Question

Use the required return-beta equation from the CAPM.

1. What is the required return if the risk-free rate is 3%, beta 1.5 and the required return for the market portfolio is 8%?

2. What is the risk-free rate if beta is 1.1, the required return 8.4% and the required return for the market portfolio is 8%?

3. What is beta if the risk-free rate is 3%, the required return 10% and the required return for the market is 8%?

4. What is the required return for the market if the risk-free rate is 3%, beta 1.5 and the required return 10%?

Answer #1

**1. The required return is computed as
follows:**

**= risk free rate + beta x (return on market - risk free
rate)**

= 0.03 + 1.5 x (8% - 3%)

**= 10.5%**

**2. The risk free rate is computed as
follows:**.

0.084 = risk free rate + 1.1 x (0.08 - risk free rate)

0.084 = risk free rate + 0.088 - 1.1 risk free rate

**risk free rate = 4%**

**3. Beta is computed as follows:**

0.10 = 0.03 + beta x (0.08 - 0.03)

**Beta = 1.4**

**4. Return on market is computed as follows:**

0.10 = 0.03 + 1.5 x (return on market - 0.03)

0.07 = 1.5 return on market - 0.045

**return on market = 7.67% Approximately**

CAPM AND PORTFOLIO RETURN
You have been managing a $5 million portfolio that has a beta of
2.00 and a required rate of return of 10%. The current risk-free
rate is 3.50%. Assume that you receive another $500,000. If you
invest the money in a stock with a beta of 1.90, what will be the
required return on your $5.5 million portfolio? Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal
places.
%

security?
c) Suppose you select Stock ABC for Rs. 50 and the stock is
expected to pay a dividend of rs. 2 next year and is expected to
