ABSTRACT There are many non-probabilistic factors that affect the financial markets such that the returns of risky assets may be regarded
as fuzzy numbers. This paper discusses the portfolio selection problem based on the possibilistic mean and variance of fuzzy
numbers, which can better described an uncertain environment with vagueness and ambiguity to compare with conventional probabilistic
mean-variance methodology. Markowitz’s mean-variance model is simplified a linear programming when returns of assets are symmetric
triangular fuzzy numbers, so the possibilistic efficient portfolios can be easily obtained by some related algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of our research is to build a statistical test that can evaluate different risks of a portfolio selection model with fuzzy data. The central points and radiuses of fuzzy numbers are used to determine the portfolio selection model, and we statistically evaluate the best return by a fuzzy statistical test. Empirical studies are presented to illustrate the risk evaluation of the portfolio selection model with interval values. We conclude that the fuzzy statistical test enables us to evaluate a stable expected return and low risk investment with different choices for k, which indicates the risk level. The results of numerical examples show that our method is suitable for short-term investments.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of our research is to build a statistical test that can evaluate the sensitivity of a portfolio selection model with fuzzy data. The central point and radius are used to determine the portfolio selection model and we make a decision for the best return by a fuzzy statistical test. Empirical studies are presented to illustrate the risk of the portfolio selection model with interval values. We conclude that the evaluation by the fuzzy statistical test enables us to obtain a stable expected return and low risk investment with different choices based on the risk level k, which is taken for the risk level.

    ABSTRACT: Carlsson and Fullér (Fuzzy Sets Syst. 122:315–326, 2001) introduced the definitions of two crisp possibilistic variances of a fuzzy number A, Var(A) and Var′(A). They showed that the subsethood does entail smaller variance in the sense of Var(⋅). Thus it is natural to ask whether it holds in the sense of Var′(⋅). Yet we are able to prove that it actually does not hold. Zhang and Wang (Appl. Math. Lett. 20:1167–1173, 2007) had introduced some conditions for which the subsethood does entail smaller variance in the sense of Var′(⋅). In this paper we give more generalized conditions for which it holds.
