Determining the Optimal Portfolio • If we can plot the portfolio return vs. Portfolio volatility for all possible allocations (weights), then we can easily locate the optimal portfolio with the highest Sharpe ratio of (Rp - Rf)/(Vol of risky portfolio). • When we only have two risky assets, as in this case, it is easy to construct this graph by simply calculating the portfolio returns for all possible weights. • When we have more than 2 assets, it becomes more difficult to represent all possible portfolios, and instead we will only graph only a subset of portfolios. Here, we will choose only those portfolios that have the minimum volatility for a given return. We will call this graph the variance-return frontier. • Once we solve for this minimum variance frontier, we will show that there exists one portfolio on this frontier that has the highest Sharpe ratio, and thus is the optimal stock portfolio. • Because there exists one specific portfolio with the highest Sharpe ratio, all investors will want to invest in that portfolio. Thus, the weights that make up this portfolio determines the optimal allocation between the risky assets for all investors. 14
