Standard deviation and the risk-free rate of return are used to calculate or measure return based on the level of risk taken using what is called the Sharpe Ratio. Standard deviation is a measure of a portfolio’s total risk. The risk-free rate of return is usually the current rate of short-term Treasury bills. Correlation coefficient is a measure of how performance between different investments correlates. The conversion ratio is the number of shares of stock received when a convertible bond or preferred stock is converted by the holder.
