Abstract: This article is the term paper of the course Investments. We mainly focus on modeling long-term investment decisions of a typical utility-maximizing individual, with features of Chinese stock market in perspective. We adopt an OR based methodology with market information as input parameters to carry out the solution. Two main features of this article are: first, we take the no short-sell constraint in Chinese stock market into consideration and use an approach otherwise identical to Markowitz to work out the optimal portfolio choice; this method has critical and practical implication to Chinese investors. Second, we incorporate the benefits of multiple assets into one single well-defined utility function and use a MIQP procedure to derive the optimal allocation of funds upon each of them along the time-line.

Optimal Choice under Short Sell Limit with Sharpe Ratio as Criterion Among Multiple Assets Ruokun HUANG, Yiran SHENG

I. Background This article is for a problem described as follows: •

Suppose you are an investor – Just graduated – 200,000 annual salary – 500,000 saving

•

How to allocate your assets into: – Bank deposit – Treasures – Stocks – Mutual funds – Real estate – Others

The optimal choice of investment has long been a difficult problem for investors. The structure of people’s utility with respect to time and risk influences behaviors of various people. Along with the mainstream method used by scholars, we use well defined utility function to describe investor’s attitude toward risk and return. As we know, there are some existing theories describing the optimal investment choice, i.e. Markowitz method. However, most existing theories are based on relatively complete/perfect market, where short selling of assets is allowed. In our opinion, we must consider this short sell limit in order to avoid discrepancy, which may be large in a market with short sell limit. As a result, we are going to put forward our analysis under short sell limit on stock market.

II. Introduction In section III, we show the basic structure of our model and integrate strategy for different investment categories into one universal maximization problem. In section 3 / 17 January 4, 2010

Optimal Choice under Short Sell Limit with Sharpe Ratio as Criterion Among Multiple Assets Ruokun HUANG, Yiran SHENG

IV, we further discuss the Monte-Carlo simulation procedure of parameters used in section III. In section V, we give a detailed analysis on stock market with short sell constraint, using an approach otherwise identical to Markowitz. In section VI, we apply some data into our model and compute the results. Section VII concludes.

III.

Our Model-Overall View

To adequately characterize the long-run investment decision of a utility maximizing individual, we need to set up a discrete, multi-period model. We assume that the individual lives for M years, and that his lifetime well-being is determined by the yearend consumption of each period. Furthermore, we assume that he or she has time-additive and state-independent utilities. Thus, the maximization problem can be stated as follows: M

max{E (U k ( Dk ))} k 1

subject to feasible set of k Where Dk is his yearend consumption at kth period, Uk is his corresponding utility in kth year, and vector k is our investment strategy. For simplicity, we assume Uk has uniform structure and a discount factor r along the timeline, that is: U k e rk u( Dk )

Next, we will specify the investment strategy k . We classify our investments into four categories: risky assets, riskless asset (borrow), riskless asset (lend/save), house purchase and insurance product. Denote the money invested on each category in the kth year is jk . Notice insurance is invested only at time 0, we will simplify its purchased amount as 4 . Here we denote housing expense every year to be Hk.

However, since the strike event for insurance happens on an unpredictable date in some future time and may not be exactly the same yearend consumption realization 4 / 17 January 4, 2010

date. Therefore we need to make a little modification in the model, introducing a continuous random variable T called survive time which is the interval starts from time 0 until the strike event happens. We assume T follows some distribution F(t). Once the strike event happens, the person’s annual income drops from IH to IL. The expected utility gain from insurance is, L is the lump sum payment once the strike event happens: M

V E (e rT u (3 L)) e ru u (3 L) Pr[T du ] 0

With this factor included, the full model is: M M rk max ( k , H k ) E e u ( Dk ) e ru u 4 L Pr T du u House k 1 0

Where IH and IL are the given annual income, R1 is the random return on risky portfolio, R2 r is the risk free (borrow) rate, R3 r is the risk free (lend/save) rate, s is the yearly spread payment of insurance. D is the survival level annual consumption. Now suppose E(u( D)) aE ( D) b var( D) , the above equation becomes, assuming different category of assets are independent with each other: 5 / 17 January 4, 2010

Next, we are going to discuss the term Hk. In order to make our planning applicable for computer, we set up a binary vector B , where

0 , n o t b u y h o u s e a t t h i s y e a r Bk 1 , b u y h o u s e ( p a y i n i t i a l ) t h i s y e a r We can easily reach the result that:

We denote the transformation matrix as P Note that the optimization problem is just a quadratic problem like:

This is always applicable since P 0 .

