write your ﬁnal answer in the provided boxes. You must show work where applicable. , 3. You have 90 minutes to complete the exam. There are 8 pages and 20 questions. Maximum possible score is 100 out of 100. True/False (4 points each / Total = 36 points) 1. The standard deviation on a portfolio can be greater than that on every False asset in the portfolio. 2. It is easier to take control over a ﬁrm whose board of directors has True False
staggered election terms. 3. If Bond A has greater time to maturity than Bond B, then Bond A’s price True @ must be more sensitive to changes in interest rate ﬂuctuations. ‘ z
4. Higher bond duration indicates that the bond’s price is more sensitive to @ False
ﬂuctuations in interest rates. 5. If you hold a zerocoupon bond to maturity, then your annualized rate of False return is guaranteed to equal the original yield to maturity at time of
purchase (assuming the issuer does not default). 6. The ask price is the price at which a dealer/specialist/market maker will True False
sell a security to you. i
7. The effective annual rate (EAR) tells you the rate at which your real Tme buying power increases. 8. According to CAPM, the risk premium on an asset is determined entirely @ False
by its beta and the market risk premium. 1 out of8 Midterm #2: PRACTICE EXAM 9. Consider assets A and B, both with identical standard deviations. Then a True @
portfolio with positive weights on each of these assets, must have a
standard deviation less than that on either asset. (This portfolio is not
invested in any other assets) Multiple Choice (5 points each / Total = 15 points)
9. All else equal, if the expected return on Stock X suddenly decreases, then... A) The price per share decreases. Final Answer: B) The contemporaneous realized return is negative
C) Both A and B b either A nor B 10. Which of the following is true of a bond selling below its face value: Final Answer: A) Its yield to maturity is less than the coupon rate.
B) Its current yield is less than the coupon rate.
C) Both A and B b @ither A nor B 11. Suppose that today, you just purchased a painting for $100,000. If in 10 years (time t=10)
