Question

Suppose that an investor wants to compare the risks associated with two different stocks. One way to measure the risk of a given stock is to measure the variation in the stock’s daily price changes. The investor obtains a random sample of 25 daily price changes for stock 1 and 25 daily price changes for stock 2. These data are provided in the file P09_20.xlsx. Explain why this investor can compare the risks associated with the two stocks by testing the null hypothesis that the variances of the stocks’ price changes are equal. Perform this test, using a 10% significance level, and interpret the results.
