Question

3. If the risk-free rate is 6% and the expected return of the market is 12%, what is the expected return of a portfolio that is equally invested in

treasury bills and a stock with a beta of 1.3?

A. 9.9% B. 10.2% C. 13.8% D. 12.9% E. 19.8%

The answer is A. Please show the precess.

Answer #1

First, we find the expected rate of return of portfolio using CAPM:

Expected return = risk free rate + beta ( expected return on market - riskk free rate)

Expected return = 0.06 + 1.3 ( 0.12 - 0.06)

Expected return = 0.06 + 1.3 ( 0.06)

Expected return = 0.06 + 0.078

Expected return = 0.138 or 13.8%

Since the money is equally invested, weight of both portfolio and risk free asset will be 0.5.

Expected return = 0.5 * 0.138 + 0.5 * 0.06

Expected return = 0.069 + 0.03

**Expected return = 0.099 or 9.9%**

The risk-free rate of return is 4 percent, and the expected
return on the market is 7.1 percent. Stock A has a beta coefficient
of 1.4, an earnings and dividend growth rate of 6 percent, and a
current dividend of $1.50 a share. Do not round intermediate
calculations. Round your answers to the nearest cent.

The expected return on the market is 12%; the risk-free rate is
3%; the beta of your portfolio is 1.17; and the standard deviation
of your portfolio is 17%.
Which of the following statements is true?
A. The expected return on your portfolio is 1.17 times 12%
B. The reward to risk ratio for your portfolio is 1.17/0.17.
C. The market risk premium is 9%.
D. There is not enough information to determine the expected
return on your portfolio.

The risk-free rate of return is 5%, the expected return of the
market index is 10%, and the expected return of Stock Y is 12%.
Based on this information, what is Stock Y’s beta coefficient?
If Stock Y’s beta coefficient is 2.0, what is the stock’s (new)
required rate of return?
Please show the detailed calculation process.

The risk-free rate is 2% and the return on the market is 12%,
what is the required rate of return on the following portfolio?
Stock Amount Invested Beta A $6,000 0.6 B $9,000 1.8 C $5,000 1.2
15.71% 11.48% 13.16% 12.52% 14.90%

return =14%, and Antivirus Inc.’s stock beta = 1.3 a. What is the
required return on Maxwell stock? b. If the expected inflation rate

If the expected rate of return on the market portfolio is 14%
and the risk free rate is 6% find the beta for a portfolio that has
expected rate of return of 10%. What assumptions concerning this
portfolio and or market condition do you need to make to calculate
the portfolio’s beta? b. what percentage of this portfolio must an
individual put into the market portfolio in order to achieve an
expected return of 10%?

1.2. The risk-free rate is 6%, the expected return on the market
portfolio is 14%, and the standard deviation of the return on the
market portfolio is 25%. Consider a portfolio with expected return
of 16% and assume that it is on the efficient frontier.
1.2.1. Calculate the beta of this portfolio (4).
1.2.2. Calculate the standard deviation of its return (5).

(i) The risk-free rate of return is 6% and the return on the
market portfolio is 9.5%. What is the expected return from shares
in companies in Zambia and South Africa if: (1) The beta factor for
company Zambia shares is 3.25. [2 Marks] (2) The beta factor for
company South Africa shares is 0.90. [2 Marks] (ii) The return on
shares of company Zambia is 12%, but its normal beta factor is
1.12. The risk-free rate of return is...

A stock has expected return of 12.0 percent, the risk free rate
is 3.00 percent, and the market risk premium 4.00.
