Answer #1

Ans :

a) The statement is inconsistent with both the CAPM and
efficient capital market, as both are actually considering the non
-diversified risjk, beta. **Option B is correct.**

b) This statement is consistent with both CAPM and efficient
capital market, as for beta= non diversfiable risk =1 the security
should have same return as market, but due to diversifiable risk it
can have more return. **Option C is correct.**

c) This statement can be consistent with efficient market portfolio in one of the instances but inconsistent with CAPM, as CAPM precisely states that for same beta the return is same for any stock , small or large stocks.

**Option A is correct.**

Assume that CAPM holds. Which of the following statements is
TRUE?
a)Beta indicates a stock’s diversifiable risk
b)Two stocks with the same stand-alone risk must have the same
betas
c)The slope of the security market line is given by the market
risk premium
d)If the beta of a Stock doubles, then its required rate of
return must also double
e)If the risk-free rate decreases, then the market risk premium
must also decrease

When the CAPM assumptions hold, which of the following
statements is FALSE?
a) The capital market line goes through a risk-free asset
b) The capital market line goes through the market portfolio
c) The efficient frontier goes through a risk-free asset
d) The security market line goes through the market
portfolio

Which of the following statements are FALSE?
The CAPM identifies the market portfolio as the efficient
portfolio.
If some security were not part of the efficient portfolio, then
every investor would want to own it, and demand for this security
would increase causing its expected return to fall until it is no
longer an attractive investment.
If investors have homogeneous expectations, then each investor
will identify the same portfolio as having the highest Sharpe ratio
in the economy.
The market...

Problem1
Are statements below true or false? Explain
your answer.
a) (0.5 point) Assume that CAPM holds. Given that stocks A and
B, which are traded in the same market, have the same expected
return, their betas must be the same.
b) (0.5 point) Stocks A and B, which are traded in the same
market, have the same beta. Given that
Correlation(A,Market)>Correlation(B,Market), it must be the case
that Standard deviation(A)<Standard deviation(B).
c) (0.5 point) Assume that CAPM holds. In January...

respectively.
b. Find the risk-free rate for a firm with a required return

Which of the following statements is true?
Select one:
A. Beta identifies the appropriate level of risk for which an
investor should be compensated.
B. Unsystematic risk is not diversifiable, so there is no reward
for taking on such risk.
C. Stocks with same betas will always earn different
returns.
D. The market risk premium is calculated by multiplying beta by
the difference between the expected return on the market and the
risk-free rate of return.
