Question

Stock A has a beta of 1.5, the risk-free rate is 4% and the return on the market is 9%. If inflation changes by 3%, by how much will the required return on Stock A change?

Answer #1

**Required Rate of Return (Ke) = Rf + Beta * (ERM -
Rf)**

where, Rf = Risk free rate of return

ERM = Expected Return on Market

**Ke = 4% + 1.5 * (9% - 4%)**

**= 11.5%**

Real Risk Free Interest Rate is the single period interest rate if no inflation were expected. However if there is inflation then we need to compute Nominal Risk Free Interest Rate, which is computed by formula as follows :-

**Nominal Risk Free Rate = (1 + Real Risk Free Rate) * (1
+ Rate of inflation) - 1**

**=** (1 + 0.04) * (1 + 0.03) - 1

= (1.04) * (1.03) - 1

= 7.12%

**Ke = Rf + Beta * (ERM - Rf)**

= 7.12% + 1.5 * (9% - 7.12%)

= 7.12% + 1.5 * 1.88%

= 7.12% + 2.82%

= 9.94%

**Change in Required Rate of Return with change in
Inflation = 11.5% - 9.94%**

**= 1.56%**

**Hence if inflation changes by 3%, Required Rate of
Return changes by 1.56%.**

Stock A has a beta of 0, the risk-free rate is 4% and the return
on the market is 9%. If the market risk premium changes by 1%, by
how much will the required return on Stock A change?

4) Assume that a stock has a beta of 1.5, the risk free interest
rate is 4%,a and the market return is 6%. Find the stock return
(expected return).
