Question

Consider two stocks, Stock D, with an expected return of 13
percent and a standard deviation of 25 percent, and Stock I, an
international company, with an expected return of 6 percent and a
standard deviation of 16 percent. The correlation between the two
stocks is −.14. What are the expected return and standard deviation
of the minimum variance portfolio? **(Do not round
intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percent rounded
to 2 decimal places.)**

Answer #1

Consider two stocks, Stock D, with an expected return of 11
percent and a standard deviation of 26 percent, and Stock I, an
international company, with an expected return of 9 percent and a
standard deviation of 19 percent. The correlation between the two
stocks is –0.12. What are the expected return and standard
deviation of the minimum variance portfolio? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percent rounded
to 2 decimal places.).

Assume Stocks A and B have the following characteristics: Stock
Expected Return Standard Deviation A 8.3% 32.3% B 14.3% 61.3% The
covariance between the returns on the two stocks is .0027. a.
Suppose an investor holds a portfolio consisting of only Stock A
and Stock B. Find the portfolio weights, XA and XB, such that the
variance of her portfolio is minimized. (Hint: Remember that the
sum of the two weights must equal 1.) (Do not round intermediate
calculations and...

Consider a portfolio that contains two stocks. Stock "A" has an
expected return of 15% and a standard deviation of 18%. Stock "B"
has an expected return of -1% and a standard deviation of 25%. The
proportion of your wealth invested in stock "A" is 50%. The
correlation between the two stocks is -0.1.

The stock of Bruin, Inc., has an expected return of 22 percent
and a standard deviation of 37 percent. The stock of Wildcat Co.
has an expected return of 12 percent and a standard deviation of 52
percent. The correlation between the two stocks is .49. Calculate
the expected return and standard deviation of the minimum variance
portfolio.

Stock 1 has a expected return of 14% and a standard deviation
of 12%.
Stock 2 has a expected return of 11% and a standard deviation
of 11%.
Correlation between the two stocks is 0.5.
Create a minimum variance portfolio with long positions in both
stocks.
What is the return on this portfolio?

Refer to the table below: 3 Doors, Inc. Down Co. Expected
return, E(R) 12 % 13 % Standard deviation, σ 30 15 Correlation .36
Using the information provided on the two stocks in the table
above, find the expected return and standard deviation on the
minimum variance portfolio. (Do not round intermediate

There are two stocks in the market, Stock A and Stock B . The
price of Stock A today is $85. The price of Stock A next year will
be $74 if the economy is in a recession, $97 if the economy is
normal, and $107 if the economy is expanding. The probabilities of
recession, normal times, and expansion are .30, .50, and .20,
respectively. Stock A pays no dividends and has a correlation of
.80 with the market portfolio....
