Risk vs. Return Since Inception
This figure, a staple of the hedge fund world, can be used in many ways. At its simplest, the figure shows the risk that you might buy the ticker at the wrong time of year. The X axis shows the degree of variance in the monthly returns of the ticker, where higher variance (tickers on the right half of the figure) means greater chances of buying the ticker in a month that results in a significant loss--even if the ticker is generally positive over long periods of time. The top left region of the figure is optimal: Tickers with high annual returns and low month-to-month variance in returns. The bottom right of the figure is the worst region: Tickers with very high month-to-month variation in returns and low overall annual returns. The bottom left region and the top right region are areas that are suitable for different investment strategies: If you can be satisfied with a lower overall return as the price of not having to worry about buying in a bad month of the year and taking a significant short-term loss, then the bottom left region is for you. If you can weather the month-to-month variations and not flinch at shorter term losses because you are willing to ride the stock to higher overall long term returns, then the top right region is more suitable for you.
