Each portfolio may have a different estimated rate of return under a known market situation.

These numbers are 22%, 12%, 17%, and loss of 5% for “Option 2”, 8%, 9%, 14%, and 16% for “Option 3”, and finally for “Option 4” these rates are loss of 2%, 5%, 12%, and 35% under “Bad”, “Average”, “Good”, and “Excellent” market situations.
