Returns from Stock Markets

Let us have a look at the returns generated by the Indian stock market (BSE) over the last fifteen years between March 31, 1992 and March 31, 2007. The Sensex increased from 4285 points on March 31, 1992 to 13072.10 points as on March 31, 2007 (Refer Exhibit II for the BSE Sensex Chart). The compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) recorded by the BSE Sensex during this period is 7.72 percent (Refer Table I for the annual return and standard deviation recorded by BSE Sensex between March 1992 and March 2007).

To calculate the return generated by Sensex and its standard deviation, we have taken the closing figures of Sensex on March 31 each year. In case March 31 is a holiday, we have taken the preceding day's figures.

From these figures, we have first calculated the year-on-year return on the index by using the following formula:

Return generated by Sensex = ((I1 - I0)/ I0) 100

Here I0 = Closing figure of previous year

I1 = Closing figure of just concluded year or present year

For calculating the average return, we have added all the annual returns obtained between 1992 and 2007 and divided the figure by the number of years. In other words, for the period we are looking at i.e. 15 years, the figure obtained is the average return on Sensex over 15-year period. Similarly, we have calculated returns for ten years, seven years, five years, three years, two years and one-year period (Refer Exhibit III to Exhibit VIII)...
