Techniques of analysis:
1. Return:
Return on a typical investment consists of two components. The basic is the periodic cash receipts (or income) on the investment, either in the form of interest or dividends. The second component is the change in the price of the assets-commonly called the capital gain or loss. This element of return is the difference between the purchase price and the price at which the assets can be or is sold; therefore, it can be again or a loss.
The return has been calculated as under:
NAVt – NAVt-1
Portfolio return: Rit =---------------------------------
NAV t-1
Where Rit is the difference between Net Asset Values for two consecutive days dividend by the NAV of the preceding day.
