## Discrete Distribution: Calculating Expected Return, Standard Deviation and CV

A stock's return has the following distribution:

Demand for the Probability of This Rate of Rate of Return if This Company's Products Demand Occurring Demand Occurs

Weak 0.1 (50%)
Below average 0.2 (5)
Average 0.4 16
Above average 0.2 25
Strong 0.1 60
1.0

Calculate the stock's expected return, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation.
