Answer #1

Beta of Stock R = 2.0

Beta of Stock S = 0.95

The higher the Beta the more risker it is. Thus, Stock R is more risker as having higher Beta

As per CAPM,

where, rf = Risk free return = 5%

Rm = Market Return or average stock return = 13%

- Beta of Stock R = 2.0

Required Return of Stock R = 5% + 2.0(13%-5%)

**Required Return of Stock R = 21%**

- - Beta of Stock S = 0.95

Required Return of Stock S = 5% + 0.95(13%-5%)

**Required Return of Stock S = 12.60%**

So, the required return on the riskier stock exceed the required
return on the less risky stock = Required Return of Stock R
**-** Required Return of Stock S

= 21% - 12.60%

= 8.4%

Thus, **Required Return of Risker Stock exceed less risky
stock by 8.40%**
