Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

An investor trying to analyze how much an investment product will return on an annual basis. The investor can find the mean of the returns of a company over a certain number of years and is able to project how much return is expected for that particular year. Standard deviation helps the investor to understand how reliable the mean value is in predicting the expected investment of that year.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
