E. Overall Evaluation on the Three Weeks Performance of Four Portfolios
GO TO Sheet 5 of your excel file, get 14 observations of portfolio returns for each of your four portfolios. Also, get the S&P500 returns from the Blackboard. First, provide the table of mean, variance, STDV, and CV of your four portfolio returns and S&P500 returns. Also, provide the plot of the five return series. Then, compare them in terms of risk-return relation. Second, using the three measures of portfolio performance (Treynorâ€™s measure, Sharpeâ€™s ratio, and Jensenâ€™s alpha), compare and explain overall performance of your four portfolios. For each portfolio, was your portfolio performance affected relatively more by economic factors or by firm-specific factors? Is there any significant difference in performance among the different portfolios? If any, which portfolio is the best and worst? Explain it.
You make a summary of your report with important facts that you have observed. Is there any important knowledge or lessons that you have learned from this project? Finally, make your own argument as the conclusion of your project.
Here, you attach all Excel Spread Sheets
Three measures of portfolio performance:
A. Treynorâ€™s measure = PfPBetaRr- , where )(),(MMPPrVARrrCOVBeta=
B. Sharpeâ€™s ratio = PfPSTDVRr-
C. Jensenâ€™s alpha = MPrr-,
where Pr is portfolio returns and Mr is market returns (S&P500 returns).
Also, use %0=fR.
