Decision Making and the Investment Horizon
Mean-variance and stochastic dominance efficiency analysis, the stock’s beta, and portfolio performance measures are all based on rates of return: historical rates of return in the case of ex-post analysis or true rates of return in the case of ex-ante analysis. In turn, rates of return are calculated on the basis of the investment horizon. In this chapter we investigate the extent to which the stochastic dominance efficient sets as well as other widely used portfolio analyses depend on the selected investment horizons.
