What would be an ideal way to estimate the covariance of an index with a basket of stocks? For example, should I use one-tail ANOVA test or an individual stock & index F-test?

    $\begingroup$ Is your comparison vs. the basket of 15 stocks as a whole or vs. each of the 15 individual stocks (the trivial case)? $\endgroup$ Jun 22 '11 at 3:55

It sounds like you are referring to measuring correlation and/or cointegration. May I suggest you take a look at another question with several answers. I believe it may include an answer to yours as well...
