How would you feel about owning an investment that perfonns well on most days, but occasionally decreases in value? We will return to this question later when we look at portfolios in Class 10. A Note on Relative Changes Before concluding, we want to mention a different transfonnation that is sometimes used in fmancial analyses. An alternative to percentage change which frequently appears is the log (natural log) of the ratio of today' s price to yesterday's price, . Price today Log Relative = loge Price yesterday For processes with small changes, both transfonnations give comparable results.
