              Portfolio and Investment Analysis with SAS: Financial Modeling Techniques for Optimization (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Choose statistically significant stock selection models using SAS(R) Portfolio and Investment Analysis with SAS(R): Financial Modeling Techniques for Optimization is an introduction to using SAS to choose statistically significant stock selection models, create mean-variance effi...cient portfolios, and aggressively invest to maximize the geometric mean. Based on the pioneering portfolio selection techniques of Harry Markowitz and others, this book shows that maximizing the geometric mean maximizes the utility of final wealth. The authors draw on decades of experience as teachers and practitioners of financial modeling to bridge the gap between theory and application. Using real-world data, the book illustrates the concept of risk-return analysis and explains why intelligent investors prefer stocks over bonds. The authors first explain how to build expected return models based on expected earnings data, valuation ratios, and past stock price performance using PROC ROBUSTREG. They then show how to construct and manage portfolios by combining the expected return and risk models. Finally, readers learn how to perform hypothesis testing using Bayesian methods to add confidence when data mining from large financial databases.

              Combine complex concepts facing the financial sector with the software toolsets available to analysts. The credit decisions you make are dependent on the data, models, and tools that you use to determine them. Developing Credit Risk Models Using SAS Enterprise Miner and SAS/STAT:... Theory and Applications combines both theoretical explanation and practical applications to define as well as demonstrate how you can build credit risk models using SAS Enterprise Miner and SAS/STAT and apply them into practice. The ultimate goal of credit risk is to reduce losses through better and more reliable credit decisions that can be developed and deployed quickly. In this example-driven book, Dr. Brown breaks down the required modeling steps and details how this would be achieved through the implementation of SAS Enterprise Miner and SAS/STAT. Users will solve real-world risk problems as well as comprehensively walk through model development while addressing key concepts in credit risk modeling. The book is aimed at credit risk analysts in retail banking, but its applications apply to risk modeling outside of the retail banking sphere. Those who would benefit from this book include credit risk analysts and managers alike, as well as analysts working in fraud, Basel compliancy, and marketing analytics. It is targeted for intermediate users with a specific business focus and some programming background is required. Efficient and effective management of the entire credit risk model lifecycle process enables you to make better credit decisions. Developing Credit Risk Models Using SAS Enterprise Miner and SAS/STAT: Theory and Applications demonstrates how practitioners can more accurately develop credit risk models as well as implement them in a timely fashion.

              Edward Vonesh's Generalized Linear and Nonlinear Models for Correlated Data: Theory and Applications Using SAS is devoted to the analysis of correlated response data using SAS, with special emphasis on applications that require the use of generalized linear models or generalized ...nonlinear models. Written in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, it provides applied statisticians with the necessary theory, tools, and understanding to conduct complex analyses of continuous and/or discrete correlated data in a longitudinal or clustered data setting. Using numerous and complex examples, the book emphasizes real-world applications where the underlying model requires a nonlinear rather than linear formulation and compares and contrasts the various estimation techniques for both marginal and mixed-effects models. The SAS procedures MIXED, GENMOD, GLIMMIX, and NLMIXED as well as user-specified macros will be used extensively in these applications. In addition, the book provides detailed software code with most examples so that readers can begin applying the various techniques immediately.
