    Annualizing daily average stock price?

    Given daily stock prices, we can calculate the daily standard deviation and convert it to an annual standard deviation by multiplying it by SQRT(252). We can also calculate the daily average (the mean) of the stock price but how can we convert it to an annual term? Thanks
