Hello I think there is an error on the reading Page 10 of the study note on Bodie's Performance evaluation.
The 3% here should be the sample estimate of non-systemic risk and not the standard error?

Hi all,
I am not sure if that is a mistake. In the study notes of Ang´s Chapter 7 "Factors" on page 28 the Farma-French HML factor is explained.

I am confused about the details given on Value and growth stocks there. I expected the correct phrase would be something like this:

"The variable generally captures the strategy of either buying stocks when prices are low (as measured by a high book-to-market value) or when prices are high (as measured by a low book-to-market value)."

Value stocks have a high book-to-market ratio and therefore are "undervalued", their price are relatively low. Growth stocks have a low book-to-market value and therefore are "overvalued", their price are relatively high.
