• a risky “stock” which increases your investment by 50% with probability 0.8 and wipes it away with probability 0.2. Putting an amount s in the bond, then, gives you 1.06s after a year. The same amount in the stock gives you 1.5s with probability 0.8 and 0 with probabiliy 0.2; note that the expected value is 0.8 ·1.5s = 1.2s > 1.06s.
