índice de Jensen apresenta a maior diversificação quanto mais próximo de zero for seu valor, já que ele representa, de certa forma, o ganho obtido pela ocorrência de risco não sistemático.

Mas este valor de α não deve ser negativo, pois quanto mais negativo, pior. Assaf Neto (2011) destaca que valores positivos indicam um bom desempenho do ativo, isto por que ao se obter um valor positivo o ativo apresentou desempenho melhor do que o esperado pelo CAPM. Um fator que merece destaque é o de que o índice Jensen não pode ser utilizado para comparar o desempenho de ativos diferentes, a não ser que eles estejam ajustados quanto ao risco, para isto costuma-se dividir o α pelo β. Ao comparar o índice de Jensen com o de Treynor e o de Sharpe, Reilly e Brown (2003) mostram que tanto Treynor quanto Jensen utilizam apenas o risco sistemático, enquanto Sharpe utiliza o risco total. Desta forma, é esperado que a ordenação gerada pelo índice de Treynor e pelo de Jensen seja semelhante. Já quando comparados com o valor gerado pelo índice de Sharpe esta ordenação deve apresentar diferença.


No primeiro momento foi realizado um levantamento bibliográfico sobre os princípios da diversificação de carteiras de ativos, além dos índices de Sharpe, Treynor e Jensen. Após isto, a empresa foi analisada detalhadamente, verificando as mudanças ocorridas entre os anos de 2006 á 2011 e como estas interferiram no comportamento da mesma. Este intervalo de 2006 a 2011 foi escolhido pois os dados disponibilizados pela empresa envolviam apenas este período, além disso as informações foram coletadas por trimestres, que representa a menor periodicidade possível, para se ter uma maior confiabilidade dos dados. Como a empresa escolhida para a pesquisa possui o capital aberto, estas informações foram obtidas diretamente dos relatórios e demonstrações financeiras da empresa.…...

The Sharpe Ratio and the Information Ratio

...The Sharpe Ratio and the Information Ratio Sharpe Ratio and Information Ratio used to determine the risk-adjusted return of an investment portfolio. Sharpe Ratio The Sharpe Ratio introduced a method of assessing manager performance relative to risk taken. Sharpe Ratio centres on the use of a RFR, this places all mangers on a level playing field regardless of style. (Expected Portfolio Return – RFR) / Portfolio Standard Deviation Hypothetically, investors should always be able to invest government bonds and obtain the RFR. The sharpe ratio determines the expected realized return over that minimum. Within the risk-reward framework of portfolio theory, higher risk investment should produce high returns. As a result, a high Sharpe ratio indicates superior risk adjusted performance. Sharpe ratio measures a portfolio’s added value relative to its total risk. (A portfolio of risk free assets or one with an excess return of zero would have a Sharpe ratio of zero.) Sharpe ratio was based on portfolio theory, it is designed to be applied to investment strategies that have normal expected return distributions, it is not suitable for measuring investments that are expected to have asymmetric returns. Information Ratio (Portfolio Return – Benchmark Return) / Tracking Error or Active Return/Active Risk (Portfolio Return – Benchmark Return) referred to as the active return. The IR uses the SD of active returns as a measure of risk instead of the SD of the...

Bayer an Analysis

...BAYER AG A Financial Analysis Executive Summary This paper tries to analyse the financial strength of Bayer AG and the other aspects associated with its capital structure and dividend policy. The organisation has been trying to change its financial structure to a management-driven one. This is evident from the reduction in the share capital of the organisation and the rise of debt capital, which it has been using efficiently to reduce its tax burden and control the overall cost of capital of the firm.

