A portfolio has 80 shares of Stock A that sell for $42 per share and 100 shares of Stock B that sell for $26 per share. |
Required: | |
(a) | What is the portfolio weight of Stock A? |
(b) | What is the portfolio weight of Stock B? |
Total value of A = 80 shares x $42 per share = 80 x 42 = $3360
Total value of B = 100 shares x $26 per share = 100 x 26 = $2600
Total value of A&B = Total value of A + Total Value of B = 3360 + 2600 = $5960
-----
Weight of A = Total value of A / Total value of A&B
Weight of A = 3360/5960
Weight of A = 0.563758389 or 0.56
.
Weight of B = Total value of B / Total value of A&B
Weight of B = 2600 / 5960
Weight of B = 0.436241611 or 0.44
