Question

An investor invests 100 dollars in a stock. The return X (in dollars) after 10 years has MGF given by M(t) = exp(180t + 800t^2 ).

(a) Find the mean, variance and standard deviation of the return.

(b) Find the probability that the return is more than the initial investment.

(c) Find the probability that the return is in between 150 and 200 dollars.

(d) If Y = e^(X−100), find the density of Y .

One year ago, a U.S. investor converted dollars to yen and
purchased 100 shares of stock in a Japanese company at a price of
3,150 yen per share. The stock's total purchase cost was 315,000
yen. At the time of purchase, in the currency market 1 yen equaled
$0.00962. Today, the stock is selling at a price of 3,465 yen per
share, and in the currency market $1 equals 95 yen. The stock does
not pay a dividend. If the...

The return on stock X has mean 5 and standard deviation 3. The
return on stock Y has mean 8 and standard deviation 10. The
variance of an equal portfolio of the two stocks (that is, 0.5X +
0.5Y) is 19.75. What is the correlation between X and Y?

onsider two assets X and Y , each of which costs $100 to
purchase. After one year, X pays out $130 with probability p and 75
with probability 1 − p. Asset Y pays out $60 with probability p and
$200 with probability 1 − p
1-A) Find the value of p such that the two assets have
identical expected returns
1-B)Given this value of p, calculate the standard
deviation of the return of these two assets.

Given the following information on a portfolio of Stock X and
Stock Y, what is the portfolio standard deviation?
Probability of boom state = 30%
Probability of normal state = 70%
Expected return on X = 14.5%
Expected return on Y = 14%
Variance on X = 0.004725
Variance on Y = 0.0189
Portfolio weight on X = 50%
Portfolio weight on Y = 50%
Correlation between X and Y = -1

Stock X has a 10% expected return, a beta coefficient of 0.9,
and a 35% standard deviation of expected returns. Stock Y has a
12.5% expected return, a beta coefficient of 1.2, and a 25%
standard deviation. The risk-free rate is 6%, and the market risk
premium is 5%.
a. Calculate each stock’s coefficient of variation.
b. Which stock is riskier for a diversified investor?
c. Calculate each stock’s required rate of return.
d. On the basis of the two...
