# Realized return

## Realized return

The return that is actually earned over a given time period.

## Realized Gain

The amount by which the sale price of an asset exceeds its purchase price. Unless the realized gain came from a tax-exempt or tax-deferred asset, it is taxable. However, the type of taxation to which it is subject varies according to how long the asset has been owned. A realized gain from an asset owned longer than one year is usually taxed at the capital gains rate, while an asset owned for a period shorter than a year is often subject to the higher income tax rate. It is also called the recognized gain. See also: Unrealized gain.

Measure 2 more closely aligns income and wealth by excluding these items, but may underestimate the realized return on capital for decedents whose businesses paid them a salary.
The marginal distribution of return on A always dominates the corresponding distribution on B, and the only rationale for allocating funds to the second asset (B) follows from the possibility that realized return on A would be low when the return on B is high; that is, from nonperfect correlation in returns.
In Equations (7) to (10) [R.sub.i,t] is the realized return on stock i in month t, [logME.sub.i,t-1] is the natural logarithm of market equity for firm i in month t - 1, log([BE.sub.i,t-1]/[ME.sub.i,t-1]) is the natural logarithm of the ratio of book value of equity to market value of equity for firm i in month t - 1, [[beta].sup.realized.sub.i,t-1] is the lagged realized beta of stock i in month t - 1, and [[beta].sup.AR.sub.i,t|t-1], [[beta].sup.MA.sub.i,t|t-1], and [[beta].sup.GARCH.sub.i,t|t-1] are the conditional expected beta of stock i in month t estimated with the information set at month t - 1.
