We describe a post hoc test for the Sharpe ratio, analogous to Tukey's test for pairwise equality of means. The test can be applied after rejection of the hypothesis that all population Signal-Noise ratios are equal. The test is applicable under a simple correlation structure among asset returns. Simulations indicate the test maintains nominal type I rate under a wide range of conditions and is moderately powerful under reasonable alternatives.
