An explicit solution for optimal investment problems with autoregressive prices and exponential utility
We calculate explicitly the optimal strategy for an investor with exponential utility function when the price of a single risky asset (stock) follows a discrete-time autoregressive Gaussian process. We also calculate its performance and analyse it when the trading horizon tends to infinity. Dependence of the asymptotic performance on the autoregression parameter is determined. This provides, to the best of our knowledge, the first instance of a theorem linking directly the memory of the asset price process to the attainable satisfaction level of investors trading in the given asset.
