FIN 3403 Fall 2008 Exam 2 Review 5. YOU ARE GIVEN THE FOLLOWING DATA: If the risk-free rate is expected to be 4 percent, and the market risk premium is expected to be 7 percent, then what is the required rate of return for Security A based on the CAPM? A. 13.10% B. 13.50% C. 13.40% D. 13.20% E. 13.30% 37. You are given the probability distribution shown below. As you can calculate, the expected return for Security J is 14 percent, the standard deviation for Security J is 7.3485 percent, the expected return for the Market is 11 percent, and the standard deviation for the Market is 3.7417 percent. Based on this information, determine the beta of Security J.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
