Calculates beta, which represents the volatility of the asset as compared to the volatility of the benchmark.
Uses CAPM to estimate expected returns over user-defined periods.
Generates a table displaying the expected return and asset's mean return for each period.
Provides implications based on the comparison between the expected returns and the asset's historical returns. This is showcased through a mutable label that is updated with each bar.

Plots expected return and asset's mean return over the benchmark period.
Provides a horizontal line to represent zero return.
