 year U.S. treasuries: Average Return: 5.5% Standard Deviation: 6%
Correlation: 8%
