I'm not following this problem at all I understand the terms such as median quartile and such but I just don't understand stocks so can you lend me a hand

The rate of return on a stock is its change in price plus any dividends paid, usually measaured in percen of the srating value. We have data on the monthly rate of return ofr the stock of Wal-Mart stors fro the years 1973 to 1991, the first 19 years Wal-Mart was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. There are 228 observations. Here is the output from the computer statistical package SPLUS that describes the distribution of these data

the book then give 5 number summary then the stemp plot with the outliers listed separately

the question

If you had 1 grand worht of Wal-Mart stock at the beginning fo the best month during these 19 years, how much would your stock be worth at the end of the month?

The highest outlier listed separately is

58.67769

so I'm not exaclty sure what to do what that number and 1 grand to find the value at the end of the month...

thanks!

    We do not have the data that you have in your book. In addition, you have so many typos, it is hard to decipher what you are saying.

    If you want, repost with adequate data without typos, and we will attempt to help.
