The Sharpe ratio is commonly used as a means of calculating the performance of an investment after adjusting for its risk. This allows investments of different risk profiles to be compared against each other.

In the Sharpe Ratio, a higher value means greater returns for the portfolio relative to the inherent risk. This also means a better investment. Because of the simplicity of the formula, the Sharpe Ratio can be used to evaluate a single stock or an entirely diversified portfolio.

### Sharpe Ratio formula

Sharpe Ratio = (Rx – Rf) / StdDev Rx

where:

• Rx = Expected portfolio return
• Rf = Risk-free rate of return
• StdDev Rx = Standard deviation of portfolio return / volatility
