Answer #1

**Solution:**

Holding period Return is the return earned on an investment for the period during which it is held.

The formula for calculating the holding period return is

= ( Sale price + Income earned during the holding period – Purchase Price ) / Purchase Price

As per the information given in the question is

Purchase price: $ 30.43

Sale price : $ 39.75

Income earned during the holding period = Dividends earned = $ 2.04

Applying the above values in the formula we have

= ( 39.75 + 2.04 – 30.43 ) / 30.43

= 11.36 / 30.43

= 0.3733

= 37.33 %

**Thus the HPR i.e., Holding period return is 37.33 %
