#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Games

Purchase Price = \$96
Number of shares = 75
Purchase Value = 75*96 = \$7200
Value after Quarter 1 = 7200*(1+0.20) = \$8640
Value after Quarter 2 = 8640*(1+0.08) = \$9331.2
Value after Quarter 3 = 9331.2*(1+0.03) = \$9611.14

Thrones

Purchase Price = \$450
Number of shares = 120
Purchase Value = 450*120 = \$54000
Value after Quarter 1 = 54000*(1-0.20) = \$43200
Value after Quarter 2 = 43200*(1-0.20) = \$34560
Value after Quarter 3 = 34560*(1-0.20) = \$27648

Total Purchase Value of Portfolio = 7200 + 54000 = \$61200

Total Value after 3 Quarters = 9611.14 + 27649 = \$37260.14

Buy and Hold Return = (Current Value - Purchase Price)/Purchase Price *100%

= (37260.14 - 61200)/61200 * 100%

= -39.12%
