1. Calculating the expected return, standard deviation and geometric mean:
A B C D E F G
Average return 12.99%
5.16
% 3.88% 14.29% 16.18% 4.21% 18.91%
Standard deviation 12.78%
5.88
% 5.69% 15.98% 19.06% 5.95% 24.03%
Geometric mean returns 12.28%
5.00
% 3.74% 13.25% 14.78% 4.04% 16.75%
There is relevant relationship between the arithmetic mean and geometric mean, where
the arithmetic mean only averages the overall returns of the stock. On the other hand, geometric
mean provides compounding value of the returns, which is more precise and accurate. The above
valuation indicates that the average mean is higher than the geometric mean, as the total returns
of the assets are compounded.
