can write for the density of the rate of return f (Y - k¥) 
and for its symmetric function f* (kW - Y). In this way we 
manage to express the argument of the function f* (which 
actually represents the reciprocal profit rote, a—dwaea '

it independent of ¥, provided the regression is homo- 
scedastic. k is a constant which equals -fce regression co

If thc/ireturn decreases with wealth, we have to take 
k<1, if it increases with wealth, we take k-^-1. In fig. 1 
the first case is assumed. 
Proceeding os "before, the symmetric function f* (k¥ - Y) 
will now he randomised by means of the wealth function ( 
which means taking the Laplace transform of the former:

This is now the second result: If there is a log-linear