Alex Sharpe Client Letter

...E Summit Street Kent, Ohio 44240 February 1, 2007 Ms. Alex Sharpe Rhodes Rd Columbus, Ohio 43201 Dear Ms. Shape: I’m writing to give you some recommendations on your investment strategy on behalf of the College of Business Administration of Kent State University. From the information that you provided to us, I found that you want to pursue a more active investment strategy by adding stocks to your current equity portfolio in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund. And you are interested in the Hasbro and Reynolds. So I have done some analysis on the possible combination of these stocks. First, I did a summary statistics of the three assets base on the latest five years’ worth of monthly returns for Vanguard S&P 500 Index Fund, R.J. Reynolds and Hasbro. Among those return data, the Vanguard has a maximum return of 34.46% and a minimum return of -10.14. The Reynolds has a maximum return of 112.49 and a minimum return of -31.48. The Hasbro has a maximum return of 71.03 and a minimum return of -15.36. The result turns out that the Reynolds has the highest average return as 1.87% with a highest stand-alone risk measured by the standard deviation which is 8.116, while the Vanguard has the lowest average return as 0.57% with a lowest standard deviation 3.602 which means the lowest stand-alone risk. The sum of the five years’ returns for Vanguard is 34.46%, 112.49% for Reynolds, and 71.03% for Hasbro. So we can see that Reynolds has higher return together with a higher...

Dream Analysis

...DREAM ANALYSIS This reflective essay illustrates Freud’s theory of dream analysis. It will begin with a brief overview of Freudian dream theory and will go on to describe the various components of personality structure and the unconscious from a psychodynamic perspective. This essay will analyse one of my personal dreams using Freud’s dream analysis theory and conclude with a critical reflection on the application of his theory as it relates to my dream. When Freud famously referred to dreams as being the ‘royal road to the unconscious’, he meant that dreams were a way in which to access the unconscious mind. Dream analysis in psychoanalysis is the process used to explore the role dreams play in the unconscious (Corey, 2005). The purpose of Freud’s theory of dream analysis is to gain better access to the unconscious in order to bring it into the conscious (Day, 2008). Freud believed that the mind represses painful events that the conscious does not want to remember due to the pain and anxiety they cause (Scharf, 2008). These repressed desires and motivations are freed through dreams which are a direct connection to the unconscious. Freud saw the unconscious as sexual and instinctual in nature and the dream as a disguised unfulfilled wish (Welsh, 1994). To better understand the dynamics between the conscious and the unconscious parts of the mind, Freud (1994) developed the structural model of the psyche which he called “the psychic apparatus”. Freud proposed that the part...

Susan Griffin Case Study Analysis

...FINANCE Investments and Portfolio Management Team Case Study Analysis Susan Griffin: Formulation of a Long-Term Investment Strategy TEAM X Case Overview Susan Griffin, owner and CEO of Griffin Incorporated, was planning to sell the company. Despite the success of her company, she was 62 years old and wanted to be free of the responsibilities and retire. Working with her bank advisors, indications estimated the sale to be worth about $10 million. She was currently earning good income from the operations of her company. Prior to the sale, most of her wealth was held in company stock; however, with the sale of the company most of her holdings would be converted into liquid assets that need to be invested and managed (See Exhibit 1 for Assets). Now Susan would need to decide how to allocate her investments in a way that would allow her to continue to live comfortably and also cover her family’s financial needs. Therefore, the analysis provided within the case study covers the method and recommendation on how Susan should invest and manage her portfolio and in what proportion the investment should be allocated toward the various options available. Key Assumptions In order to properly evaluate Susan’s scenario and develop her optimal portfolio, several assumptions must be defined. These assumptions are detailed in the list below: 1. Susan’s required annual income equates to $438,143 (before......

