Unformatted text preview: 2 . Therefore, we can always have positive payo, it is a arbitrage strategy. Question 3 (a) w A = 2 B AB 2 A2 AB + 2 B = 0 . 62 , w B = 1w A = 0 . 38 . 1 (b) w A = rr B r Ar B = 1 . 67 , w B = 1w A =. 67 . (c) A = AM 2 M = 0 . 2 , B = BM 2 M = 0 . 5 . Then from CAPM, we have r Ar f = A ( r Mr f ) r Br f = B ( r Mr f ) Therefore, r f = 0 . 1, r m = 0 . 2. Question 3 (a) FALSE. The security with beta of 0 is the riskfree asset, which still has positive return. (b) TRUE. Since F = S (1 + r f ) T , and r f > 0. (c) TRUE. If putcall parity is not satised, we can construct arbitrage strategy (need to explain in more details). 2...
