Answer to Question #49703 in Finance for abdulla sabit
What is a better measure of risk if assets have different expected returns: (1) the standard deviation or (2) the coefficient of variation? Why?
Standard deviations can measure the probability that a value will fall within a certain range. For normal distributions, 68% of all values will fall within 1 standard deviation of the mean, 95% of all values will fall within 2 standard deviations, and 99.7% of all values will fall within 3 standard deviations. The coefficient of variation is a better measure of risk, quantifying the dispersion of an asset’s returns in relation to the expected return, and, thus, the relative risk of the investment. Hence, the coefficient of variation allows the comparison of different investments.
I don’t know how to thank this company ...y’all made my life so easy with school. Honestly it’s been tough to catch up with classes after giving birth and knowing how hard it would be to do my assignments. Never regret meeting this company at all! And I have referred almost all my family members who are currently in school struggling. I don’t know how much love I got for y’all. The customer service is an A+. Sometimes I say to myself “they are just too perfect” . Lol please keep up the good work.
