Hazel expects to receive an additional $16.00 million, which she plans to invest in additional stocks.

Select the correct answer. a. 2.55 b. 2.60 c. 2.65 d. 2.70

Answer #1

Required return=Risk free rate+Beta*Market risk premium

Required return for $40million=4.25+1*6=10.25%

Total value now=(40+16)=$56million

Required return=Respective return*Respective weights

13=(10.25*40/56)+(Required return of new stock*16/56)

13=7.321428571+(Required returnof new stock*16/56)

Hence Required return of new stock=(13-7.321428571)*56/16

=19.875

Required return=Risk free rate+Average beta of new stock*Market risk premium

19.875=4.25+Average beta of new stock*6

Average beta of new stock=(19.875-4.25)/6

which is equal to

=**2.60(Approx).**
