Higher risk stocks have a greater expected return than lower risk stocks if investors rationally demand a proportional return for risk. Put another way, the risky long shot should pay off more than the safer favorite. However, there is evidence of a Low Volatility Anomaly possibly arising from behavioral biases leading many investors to over-weight risky stocks and under-weight safer stocks. Academic research into the anomaly contends that a portfolio of low risk stocks may generate higher returns than a portfolio of higher risk stocks.