Determination

of

Insurance

value

via

Monte-Carlo Stimulation In order to specify the mechanism of insurance product in a sense of its contribution to life-time utilities, we introduce a latent variable model. Suppose Y is a latent variable follows standard normal distribution. When Y falls below a critical value, the strike event in insurance contract happens, id est: Pr[T t ] F (t ) Pr[Y y] ( y)

Therefore there is a one-to-one mapping between Y and T:

T F 1 ((Y )) Since T is a rv in nature, we need to carry out a Monte-Carlo Stimulation to determine the expected utility gain from insurance products. Throughout this session we assume F(t)=1-e-ht; where h is a constant hazard rate, its mathematical meaning is the strike event conditional probability density at any time. T

log(1 (Y )) h

The following table gives input parameters for the stimulation: Parameters

For h =0.06, the probability that the strike event will not happen within 30 years 7 / 17 January 4, 2010

is about 17%. After 10000 stimulation runs over Y, we have V = 0.6629u(4L)

V. Our Model-Stock Market Optimal Choice under Short Sell Limit Firstly, in classical model, where short selling of assets is allowed, the optimal problem has simple solution as follows:

H B 2 Arf Crf 2 Actually under Markowitz’s world, it is the solution of the maximizing Sharpe Ratio. Here in our analysis, we also use Sharpe Ratio as a criterion of portfolio evaluation. However, we assume that short sell is limited, as in Chinese stock market. The mathematical description of our analysis is as follows: E rw rf w

max w

1T w 1, subject to wi 0, i There is no simple solution to this non-linear planning problem as that of Markowitz. Hereby we use software R (R Development Core Team, 2008), package 8 / 17 January 4, 2010

Optimal Choice under Short Sell Limit with Sharpe Ratio as Criterion Among Multiple Assets Ruokun HUANG, Yiran SHENG

Rdonlp2 to solve this problem. Secondly, there are too many stocks in the market, specifically more than 1600 in A share market. From a general view these stocks are to some extent homogeneous, since they are often highly related. In our analysis, for the convenience of coumputing, we choose several stocks from the same industry, id est 深发展 A (000001) from Financial Institution industry, et cetera. Hereby we choose 143 stocks from the 1600+ stocks in A share market, listed in Appendix A (page 12).

VI.

Computing Process and Numerical Result

The data we choose are as follows: Stock: 143 A stocks as in Appendix A (page 12). Utility discount rate: 3% Risk free rate (Borrow): 6.5% Risk free rate (Lend/save):2.5% House initial payment: $1,800,000 House annual payment: $150,000 (other input data are in Appendix B-R code)

The numerical result is: Choose these stocks as a mutual fund. 变量 No.

Buy house at year 6. Besides, the mutual fund has the frontier like:

The ‘straight line’ in the graph above is the original frontier without short sell limit, which appears to be much larger than our frontier. Note that that frontier is a parabolic curve at a proper scale.

VII. Conclusion a) Short sell limit plays an important role in Chinese stock market From the graph we showed above, we can see that with limit of short sell, the feasible set shrinks much compared to situation without short sell constraint. So, we must consider short sell limit in Chinese stock market. b) Stock market as an asset of investment should be careful considered In our optimal solution, mutual fund is invested at relatively a very low level. This implies one should better choose other investment assets other than stock. c) House purchase is the core of life due to large amount of utility it brings All the financing method in our analysis, including borrowing and saving, contribute to the ‘final target’ of buying a house. The optimal choice indicates one 11 / 17 January 4, 2010

Optimal Choice under Short Sell Limit with Sharpe Ratio as Criterion Among Multiple Assets Ruokun HUANG, Yiran SHENG

should save money for 5 years, and as long as he has enough or near to enough money, he purchases a house with small amount of loan. This solution is very close to modern Chinese young people. d) Further work to be done The overall utility assumption also has its limitations. The state independent assumption tends to be invalid since the insurance is introduced in this model. The utility of house can be decided by more factors. Besides, the period of house payment and/or payment structure should be flexible.
