2. Standard deviation of each stock

3. Coefficient of Variation of each stock

4. Which stock is less risky based on Standard deviation?

5. Which stock you will select based on Coefficient of variation?

Normal Economy 0.30 +14 +7

a) Calculate the expected rate of return and standard deviation for each investment?

stocks and 0.30 in bonds.

b) What is the expected rate of return and standard deviation of the portfolio?

7 percent. If the stock is perceived to be fairly priced today, what must be investors’

expectations of the price of the stock at the end of the year?

b) The following table shows betas for several companies. Calculate each stock’s expected

rate of return using CAPM. Assume the risk free rate of interest is 9 percent. Use a 6

Percent risk premium for the market portfolio.

Company Beta

Cisco 2.03

CitiGroup 1.63

Merck 0.50

Walt Disney 0.74

c) If the expected rate of return on the market portfolio is 14 percent and T- bills yield is 6

percent, what must be the beta of a stock that investors expect to return 10 percent?

d) You have equal investment in all four stocks given in part (b) of this question. What

would be your portfolio beta?

e) Student practice: Suppose you have investment as follows:

Cisco 20%

CitiGroup 20%

Merck 30%

Q No.6

a. Calculate Stock A’s beta.

b. If Stock A’s beta were 2.0, what would be A’s new required rate of return?

Q No.7

a. What is ki, the required rate of return on stock i?

b. Now suppose kRF (1) increases to 10 percent or (2) decreases to 8 percent. The slope of

the SML remains constant. How would this affect kM and ki?

Q No.8

Suppose you hold a diversified portfolio consisting of a $7500 investment in each of 20 different

common stocks. The portfolio beta is equal to 1.12. Now suppose you have decided to sell one of

the stocks in your portfolio with a beta equal to 1.0 for $7500 and to use these proceeds to buy

another stock for your portfolio. Assume the new stock’s beta is equal to 1.75. Calculate your

portfolio’s new beta.

Market rate of return is 18%, risk free rate of return 8% and beta is 1.2

Calculate risk premium

Market rate of return is 14%, beta is 1.5 and required rate of return is 18.5%. What is risk free

rate of return?

Here are stock market and Treasury bill returns between 1997 and 2001
