Szeto Abstract The effect of short time correlation in stock prices on a two-stock portfolio under the framework of Mean Variance Analysis is investigated. The theory of Markowitz on portfolio management, based on a long time scale analysis of return and variance, is first optimized over a selection of pair of stocks from the Hang Seng Index and then corrected by the return of short time scales of the stocks. Several choices of short time returns, from 1 to 5 days in the past, are studied. The cumulative return is highest when the returns of the two-stock portfolio in the past 2 days are included in the correction to the “modified Sharpe ratio”.

1%, and over a period of 620 days, the loss can be really great). During the months of financial tsunami (September–October 2008), the stock price and Hang Seng Index nosedive while our portfolio strategy is more or less immune to the crash, because we mainly keep cash. Our strategy initiates a timely withdrawal from the stock market, so that large loss is avoided. From November 2008 onward, the cumulative return is growing in pace with the stock price variation, indicating that during that rising period, the strategy can keep up with an early sign of bull market and take profits by investing in pair of good stocks, at a good combination provided by mean variance analysis with two time scales.
