Answer #1

Problem 11-18 Minimum Variance Portfolio (LO4, CFA4)
Asset K has an expected return of 14 percent and a standard
deviation of 33 percent. Asset L has an expected return of 8
percent and a standard deviation of 14 percent. The correlation
between the assets is 0.52. What are the expected return and
standard deviation of the minimum variance portfolio?

Asset K has an expected return of 19 percent and a standard
deviation of 34 percent. Asset L has an expected return of 7
percent and a standard deviation of 18 percent. The correlation
between the assets is 0.43. What are the expected return and
standard deviation of the minimum variance portfolio? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Enter your answers as a percent rounded
to 2 decimal places.)
Expected return%
Standard deviation%

There are 2 assets. Asset 1: Expected return 7.5%, standard
deviation 9% Asset 2: Expected return 11%, standard deviation 12%.
You are not sure about the correlation between 2 assets. You hold
30% of your portfolio in asset 1 and 70% in asset 2.
What is the highest possible variance of your portfolio?
Hint 1: Think how the portfolio variance depends on the
correlation between 2 assets.
Hint 2: Think which values the correlation between Asset 1 and
Asset 2...

Consider two stocks, Stock D, with an expected return of 11
percent and a standard deviation of 26 percent, and Stock I, an
international company, with an expected return of 9 percent and a
standard deviation of 19 percent. The correlation between the two
stocks is –0.12. What are the expected return and standard
deviation of the minimum variance portfolio? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percent rounded
to 2 decimal places.).

Consider two stocks, Stock D with an expected return of 11
percent and a standard deviation of 26 percent and Stock I, an
international company, with an expected return of 9 percent and a
standard deviation of 19 percent. The correlation between the two
stocks is -.12. What is the weight of each stock in the minimum
variance portfolio? (Round your answer to 4 decimal places.) Weight
of Stock D Weight of Stock I

The stock of Bruin, Inc., has an expected return of 22 percent
and a standard deviation of 37 percent. The stock of Wildcat Co.
has an expected return of 12 percent and a standard deviation of 52
percent. The correlation between the two stocks is .49. Calculate
the expected return and standard deviation of the minimum variance
portfolio.

You are going to invest in Asset J and Asset S. Asset J has an
expected return of 13.8 percent and a standard deviation of 54.8
percent. Asset S has an expected return of 10.8 percent and a
standard deviation of 19.8 percent. The correlation between the two
assets is .50. What are the standard deviation and expected return
of the minimum variance portfolio? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Enter your answers as a percent rounded
to 2 decimal places.)...

Stock 1 has a expected return of 14% and a standard deviation
of 12%.
Stock 2 has a expected return of 11% and a standard deviation
of 11%.
Correlation between the two stocks is 0.5.
Create a minimum variance portfolio with long positions in both
stocks.
What is the return on this portfolio?

The domestic asset has an expected return of 9% and standard
deviation of 25%
The foreign asset has an expected return of 15% and standard
deviation of 35%
The correlation between two asset is 0.40. Assuming the
portfolio has 30% invested in the domestic asset and the reminder
in the foreign asset.
