The Risk vs. Return Scatterplot chart allows you to compare all portfolios in one view using total return and standard deviation. Each portfolio on the report is given a number that appears in the left column of the page. This number is plotted on the scatterplot.  The vertical axis (Y-axis) is the total return for a specified period (1, 3, or 5 years) and the horizontal access (X-axis) is the standard deviation of the individual portfolios over the same period (1, 3, or 5 years).
