Question

If the expected rate of return on the market portfolio is 14% and the risk free rate is 6% find the beta for a portfolio that has expected rate of return of 10%. What assumptions concerning this portfolio and or market condition do you need to make to calculate the portfolio’s beta? b. what percentage of this portfolio must an individual put into the market portfolio in order to achieve an expected return of 10%?

Answer #1

1. Beta of the portfolio will be calculated using the Capital Asset pricing model.

Expected rate of return=risk free rate+ beta( market rate of return- risk free rate)

10= 6+Beta(14-6)

4= 8 Beta

Beta= (4/8)= .5

Beta of the portfolio is .50

2. there will be various assumptions of Capital Asset pricing model that will be taken into consideration for calculation of expected rate of return as beta will be assumed to be the single factor which is representing the overall risk of the portfolio and beta is uniform in nature according to Capital Asset pricing model and market rate of return is also uniform in nature and investors are rational. There are no transaction costs also.

3. Percentage of this portfolio an individual should be putting in market portfolio to achieve an expected rate of return of 10% will be

(10/14)*100

= 71.42%

1.2. The risk-free rate is 6%, the expected return on the market
portfolio is 14%, and the standard deviation of the return on the
market portfolio is 25%. Consider a portfolio with expected return
of 16% and assume that it is on the efficient frontier.
1.2.1. Calculate the beta of this portfolio (4).
1.2.2. Calculate the standard deviation of its return (5).

Suppose that the risk-free rate is 6 percent and the
expected return on the market portfolio is 15
percent. An investor with $1.5 million to invest wants to achieve a
25 percent return on a
portfolio combining the risk-free asset and the market portfolio.
Calculate how much this
investor would need to borrow at the risk-free rate in order to
establish this target expected
return. Provide your final answers up to two decimal points.

(i) The risk-free rate of return is 6% and the return on the
market portfolio is 9.5%. What is the expected return from shares
in companies in Zambia and South Africa if: (1) The beta factor for
company Zambia shares is 3.25. [2 Marks] (2) The beta factor for
company South Africa shares is 0.90. [2 Marks] (ii) The return on
shares of company Zambia is 12%, but its normal beta factor is
1.12. The risk-free rate of return is...

The risk free rate is 6%, the expected rate of return on the
market portfolio is 8%. Cure-Covid Corp (CCC) is selling for $80 in
the market right now. You estimate that CCC's dividends will grow
at 2.5% a year indefinitely. CCC's earnings in one year are
expected to be $20 and CCC pays out 60% of its earnings as
dividends. What is the beta of CCC? Expected Dividends = 20 *
60%

a) Suppose the risk-free rate is 4.4% and the market portfolio
has an expected return of 10.9%. The
market portfolio has variance of 0.0391. Portfolio Z has a
correlation coefficient with the market of 0.31
and a variance of 0.3407. According to the capital asset pricing
model, what is the beta of Portfolio Z?
What is the expected return on Portfolio Z?
b) Suppose Portfolio X has beta of 1 with expected return of 11.5%.

1. The risk-free rate is 2.3% and the market risk premium is
5.5%. A stock has a beta of 1.3, what is its expected return of the
stock? (Enter your answers as a percentage. For example, enter
8.43% instead of 0.0843.)
2. Calculate the expected return on a stock with a beta of 1.59.
The risk-free rate of return is 4% and the market portfolio has an
expected return of 10%. (Enter your answer as a percentage. For
example, enter...

The risk-free rate of return is 8%, the expected rate of return
on the market portfolio is 15%, and the stock of ABC Company has a
beta coefficient of 1.2. ABC Company pays out 40% of its earnings
in dividends, and the latest earning announced were $10 per share.
Dividend were just paid and are expected to be paid annually. You
expect that ABC Company will earn a ROE of 20% per year on all
reinvested earnings forever

What is the expected return on the market portfolio at a time
when the risk free rate (e.g., T-Bill rate) is 4% and a stock with
a beta of 1.5 is expected to yield 16%? What’s the risk premium for
the stock
