The expected gain rule can thus be read as defining the results’ utilities as identical to the results themselves, that is, u(r) = r. This implicit assumption is also found in many decision rules applied to portfolio choice problems. It implies that all individuals assign identical utilities to identical results. Results cannot be valued differently by different individuals. This lack of subjectivity seems to be due to the expected gain rule’s application to games of chance. There it might seem plausible that every individual would assign identical utilities to identical gains.

That is the implicit reasoning given by Markowitz for choosing the expected value. Unfortunately, combining the expected value with the variance also renders his decision rule plausible only for infinitely often repeated gambles. 52 If c is the quantity chosen to predict the next value the random variable Y will take on, the MSFE is defined as E[(Y – c)2]. The value that minimises the MSFE is the expected value E[Y]. The MSFE is a criterion for predictive success that is widespread in statistics and econometrics.

It has become so influential that many alternatives proposed to Markowitz’s rule are mainly concerned with what statistical entity to use instead of the variance as the measure for ‘risk’. The use of expected values and variances brought along some presentational ease. Portfolio returns, their expected value and their variance, may easily be calculated from the returns of single assets, their expected values and their variances and covariances. This results from two basic theorems of mathematical statistics.
