- Trader in energy stocks
- random variable Y = value of share
- want estimates µy, σY
- Y = ß0 + ß1X+

- unbiased estimates
- efficient estimates

- Types of estimators
- Point estimates
- µ = 7

Unbiased Estimator of Population Parameter

estimator expected value = to population parameter

Population Parameters:

Sample Parameters:

are unbiased estimates

Expected value of standard deviation not unbiased

- Efficient Estimator –
if distributions of two statistics same

more efficient estimator = smaller variance

efficient = smallest variance of all unbiased estimators

Target

Estimates which are efficient and unbiased

Not always possible

often us biased and inefficient

easy to obtain

Point Estimate

single number

Interval Estimate

between two numbers.

- X = value of share
- sample mean is $32
- volatility is known σ2 = $4.00
- confidence interval for share value
- Need
- estimator for mean
- need statistic with
- mean of population
- estimator

- P(-1.96 < <1.96) = 95%

2.5%

- P(-1.96 < <1.96) = 95%
- P(-1.96 < <1.96 ) = 95%
- P(-1.96 -X < -µ <1.96 - X ) = 95%
- Change direction of inequality
- P(+1.96 +X > µ > -1.96 + X ) = 95%

- P(+1.96 +X > µ > -1.96 + X ) = 95%
- Rearrange
- P(X - 1.96 < µ <X + 1.96 ) = 95%
- Plug in sample values and drop probabilities
- X = value of share, sample = 64
- sample mean is $32
- volatility is σ2 = $4
- {32 – 1.96*2/64, 32 + 1.96*2/64} = {31.51,32.49}

- Take a sample
- point estimate
- compute sample mean
- interval estimate – 0.95 (95%+) = (1 - 0.05)
- X +/-1.96
- X +/-Zc
- (Z<Zc) = 0.975 = (1 – 0.05/2)
- 95% of intervals contain
- 5% of intervals do not contain

- interval estimate – 0.95 (95%+) = (1 - 0.05)
- X +/-Zc
- (Z<Zc) = 0.975 = (1 – 0.05/2)
- interval estimate – (1-) %
- X +/-Zc
- (Z<Zc) = (1 – /2)
- % of intervals don’t contain
- (1- )% of intervals do contain

(Z<Zc) = 0.975 = (1 – 0.05/2)

Common values for corresponding to various confidence levels used in practice are:

x is population with density function f(x,)

if know - know the density function

2 where = degrees of freedom

Poisson λxe-λ/x! = λ (the mean)

If sample independently from f n times

x1, x2, . . .xn

a sample

if consider all possible samples of n

a sampling distribution

If sample independently from f n times

x1, x2, . . .xn

a sample

if consider all possible samples of n

a sampling distribution

called likelihood function

which maximizes the likelihood function

Derivative of L with respect to and setting it to 0

Solve for

Usually easier to take logs first

log(L) = log(f(x1,) + log(f(x2,)+ . . .+ log(f(xn,)

log(L) = log(f(x1,) + log(f(x2,) +. . .+ log(f(xn,)
