## 6.1 Diversification and Portfolio Risk

Spreading an investment across assets (and

## thereby forming a portfolio) is diversification.

Why?
This reduction in risk arises because worse than

## expected returns from one asset are offset by better

than expected returns from another

## Diversifiable vs. systematic risk

Does risky assets always lead to risky portfolio?
Can we diversify systematic risk?
Will diversifiable risk be rewarded?

## Approach1: Treating a Portfolio as a Single Security

-20.2=40%*(-37)+ 60%*(-9)

## 1. Treat the portfolio as a

new fund (one single
security),
2. Calculate the portfolio
return using weighted
average,
3. Calculate expected
return just like that for any
single security.
(See PPT #7,8 example)

## Figure 6.5 The Opportunity Set of a Portfolio with Stock

and Bond Fund, and a Fisk-free Assets
When we add the risk-free asset to an efficient portfolio,
the resulting opportunity set is the straight line Capital
Allocation Line (CAL) (refer to Chapter 5).

## 6.3 The Optimal Risky Portfolio with a Risk-Free Asset

So the question of finding the optimal risky

## portfolio given a risk-free asset is equivalent to

looking for the CAL with highest reward-to-risk
ratio or steepest slope.
Slope of CAL is Sharpe Ratio of Risky Portfolio
Equation (6.8)

## Optimal Risky Portfolio

Which portfolio leads to the highest Sharpe ratio ( or
steepest slope)?

## 6.3 Finding the Optimal Risky Portfolio O

To find the composition of the optimal risky portfolio

## O, we search for the weights in the stock and bond

funds that maximize the portfolios Sharpe ratio.
With only two risky assets, the optimal portfolio
weights:
wB

[ E (rB ) rf ] S2 [ E (rs ) rf ] B S BS
[ E (rB ) rf ] S2 [ E (rs ) r f ] B2 [ E (rB ) rf E (rs ) rf ] B S BS

## The Complete Portfolio C in CALo Line

We can find return and risk for any portfolio in CALo
line.
For example: portfolio C consists of 45% in risk-free
asset, 55% in optimal portfolio O.
From chapter 5, return and risk for portfolio C given the
risky portfolio (y) and risk-free asset (1-y):
E(rC) = rf + y[E(rp) rf ]
C = yrp
E(rC) = 3% +.55*(7.16-3)=5.29%

C = .55*10.15=5.58%

## 6.5 Using Security Analysis with Index Model

Suppose that you are a portfolio manager in charge of the

## endowment of a small charity. Without the resources to

engage in security analysis, you would choose a passive
portfolio comprising one or more index funds and T-bills.
Denote this portfolio as M. You estimate its standard
deviation as M and risk premium as RM
Now you find that you have sufficient resources to perform

## fundamental analysis on one stock, say Google. You

beta (G) and residual SD, (eG), against the benchmark
portfolio M. How should you proceed?
You can construct the optimal portfolio from M and Google
using Equation 6.10.

## 6.5 Using Security Analysis with Index Model

We can simplify and find the position of Google in the

## optimal risky portfolio in two steps:

Step 1:

Equation (6.16)

Step 2:
1 Sharpe ratio is improved as seen below:
Where:

Equation (6.17)

40

6-40

## 6.5 Using Security Analysis with Index Model

In this case, Google is viewed as the active

portfolio.
If there is more than one stock, then you can form
a portfolio with these stocks as your active
portfolio, then mix it with the passive index.
You can use Equation 6.18-6.20 to find the
weights of the optimal portfolio O, its Sharpe
ratio, composition of the active portfolio, alpha,
beta, etc.
