Stock-analysis applied to software projects

What happens if you apply a technique from stock-analysis to software projects?

The Sharpe Ratio is one of the most fundamental ways to analyze the risk/reward trade-off for an investment.  It can even help you answer the question, "if I could reduce risk to a given level, how much money would that be worth?"

You can perform the same analysis on a software project.

If you could reduce cost or schedule risk, how much money would that be worth?
