BM 410 HW #7 2. BKM, chapter 3, #8 (page 85) a. 100*50 = 5000 E/5000 = .5 E = 2500 b. 7500- 100p/100p = .3 p= 7500/(.3*100+100)= 57.69 4. c. Given that you expect 1 Intel to return -10% with a standard deviation of 0.18, what is the expected return and standard deviation of your portfolio? E(rp) = 2.33(.04) + (-1.33)*(-.1) = 22.65 SD = 1.33*.25 = .33 d. Given your answer in (c), what is your 5% Value-at-Risk? 5%VAR= .2265-1.64*.33 = - 32.1% f. If the maintenance margin is 25%, how far can Intel's price increase immediately before you get a margin call? Ignore interest earned on collateral account. 35000- 1000p/1000p = .25 p = 35000/(.25*1000+1000) = 28 g. Suppose the price increases to your answer in part (f).
