An investor believes there is a 50–50 chance that a stock will increase on a particular day. To investigate this idea, for 30 consecutive trading days the investor selects a random sample of 50 stocks and counts the number that increase. The number of stocks in the sample that increased is reported below.
Develop p-chart and write a brief report summarizing your findings. Based on these sample results, is it reasonable that the odds are 50–50 that a stock will increase? What percent of the stocks would need to increase in a day for the process to be “out ofcontrol”?
