Question

Consider the following multifactor (APT) model of security returns for a particular stock. Factor Factor Beta Factor Risk Premium Inflation 1.1 9 % Industrial production 0.7 11 Oil prices 0.3 7 a. If T-bills currently offer a 6% yield, find the expected rate of return on this stock if the market views the stock as fairly priced. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 1 decimal place.) b. Suppose that the market expects the values for the three macro factors given in column 1 below, but that the actual values turn out as given in column 2. Calculate the revised expectations for the rate of return on the stock once the “surprises” become known. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 1 decimal place.) Factor Expected Value Actual Value Inflation 7 % 3 % Industrial production 6 7 Oil prices 4 0

Answer #1

Answer : **(a.) Calculation of Expected Rate of Return
:**

Expected Return = Risk Free Rate + (Inflation Beta * Inflation Risk Premium) +(Industrial Production Beta * Industrial Production Risk Premium) + (Oil Prices Beta * Oil Prices Risk Premium)

= 6% + (1.1 * 9%) + (0.7 * 11%) + (0.3 * 7%)

= 6% + 9.9% + 7.7% + 2.1%

**= 25.7%**

**(b.) Calculation of Revised Expected Return
:**

Revised Expected Return = Expected Return (+/-) Unexpected return from macro factors

Unexpected return from macro factors = [1.1 * (3% - 7%)] + [0.7 * (7% - 6%)] + [0.3 * (0 - 4%)]

= -4.9%

**Revised Expected Return = 25.7% - 4.9%**

**= 20.8%**

Suppose that two factors have been identified for the U.S.
economy: the growth rate of industrial production, IP, and the
inflation rate, IR. IP is expected to be 6%, and IR 3.0%. A stock
with a beta of 1.3 on IP and 0.7 on IR currently is expected to
provide a rate of return of 9%. If industrial production actually
grows by 8%, while the inflation rate turns out to be 4.0%, what is
your revised estimate of the expected...

An investor holds shares of Bank of Montreal. The Canadian stock
market can be explained by three sources of systematic risk:
short-term interest rates (I), the rate of inflation (P), and
industrial production (Y). Short-term interest rates have an
associated risk premium of 4%, inflation has an associated risk
premium of 4% and industrial production has an associated risk
premium of 1%. Each systematic factor has a mean value of zero, so
that non-zero factor values represent unexpected surprises from...

provide a rate of return of 18%. If industrial production actually
