A stock has had returns of 8 percent, 26 percent, 18 percent, −14 percent, 26 percent, and −6 percent over the last six years.

What are the arithmetic and geometric returns for the stock?

Arithmetic: 58% (sum of the percents)

Geometric: 38.6% (1.08*1.26*.86*1.26*.94-1)

you r wrong the Arithmetic sum of the percents then divided by the years so the answer is 9.67

the geometric 1.08*1.26*1.18*0.86*1.26*0.94^1/6-1 = ???

I don't know how to calculate the power ! do you know ?

It is arithmetic returns, not mean. I believe it is total returns.

No, you are right. to calculate the power submit it into google with parentheses around the power and the thing being powered

I am sure about the steps could you calculate the the geometric as i indicated because Idon't know how to do the power

8.55%. sorry about the errors earlier.
