Feedback:
The portfolio weight of an asset is equal to the total investment in that asset divided by the total portfolio value.
First, we will find the portfolio value, which is:
Total value = 65($73) + 120($62)
Total value = $12,185
The portfolio weight for each stock is:
WeightA = 65($73)/$12,185
WeightA = 0.3894
WeightB = 120($62)/$12,185
WeightB = 0.6106

Feedback:
The expected return of a portfolio is the sum of the weight of each asset times the expected return of each asset.
The total value of the portfolio is:
Total value = $1,800 + 1,800
Total value = $3,600
So, the expected return of this portfolio is:
E(Rp) = ($1,800/$3,600)(0.09) + ($1,800/$3,600)(0.13)
E(Rp) = 0.11 or 11%
