Somehow I doubt that life will give me a $100k starting budget though

You take a weighted average of potential stock payoffs (probability of gain/loss x Rate of Return gain/loss) to get your Expected Rate of Returns, then figure out the standard deviations of the two stocks and pick the lower for a more conservative chance at making money, then figure out the Coefficient of Variations by dividing the standard deviations by the two Expected Rate of Returns to figure out the lower Co of V (lower ratio means better risk-return tradeoff),


then for your CAPM (capital asset pricing model), you compare the market premiums by taking the risk-free rate of return (whatever US Treasury bills are trading at) and compare it to the market (your beta coefficient) to get your required rate of return for investing in that, so:

Required ROR = free-risk + beta coefficient (market-risk - free-risk), and see if the stock is currently producing that ROR before purchasing it.


tl;dr: nobody knows... good strategy

Highly irrational investment decision, seeing as Moe's is objectively better.

if this were an investment, sure. but the goal is to grow your capital as much as possible within a month. 20% in a month is pr good returns. if i was being safe, I'd just throw most of it into some S&P index fund and maybe a few ETFs and do just as well/better over time than most people who micromanage their shit anyway.

True. justwanttosay who posts in the DT was the one that rec'd me that Fooled By Randomness book I posted there (which I'm just now starting out of boredom and putting off studies; guy is a phenomenal writer so far), but justwanttosay also gave me some tips about staying away from micro/small cap funds in favor or the larger ones.


I figured a bunch of random mid-cap stuff from a google search would be the best medium for 1/12-short-term investing and 'playing it safe'
