Using FinancialData[],

1.Download the price data of GE needed to compute daily returns for
any trading days from {2000, 1, 1} to {2007, 10, 17}, inclusive, and
then compute the daily returns.

2.Using the return data compute a raw mean vector and covariance

I was able to do part 1,but i am not too sure if I did question 2

For the mean,I said

Mean[GEData], and I got a number instead of a vector. I did the same
for the Covariance, and I got a single number instead of a vector. Can
someone please tell me if I am not doing it the right way?
