What is the beta of your portfolio? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)

Answer #1

Expected return of Portfolio = Weight of Stock X*Expected return of Stock X+Weight of Stock Y*Expected return of Stock Y |

14.4 = 12.62*Weight of Stock X+8.84*(1-weight of Stock X) |

Weight of Stock X = 1.4709 |

Weight of Stock Y = 1- Weight of Stock X=1-1.4709 = -0.4709

Amount to invest in Y = weight in Y*portfolio amount = -0.47089947*200000=-94179.89

Weight of Stock X = 1.4709 |

Weight of Stock Y = -0.4709 |

Beta of Portfolio = Weight of Stock X*Beta of Stock X+Weight of Stock Y*Beta of Stock Y |

Beta of Portfolio = 1.26*1.4709+0.72*-0.4709 |

Beta of Portfolio = 1.51 |
