Loved your rigorous debunking of the traditional means to determine desirable investments. Of course you've totally missed why people may want to limit return variability. Not everyone is young and has a separate non-investment income. If you need to live on some of the investment income, and/or may become terminally ill in the not too distant future so as to need the money right then, you can't wait out a downturn. That's why Investment 101 mandates a different style of investing for young as opposed to old. However maybe you're right and beta tells all we need to make those decisions and Sharpe ratio is irrelevant. Sounds like you had fun with your mathematical explorations. Only remember when you get older to invest a bit differently so you don't get caught short.
