Abstract

In this note we analyze the composition of an optimal portfolio by considering the cumulative conditional expected outcome of two dependent assets. We develop a conditional stochastic dominance relation and show that for any concave von Neumann-Morgenstern utility function, the proportion of wealth invested in the dominant asset will be greater than 50%.
