# Cumulative returns per porfolio

Dear Sas members,

I have two stocks per portfolio which I randomly selected.Each stock stays three days in the portfolio and have returns per day. Then the stocks are sold and are invested in the new portfolio.

So I have trouble in porgramming the following;

1) for every portfolio I have to calculate the cumulative return per stock (ok, works for me)

2) At the end of the portfolio (day 3) the stocks are sold and I have to sum the cumulative returns, divide it by two and reinvest it equally in the next two stocks of portfolio 2, and so on.

I have difficulties implementing step 2...

I have uploaded sample data in the attachement;

this is my code for step 1

proc

sort data=WORK.QUERY_FOR_RETURNS out

=RENDER;

by

PORT STOCK DATE;

run

;

data

POD_100;

set

RENDER;

by

PORT STOCK;

*Calculating the retunr per stock in the portfolio;

if first.stock then do

;

if ret=. then cumret=1

;

end

;

else if ret NE . then do

;

cumret=cumret*ret+cumret;

end

;

retain

cumret;

run

;

I am not 100% sure about what you asked for. Here just to start discussion, if you are after the initial investment for each company:

data want (drop=_: cumret);

do until (last.port);

set have;

by port stock date;

if first.port then do;

_d=_c;

_c=0;

invest=_d/2;

end;

if first.stock then

cumret=1;

cumret+cumret*ret;

if last.stock then _c+cumret;

output;

end;

run;

Thanks,

But i should have the cumulative return of each stock in portfolio 1. After portfolio 1 the cumulative return of the stocks should be taken (summed/2) and invested against the returns of the stocks of portfolio 2 and so on.

kind regards,

Stefaan

I am still not sure I have completely understand what you want. I thought my solution could do what you just asked. if you could just post several line of data to show what your wanted table look like, that would definitely help.
