Question

Assume the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the expected return on the market is 12%. If you are evaluating a project with a beta of 1.3 and an IRR of 17%, and you draw the security market line (SML) to guide your decision, which of the following statements is true?

a. The vertical intercept of the SML will be 7%.

b. The project’s IRR of 17% falls on the SML.

c. The project’s IRR of 17% falls below the SML and the project should be rejected.

d. The project’s IRR of 17% falls above the SML and the project should be accepted.

e. The expected return on the market will graph on the SML corresponding with the beta of 1.3.

Answer #1

SML Ret or CAPM Ret = Rf + Beta ( Rm - Rf )

Rf = Risk free ret

Rm = Market ret

Rm - Rf = Risk Premium

Beta = Systematic Risk

Particulars |
Amount |

Risk Free Rate | 5.0% |

Market Return | 12.0% |

Beta | 1.3000 |

Risk Premium ( Rm - Rf) | 7.00% |

Beta Specifies Systematic Risk. Systematic risk specifies the How many times security return will deviate to market changes. SML return considers the risk premium for Systematic risk alone.Where as CML return considers risk premium for Total risk. Beta of market is "1".

SML Return = Rf + Beta ( Rm - Rf )

= 5 % + 1.3 ( 7 % )

= 5 % + ( 9.1 % )

= 14.1 %

Rf = Risk Free rate

As IRR > SML Ret ( 14.10%), IRR will be above the SML Line and Project will be accepted.

Option D is correct

Pls comment, if any further assistance is required.

Currently, the risk-free interest rate (RF) is 3% and
the required market return (rm) is 10%. You consider to
buy a stock with a beta (β) of 1.5 and you expect to earn 11%
annual rate of return from this stock.
(1) Use the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) to find the
required return on this stock
(2) Base on your answer from part (1), would you buy this stock?
Why or why not?
(3) Draw the Security Market Line...

Assume risk-free rate is 4% and the market risk premium is 5%.
If the overall market’s risk aversion increased so that the market
risk premium increased to 8%, what will be the change to SML? Draw
the original SML and the new SML in the same graph (not in two
separate graphs) to show the change. If stock A’s beta is 1.6, what
will be its required return before and after the change?

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

A project has a level of systematic risk of 1.25. The expected
return on the market portfolio is 12%, and the risk free rate is
5%. If an investment’s internal rate of return is 12%
a.
The project should be accepted
b.
The project should be rejected because IRR is less than the
required rate of return
c.
The project should be rejected because it is over-priced.
d.
Both b and c are correct
e.
Not enough information to tell

a) Suppose the risk-free rate is 4.4% and the market portfolio
has an expected return of 10.9%. The
market portfolio has variance of 0.0391. Portfolio Z has a
correlation coefficient with the market of 0.31
and a variance of 0.3407. According to the capital asset pricing
model, what is the beta of Portfolio Z?
What is the expected return on Portfolio Z?
b) Suppose Portfolio X has beta of 1 with expected return of 11.5%.

Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the
expected rate of return on the market is 17%. I am buying a firm
with an expected perpetual cash flow of $2,000 but am unsure of its
risk. If I think the beta of the firm is 0.4, when in fact the beta
is really 0.8, how much more will I offer for the firm than it is
truly worth? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your
