
If n or N is odd, the median is the middle number
If n or N is even, the median is the average of the
two middle numbers

Using z
scores to evaluate performance
(Example)
The industry in which sales rep Bill works has
average annual sales of $2,500,000 with a
standard deviation of $500,000.
The industry in which sales rep Paula works has
average annual sales of $4,800,000 with a
standard deviation of $600,000.
Last year Rep Bill’s sales were $4,000,000 and
Rep Paula’s sales were $6,000,000.
Which of the representatives would you hire if
you had one sales position to fill?

Chap 3-25
SHARPE RATIO

Sharpe ratio = (Prr – RFrr)/Srr

Where:



Prr = Annualized average return on the portfolio
RFrr = Annualized average return on risk free
proxy
Srr = Annualized standard deviation of average
returns
Sharpe R = (10.5 – 2.5)/ 3.5 = 2.29
Generally, the higher the better.
Chap 3-26
SORTINO RATIO

Sortino Ratio = (Prr – RFrr)/Srr(downside)

Where:





Prr = Annualized rate of return on portfolio
RFrr= Annualized risk free annualized rate of
return on portfolio
Srr(downside) = downside semi-standard
deviation
Sortino = (10.5-2.5)/ 2.5 = 3.20
Doesn’t penalize for positive upside returns
which the Sharpe ratio does
Chap 3-27
Shape of a Distribution

Describes how data is distributed

Measures of shape

Symmetric or skewed
Left-Skewed
Mean < Median < Mode
Symmetric
Mean = Median =Mode
Right-Skewed
Mode < Median < Mean
Chap 3-28
Ethical Considerations
Numerical descriptive measures:



Should document both good and bad results
Should be presented in a fair, objective and
neutral manner
Should not use inappropriate summary
measures to distort facts
Chap 3-29
