The expected return on this portfolio is:

Q4.What is the beta of a share given that its correlation with the market is 0.369 and its standard deviation is 0.07, while the standard deviation of the market is 0.028??

Q5.The return on treasury notes is expected to be 3%. The market risk premium is 7%. What is the expected return on a stock with a beta of 0.9??

Q6.In calculating your answer for all of the questions below use up to a maximum of seven decimal places, then round-off to four decimal places for your final answer

Assume the following information:

 Asset Beta Standard Deviation Correlation Coefficient SABCo RMUT Co. SABCo 1 0.029 1 0.3 RMUT Co. 0.98 0.03 0.3 1

Also assume that the rate of return on a 10-year Treasury Bond is 2.38% and that the expected return on the market portfolio is 5.62% p.a.?

a)What is the equilibrium rate of return on SABco?

b)What is the equilibrium rate of return on RMUT Co.?

c)What is the equilibrium return on a portfolio comprised of a 66% weighting in SABCo and the balance in RMUT Co.?

d)?What is the standard deviation of the portfolio constructed in Part C?

e)What is the systemic risk of the portfolio constructed in Part C??
