We only have access to US markets so everything you buy is in US markets.

Will HMY rise today? or am I better ofselling it? It's at -100, I don't want another VRNG.

edit: looking at those rankings you see how terrible it is. It's so much easier to lose stuff than to win it.

For anyone interested in diversifying their portfolio, look up the capital asset pricing model. If you find the Beta's on the internet, you can see which stocks are volatile and which are not, and which have a covariance by the average market (which is just the same).

You also can use the covariances and get the computer to spit you out some portfolio weights that give you the highest return given the lowest volatility

Though it is a pain in the butt to do

Yeah, but where do you get your data? These betas are supposed to be on the internet somewhere, according to my econometrics book. I just can't find them.

^one hours time

My lecturer made me go the long way for my assignment on this. My friend did a regression analysis on a whole block of 5 year data (my ipad crashed trying to load up the massive excel sheet) and got the beta from there.

This site seems to provide a few
http://www.abg-analytics.com/stock-betas.shtml

Actually, here's a pretty cool site
http://finviz.com/

Go to Screener and you can pretty much find any info you need on companies

Did he do a timeseries analysis using lagged values? Maybe even coupled with other economic data? Or did he just drew a straight line through the data?


edit: Or did he just calculate the capital asset pricing model?

Looking at data doesn't really help you in such a short time span. Unless maybe if you had already set up a giant network of models.
