It is recommended that you look at these problems only after you fully understand how to solve the problem sets, the examples we covered in class, and the ones in the lecture notes. 3.

FIN 350 Solutions to Practice Questions 2 1. (a) (i) Projects X, Y and Z have returns greater than 12%. (ii) Using the SML ( r equity = r f + β ( r M- r f )) to calculate the required return for each project we get: E( r W ) = . 05 + . 60( . 12- . 05) = . 0920 < . 11, so accept W. E( r X ) = . 05 + . 85( . 12- . 05) = . 1095 < . 13, so accept X. E( r Y ) = . 05 + 1 . 15( . 12- . 05) = . 1305 > . 13, so reject Y. E( r Z ) = . 05 + 1 . 50( . 12- . 05) = . 1550 < . 19, so accept Z. (iii) Project W would be incorrectly rejected; project Y would be incorrectly accepted....
