Jewelry that I have for trade:
-A women’s diamond ring with 7 round cut diamonds in 14k white gold, (from the day we got engaged) -An 18k yellow gold cross necklace with 11 diamonds, (from the night I caught him lying about staying late at the office. You don’t come back from a late office meeting with Johnie Walker on your breath and lipstick on your abdomen, no sirree)
-A Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti open heart necklace in sterling silver, (from the night I found a studded leather g-string in his dirty laundry, which he said was just a designer storage bag for his spare laptop battery)
-A Tiffany & Co. Return to Tiffanys bracelet in sterling silver, (from the day he bought a 1967 Corvette without asking me first)
-And a Tiffany & Co. 18k yellow gold ring with a single diamond. (from our wedding day)
I would be interested in trading for a nice men’s watch or ring. Also interested in a rifle or shotgun or a handgun in nice condition. (I will lure him into our bedroom and present him with a gift. I will then shoot him in the head and drive the Corvette to Mexico)

This photo taken on May 14, 2008 above Bex, Switzeland shows Swiss professional pilot Yves Rossy, the world's first man to fly with fitted jet fuel powered wings strapped to his back, flying during his first official demonstration. Rossy flew into the history books on September 26, 2008 by crossing from France to Britain on only a jet-powered wing, describing afterwards how he felt "like a bird" over the English Channel. Yves Rossy, 49, touched down in a field on top of the white cliffs of Dover after completing the 35-kilometre (22-mile) journey over one of the world's busiest shipping lanes.

But what if the expected return of an investment is more than the market return for the same market risk? Will you go for it? Of course, you should. The point of this investment in the CAPM graph will be above the security market line(SML). The SML is the line depicting the expected market return for every value of market risk (If the risk is less than the actual market risk, beta is less than 1 and greater than 0. if the actual risk is more than the actual market risk, then beta is greater than 1. And yes, beta can be negative when the asset price varies inversely wrt the market movement).
If an investment is below the SML, it means that the investment is not worth the risk taken and it is possible to invest in the market itself and get a better return for the same risk. One of the disadvantages of CAPM is that it measures standard deviation as a measure of risk. There are better ways to measure risks like the coherent risk measure.
