Question

Assume that CAPM holds. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

a)Beta indicates a stock’s diversifiable risk

b)Two stocks with the same stand-alone risk must have the same betas

c)The slope of the security market line is given by the market risk premium

d)If the beta of a Stock doubles, then its required rate of return must also double

e)If the risk-free rate decreases, then the market risk premium must also decrease

Answer #1

As per CAPM required return = Rf + beta*(Rm - Rf)

Rf = risk free rate

Rm = return on market portfolio

Rm - Rf = market risk premium

a)

Beta represents systematic risk also known as non diversifiable risk so Option a is not true

b)

Stand alone risk is measured by standard deviation. it is not necessary that Two stocks with the same stand-alone risk must have the same betas Option b is incorrect

c)

The slope of SML = Rm - Rf = Market risk premium Option C is true

d)

if beta doubles required return will not double Option d is false

e)

Option e also incorrect

**Option c is True**

Problem1
Are statements below true or false? Explain
your answer.
a) (0.5 point) Assume that CAPM holds. Given that stocks A and
B, which are traded in the same market, have the same expected
return, their betas must be the same.
b) (0.5 point) Stocks A and B, which are traded in the same
market, have the same beta. Given that
Correlation(A,Market)>Correlation(B,Market), it must be the case
that Standard deviation(A)<Standard deviation(B).
c) (0.5 point) Assume that CAPM holds. In January...

Which of the following statements is true?
Select one:
A. Beta identifies the appropriate level of risk for which an
investor should be compensated.
B. Unsystematic risk is not diversifiable, so there is no reward
for taking on such risk.
C. Stocks with same betas will always earn different
returns.
D. The market risk premium is calculated by multiplying beta by
the difference between the expected return on the market and the
risk-free rate of return.

State whether each of the following is inconsistent with an
efficient capital? market, the? CAPM, or? both:
a. A security with only diversifiable risk has an expected
return that exceeds the? risk-free interest rate.
b. A security with a beta of 1 had a return last year of? 15%
when the market had a return of? 9%.

Stock X has a beta of 0.5 and Stock Y has a beta of 1.5. Which
of the following statements is most correct?
Select one:
a. If expected inflation increases (but the market risk premium
is unchanged), the required returns on the two stocks will decrease
by the same amount.
b. If investors' aversion to risk decreases (assume the
risk-free rate unchanged), Stock X will have a larger decline in
its required return than will stock Y.
c. If you...

Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
Select one: a. The beta of a portfolio of stocks is always
smaller than the betas of any of the individual stocks.
b. The beta of a portfolio of stocks is always larger than the
betas of any of the individual stocks.
c. It is theoretically possible for a stock to have a beta of
1.0. If a stock did have a beta of 1.0, then, at least in theory,
its required rate...

question 4
Suppose CAPM holds, and the beta of the equity of your company
is 2.42. The expected market risk premium (the difference between
the expected market return and the risk-free rate) is 6.75% and the
risk-free rate is 3.50%. Suppose the debt-to-equity ratio of your
company is 30% and the market believes that probability of default

A stock has a beta of 1.8. The risk-free rate is 2%. Assume that
the CAPM holds.
A: What is the expected return for the stock if the expected
return on the market is 11%? 3+ Decimals
B: What is the expected return for the stock if the expected
market risk premium is 11%? 3+ Decimals

Which of the following statements is most correct?
The required rate of return of a diversified portfolio with Beta
of 1 is typically greater than the Market Risk Premium.
A stock with a negrative beta must have a negative required rate
of return.
If a stock's beta doubles its required rate of return must
double.
If a stock has a beta equal to 1.0, its required rate of return
will be unaffected by changes in the market risk premium.
