Question

Yesterday Stock A had a price of $50 per share while Stock B had a price of $25 per share. Stock A has 100 shares outstanding while Stock B has 10 shares outstanding. If the prices today of Stock A and B are $55 and $30 respectively, the return of the Equal Weighted Index of these two stocks would be _________%

Answer #1

Weight of each security in equal weighted index = 1/N

Where, N is the number of securities in index

Therefore, weight of each security = 1/2 = 0.5

Initial value of stock A = Initial price of stock A*Number of shares outstanding

= $50*100

= $5000

Ending value of stock A = Ending price of stock A*Number of shares outstanding

= $55*100

= $5500

Return on stock A = (Ending value/Initial value)-1

= ($5500/$5000)-1

= 0.10 or 10%

Initial value of stock B = Initial price of stock B*Number of shares outstanding

= $25*10

= $250

Ending value of stock B = Ending price of stock B*Number of shares outstanding

= $30*10

= $300

Return on stock B = (Ending value/Initial value)-1

= ($300/$250)-1

= 0.20 or 20%

Return of the equal weighted index =Weight of each stock*(Return on stock A + Return of stock B)

= 0.50*(10%+20%)

= 0.50*30%

= 15%

Return of equal weighted index of stock A and B would be 15%.

An index consists of 3 stocks: A, B and C. At date 0, the prices
per share for A, B and C are $13, $60, and $15, respectively. At
date 0, the number of shares outstanding for A, B, and C are 100,
120, and 3000 respectively. At date 1, the prices per share for A,
B and C are $12, $22, and $12, respectively. At date 1, the number
of shares outstanding for A, B, and C are 100,...

A benchmark market value index is comprised of three stocks.
Yesterday the three stocks were priced at $22, $32, and $70. The
number of outstanding shares for each is 780,000 shares, 680,000
shares, and 380,000 shares, respectively. If the stock prices
changed to $26, $30, and $72 today respectively, what is the 1-day
rate of return on the index?
4.52%
3.85%
2.69%
6.05%

Suppose that a stock index is constructed with three stocks
priced at $7, $43, and $56. The number of outstanding shares for
each is 500,000 shares, 405,000 shares, and 553,000 shares,
respectively. Today the prices for each stock are changed to $14,
$44, and $52 and the number of outstanding shares for each are
changed to 250,000 shares, 405,000 shares and 553,000 shares today,
what is the equal weighted index value today if the index yesterday
was 1000?
