Stochastic Dominance and Optimal Portfolio
We analyze the effect of generalized first and second order stochastic dominance changes in a returns distribution on optimal financial portfolios with two risky and a risk free assets. We show that constant relative risk aversion plays an important role in explaining how the composition of the portfolios is affected. The results are interpreted in terms of two-fund separation.
