Excuse-me, I have three questions while dealing with a financial evaluation project using Matlab.
Given the following data, the annual time series of Total Return for each asset:
Year StocksA StocksB StocksC
2003 20.2558 262.933 101.00
2004 25.6862 268.731 106.33
2005 23.4299 284.092 108.33
.
.
.
(There are 43 rows)
Question 1. I want to know how to generate the table of return rates for the three assets (A B and C)?
Question 2. How to definite an objective function as a Handle?
Question 3. For the stocks B, how to extract the information about the years when its value is larger than 270?
Thank you and best regards!

Hi,
I assume that, you have data in a file and want to import to a MATLAB table. You can use "readtable" function as below
To filter out the table based on a condition, you can do the following:
T = (T.stocksB > 270, :)
Refer the below links to define objective funciton as a handle
