The first three tables in Universal Portfolios presents the same information in numerical form as some of the plots.  The following code generates all three tables by defining a function then calling it with suitable parameters.  The output is text only, so does not match the typography of the original.


# tables 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 of Cover “Universal Portfolios”
require(logopt)
x <- nyse.cover.1962.1984


ShowTable <- function(a,b) {
cat(sprintf(“%s versus %s\n”, a, b))
cat(sprintf(“——————\n”))
cat(sprintf(“b            Sn(b)\n”))
cat(sprintf(“——————\n”))
xab <- x[,c(a,b)]
nDays <- dim(xab)[1]
Days <- 1:nDays
alphas <- seq(0,1,by=0.05)
crps <- alphas
for (i in 1:length(crps)) {
  crps[i] <- crp(xab, c(1-alphas[i], alphas[i]))[nDays]
  cat(sprintf(“%.2f     %9.4f\n”,1-alphas[i], crps[i]))
}
cat(sprintf(“——————\n”))
cat(sprintf(“Target wealth: Sn* = %.4f\n”,max(crps)))
cat(sprintf(“Best rebalanced portfolio: bn* = %4.2f\n”,1-alphas[which.max(crps)]))
cat(sprintf(“Best constituent stock: %.4f\n”, max(c(crps[1], crps[length(crps)]))))
cat(sprintf(“Universal wealth: Sn^ = %.4f\n\n\n\n”, mean(crps)))
}


ShowTable(“iroqu”,”kinar”)
ShowTable(“comme”,”kinar”)
ShowTable(“comme”,”meico”)

The final table is more complex to reproduce and also more interesting, we’ll tackle it in a next post.
