Answer #1

(a) A market-value-weighted index

Market value = stock price * number of Shares outstanding

Market value of Stocks at t=0

A market value = 100 * 100 = 10000

B market value = 60 * 200 = 12000

C market value = 120 * 200 = 24000

Market value of Stocks at t= 1

A market value = 105 * 100 = 10500

B market value = 55 * 200 = 11000

C market value = 130 * 200 = 26000

Market value of Stocks at t= 2

A market value = 105 * 100 = 10500

B market value = 55 * 200 = 11000

C market value = 65 * 400 = 26000

Total market value at t = 0 is: (10000 +12000 +24000 ) = 46000

Total market value at t = 1 is: (10500 + 11000 + 26000) = 47500

Rate of return = (47500/46000) - 1 = 3.26%

(b) The return on each stock is as follows:

Ra = (105/100) - 1 = 0.05

Rb = (55/60) - 1 = -0.0833

Rc = (130/120) - 1 = 0.0833

The equally-weighted average is: [0.05 + (-0.0833) + 0.0833]/3 = 0.0167

= 1.67%

Consider the three stocks in the following table.
Pt represents price at time t, and
Qt represents shares outstanding at time
t. Stock C splits two-for-one in the last period.
