Do you believe that the composition of the market portfolio that you have found is a desirable or practical one as an investment?

Explain why or why not, based on the positions of your stocks.

I have 30 stocks that I'm analysing and found the market portfolio (tangency portfolio) to have these statistics: Mean=0.03972, S.d=0.0568.

How would I know if the market portfolio is desirable or practical? What should I be looking for exactly?

There are many things to consider but if my assumption is correct that this question is asked as part of some class I’d mention the following two aspects first:

  • The risk-return or Sharpe ratio of this portfolio compared to alternative investments
  • The weights of the portfolio. What would it imply if some of them are significantly smaller than zero or larger than one?
