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.

We define a metric to measure options returns from the seller point of view, write an algorithm that simulates the sale of options and collects premiums of at-the-money european options at ex-ante market real prices (inflow of money to the seller of options), hold these contracts open until the original expiration, calculates the ex-post payoffs (outflow of money for the seller in case the option ends up in the money) and with that data calculating a realized return.
In equation (5), [R.sup.i.sub.t+k] is the realized return on a stock or portfolio i from time t to t+k.
In addition, businesses that implement fleet tracking typically realized return on investment in as little as one month.
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.
Specifically, over the last few years a very active research agenda into the direct (model-free) measurement of the realized return variation and covariation of financial assets at daily or even higher intraday frequencies has developed.

Simulation results, by converging to the average realized return over that particular sample period, obscure these unpleasant possibilities.
Since each observation has an equal probability of occurrence, each realized return is assigned a probability of 1/762.
This occurs because the cross-sectional distribution of security returns is right-skewed, and the size-adjusted returns are measured as the difference between the realized return and the mean return for all stocks in the same market capitalization decile.
