Alpha and Beta Coefficients, CAPM, R-Square and Regression Analysis
Seeking Alpha or “beating” the market is the investor’s number one objective. What are the investors minimum return expectations, how is it compared to market and to other asset classes? This seminar will assess the risk or volatility of a portfolio of stocks to understand such movements versus market movements using regression analysis.
