Arithmetic return is over 1 period. Over long run, geometric return is what matters. Higher vol drags down geometric return. Ex: Heads win 50%, tails lose 40%. You would obviously play this one time (actually more) but if you have to play forever you will mathematically go broke.

He is maximizing the geometric return (not leveraged) β geometric mean frontier and solve for peak

Optimal Kelly = maximum sharpe ratio portoflio (so have to leverage)

### Key Takewaways:

- Geometric return is all that matters in long run
- If two assets have same geo return, mix them 50/50, correlations and variance do not matter
- Negative correlation helps, positive hurts. Can include -ve return assets if they hvae -ve correlation.
- Variance is additive, standard deviations are not (for calcing SD of a portfolio)

### Geometric Return Formulas:

GR = Geometric Return, AR = Arithmetic Return

**Kelly Criterion, Generalized**

W = win probability

B = loss %

A = gain %

**Kelly Growth Factor Formula: **

Flip a coin. Heads you win 50%, tails you lose 40%. How much do you bet?

Name | Win % | Win Amount | Loss Amount | Bet Size | Gain Factor |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Game 1 | 10% | 2,000% | 100% | 0 | 1 |

Tail Puts | 70% | 50% | 100% | NaN | NaN |

MU call Spreads | 90% | 100% | 100% | 0 | 1 |

**Simple Examples**

Coin has 60% chance of heads, 40% tails. You win 1 when heads, lose 1 when tails. In this case, bet 60-40 or 20% of bankroll each time.

If you got 2:1 odds (make $2 when heads, lose $1 when tails) then bet 40%. You take 40% and divide it by 2 (20%). Subtract 60% cahnce of winning from 20% chance of losing (with odds) and bet 40%.

If odds were reversed (lose 2 tails, make 1 heads). Take the 40% chance of losing, divide by .5 (80%). 60-80 = NEGATIVE 20 so you dont bet
