# Share your rote memorization gimmicks

Here’s one of mine:

I couldn’t remember the what CML and SML corresponded to… so I pictured a “C” corresponding to the CML… and the “C” looked like the efficient frontier plot. So I remembered CML corresponded to the line tangent to the efficient frontier.

And the SML line corresponds to the Systematic risk. S = Systematic.

I remember platykurti and leptokurtic distributions by thinking that platypus is flat (flatter distribution) and lepto means you leap up (more peaked distribution).

Put Call Parity… S*PV(K)=X*C

sexy pamela = x-rated cougar

for turnover ratio: remember that the name of the turnover is the denominator!

ex inventory turnover = COGS/inventory

ar turnovner = sales/AR

ap turnover = purchase/payables

Also remember that the numerator is in the same terms (inv measured in cost -> use cogs; payables measured in purchase price; AR is a reflection of sales)
