13) Why do the arithmetic average return and the geometric return differ?

Answer: The arithmetic average return does not take what the value of the investment was at the

start of each period. Hence, even though a company may have the same arithmetic return for two

consecutive years, the dollar amount of those returns will be different in later years than in the

first year. For instance, if the investor started with $1,000, and earned 20% the first year, lost

20% the second year, and earned 15% the third year, the average arithmetic return would be 5%,

and the 20% gain the first year would be $200, but the 20% loss the second year would be $240.

The investment would be worth $1104 after three years, giving an average geometric return of

3.35%, different from the average arithmetic return.

6) Under the efficient market hypothesis, would securities be properly priced.

Answer: If markets were perfectly efficient, then investors would price a stock based on the

company's expected future cash flows, so at any time the security would be properly priced. If

good news becomes available, that would tend to increase the expected cash flows to a company,

the stock price will go up, meaning that the new price is then the proper price for the stock.

7) Are markets moving toward being more efficient or toward being less efficient?

Answer: Empirical evidence shows that since about the year 2000 pricing anomalies have

diminished considerably. Hedge funds have been trying to exploit pricing inefficiencies, and by

doing so, eliminate the inefficiencies. Hence, the market appears to be becoming more efficient

over time.
