Question

Suppose there are two independent economic factors,
*M*_{1} and *M*_{2}. The risk-free
rate is 6%, and all stocks have independent firm-specific
components with a standard deviation of 50%. Portfolios *A*
and *B* are both well diversified.

B |
2.4 | -0.7 | 10 |

What is the expected return–beta relationship in this economy?

Consider the multifactor APT. There are two independent economic
factors, F1 and F2. The
risk-free rate of return is 6%. The following information is
available about two well-diversified portfolios:

Problem 2 [3pts] Suppose portfolios A and B are both
well-diversified with the following properties: Portfolio β1 on F1
β2 on F2 Expected return A 0.7 1.1 9.6% B -0.2 0.9 3.4% There are
two independent economic factors, F1 and F2. The risk-free rate is
1%. What is the expected return-beta relationship in this economy?
(Hint: find risk premium for each factor)

Consider a one factor economy where the risk free rate is 5%,
and portfolios A and B are well diversified portfolios. Portfolio A
has a beta of 0.6 and an expected return of 8%, while Portfolio B
has a beta of 0.8 and an expected return of 10%. Is there an
arbitrage opportunity in this economy? If yes, how could you
exploit it?
