Hello, What could be the choice if Alpha is 1 and Beta is lower but Standard Deviation is higher? This kind of scenario confuses. You have shown a scenario which has all goodies in it. Can you please show a comparison with other scenarios taken in mind?

Could you remove the annoying background music, more interested in content then music.
Learn to Invest (3 months ago)
For sure. I wish could. I've removed it in my more recent videos

How did u calculate alpha beta
Learn to Invest (7 months ago)
I actually just pulled alpha and beta off of morningstar.com for the funds I used.

Wonderful, and is my example above with the calculation of alpha correct by what you mean "total return" to be?
Learn to Invest (7 months ago)
Yes, for the sharpe ratio you want to use the total return.
TheDragonaf1 (7 months ago)
Okay that makes better seance. However in terms of the alpha for your video above (assuming you showed the S&P 500 for all three times lets say: "at 1 year return" S&P return = 13, "at 1 year return" S&P return = 14, "at 2 year return" S&P return = 15 Then by "total return" in this case do you mean (for fund 3) Alpha = (16.82+16.96+14.23) - (13+14+15) ? And if this number was lower than your annual risk free rate, you would invest in it? Also for the sharp ratio, again are you using a single value from the three times or the "total returns"?
Learn to Invest (7 months ago)
TheDragonaf1 so for alpha, a simple calculation is to take the total return (including dividends) of the fund and subtract the total return of the benchmark. Say the s&p 500. Beta is much trickier. That's why I say just pull it down from a data service like Morningstar. To calculate beta you need to do a regression analysis which compares volatility in the market to volatility in the fund. I hope this explains it well. If not, let me know, maybe I can make a clearer video on it. This video was my first and the background music really makes it tough to follow. Hopefully the other videos are clearer for you

As in say you have your three funds and you have 5 years of worth of returns in months, you have your S&P 500 (the market returns), and you have an annual risk free rate, can you physically calculate the alpha, beta etc... to see which fund is less risky and better to invest in? if yes, how?

did you even play the vid before posting, music is louder than the voice

Thanks so much !

I really appreciate the clear way that the information has been laid out. It should be laid out what type of investor the narrator is, however. In some cases, particularly with younger investors, when there is a long investment horizon volatility can be fine or even desirable. When you are Dollar Cost Averaging and rebalancing the account, the volatility can help get the best average prices for the funds you are buying. Also over a long time horizon, it is completely acceptable to take on more risk (within reason) to get a higher return.

Great point, I've tried to pay more attention to this discinction in some of my more recent videos. Thanks for the feedback.
