    8-2 Investment returns The rate of return on an investment can be  calculated as follows: (Amount received – Amount invested) Return =       ________________________                                                    Amount invested For example, if $1,000 is invested and $1,100 is  returned after one year, the rate of return for this  investment is:  ($1,100 - $1,000) / $1,000 = 10%.

    8-3 What is investment risk? Two types of investment risk Stand-alone risk Portfolio risk  Investment risk is related to the probability  of earning a low or negative actual return. The greater the chance of lower than  expected or negative returns, the riskier the  investment.

    8-7 Why is the T-bill return independent of  the economy?  Do T-bills promise a  completely risk-free return? T-bills will return the promised 5.5%, regardless  of the economy. No, T-bills do not provide a completely risk-free  return, as they are still exposed to inflation.   Although, very little unexpected inflation is likely  to occur over such a short period of time. T-bills are also risky in terms of reinvestment rate  risk. T-bills are risk-free in the default sense of the  word.