Beta Case Analysis

...Beta Definition Beta coefficient is a measure of systematic risk and volatility of an investment portfolio or security. The coefficient is then compared to that of the whole market. It is arrived at by using regression analysis where the value represents how an investment’s return responds to market fluctuations. (Richard Loth, 2007) Application Going by Beta’s definition, a market has a standard beta of 1. Individual securities and portfolios are then measured based on how much they deviate from the market given beta value of 1. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 shows that the price of the investment is moving in tandem with that of the market. When the beta is below 1.0, it indicates that the investment is less volatile than that of the market. If greater than 1.0, it indicates that the price of the investment is more volatile than the market price. For instance, a portfolio with a beta of 1.3, basically means that it is 30% more volatile than the market price. Investors that are conservative and keen in preserving capital should therefore focus on securities and portfolios with low betas. On the other hand, if the investor is out for risk with higher returns, they should focus on investments with high betas. Advantages Beta has a couple of advantages especially in the role that it plays in Capital Asset Pricing Model assessment of risk. It is easy to work with beta since it gives a clear and quantifiable measure. As a result of its efficiency, it is commonly used......

Project Style Analysis

...Style and Portfolio Performance Evaluation Project FI 8240 Global Portfolio Management Fall Semester 2015, Dr. Kini Lan Luo Thuy Tien Ho Xiangbo Sun SUMMARY We have developed style and portfolio performance evaluation based on our analysis from Excel results for mutual fund A, B and C. In this analysis two different passes were made, where the major change was the number of indices used in creation of the style analysis model. In the first pass the indices used were the large cap sp500, mid cap md400, small cap sc600, which are all commonly used proxies for the market in which the investor is operating, and the risk free rate. In this analysis, the predicted return using a weighted average of the market indices, the error between the investor’s actual return and predicted return, the sum of this error, the variance on this error (residual variance), and the variance on the return itself were determined from the data provided. By using Excel’s Solver tool, the minimum residual variance was determined by changing the weights of the market indices and thus creating an opportunity for the predicted return values to approach (converge) to the actual return and obtain a more optimal portfolio. This in turn provides the analyst with the tools to determine how well the model can predict the overall variance in the actual return of an investment in a particular fund. Once the optimal weights are determined, the variances stated above are used to determine the percentage......

Portfolio Analysis

...FINANCE PORTFOLIO ANALYSIS FINAL WORK DESCRIPTIVE ANALYSIS AND APPLICATION OF THE PORTFOLIO THEORY Abstract The main objective of the work is to construct, through application of the Portfolio theory, an efficient frontier which represents a set of portfolios with optimum risk-return ratio for ten companies from Mexican IPC. The sample used in this work is composed of the most representative companies in this index. A descriptive analysis of the behavior of the stocks included in this study is carried out using the binomial risk-return, which significantly contributes in selecting the most suitable stocks to be included in the portfolio. The work is concluded with finding an optimal portfolio for a risk adverse investor. The main conclusions from study are the poor performance of the construction sector, which holds the lowest returns, the highest risk and negative performance ratios, and the usefulness of the theory of portfolios to get a set of portfolios with higher returns and lower risk than the general Mexican IPC index that represents the market. The importance of diversification of assets is also noted. Keywords: Portfolio theory, Efficient Frontier, Risk-Return, Minimum Variance, Portfolio Contents 1.

Alex Sharpe Portfolio represents the sensitivity of a stock’s return to the return on the market portfolio. 
Beta Formula ß= (∂im)/(∂2m) 
 Using the excel formula “SLOPE”, the resulting Beta (slope) is: | REYNOLDS | HASBRO | Beta | 0.7358 | 1.4198 | 4. How might the expected return of each stock relate to its riskiness? 
 The expected return for each stock is related to its risk degree, and for this we can use the Capital Assent Pricing Model (CAPM). This formula is used to measure the expected return of the portfolio. This relationship can be described as a direct one. In Q1, we can compare SP500 and Reynolds, where Reynolds has a higher expected return and standard deviation. 
 5. In what stock(s) (if any) should Sharpe invest? He should definitively invest in Reynolds, as it has a higher expected return than investing 100% in S&P 500 and also a lower risk. In comparison with investing 1% in Reynolds instead of Hasbro, the expected return is also higher and the risk is lower....
