Investment returns
The rate of return on an investment can be calculated as follows:
Return =
(Amount received – Amount invested) ________________________ Amount invested

For example, if \$1,000 is invested and \$1,100 is returned after one year, the rate of return for this investment is: (\$1,100 - \$1,000) / \$1,000 = 10%.

What is investment risk?
Two types of investment risk
Stand-alone risk Portfolio risk

Investment risk is related to the probability of earning a low or negative actual return. The greater the chance of lower than expected or negative returns, the riskier the investment.

Why is the T-bill return independent of the economy? Do T-bills promise a completely risk-free return?
T-bills will return the promised 5.5%, regardless of the economy. No, T-bills do not provide a completely risk-free return, as they are still exposed to inflation. Although, very little unexpected inflation is likely to occur over such a short period of time. T-bills are also risky in terms of reinvestment rate risk. T-bills are risk-free in the default sense of the word.

How do the returns of HT and Coll. behave in relation to the market?
HT – Moves with the economy, and has a positive correlation. This is typical. Coll. – Is countercyclical with the economy, and has a negative correlation. This is unusual.

Calculating the expected return
^

r = expected rate of return r = ∑ ri Pi i =1 ^ N

^

r HT = (-27%) (0.1) + (-7%) (0.2) + (15%) (0.4) + (30%) (0.2) + (45%) (0.1) = 12.4%

Summary of expected returns
HT Market USR T-bill Coll. Expected return 12.4% 10.5% 9.8% 5.5% 1.0%

HT has the highest expected return, and appears to be the best investment alternative, but is it really? Have we failed to account for risk?

Comments on standard deviation as a measure of risk
Standard deviation (σi) measures total, or stand-alone, risk. The larger σi is, the lower the probability that actual returns will be closer to expected returns. Larger σi is associated with a wider probability distribution of returns.
