a) Backtest the performance of the ranking system above using:      Universe: S&P1500      Benchmark: S&P1500      Rebalancing Frequency: every 4 weeks      Number of buckets= 10      Slippage=0, minimum price = 3, Sector=All, Long

Copy-paste the bar chart with annualized returns over MAX time period.

b) Explain in as much detail as you can the calculations Portfolio123 does to generate the bar charts in item a).

c) Find the vector E[α] as of February 21 2015 using the ranking system above. Use a standard deviation of 2% per year. The spreadsheet Week3_Quiz_Q2 has useful data to answer this question.

d) IF you had a covariance matrix V for all stocks in the S&P 1500 Universe, describe how you would use Excel to find the long-only (i.e., no shorting allowed) portfolio that invests in the top 200 stocks according to your rankingsystem and hits a target Active Risk of 4% per year.
