DEMONSTRATION LECTURE QUESTIONS TOPIC 5 RISK AND RETURN PART 2 QUESTION 1 a) If the expected return on the market is 12% while the risk-free rate is 5%, does the following description of securities constitute an equilibrium situation? Security Actual Return β i 1 15.5% 1.5 2 6.4% 0.2 3 1.5% -0.5 4 9.5% 0.8 5 14.8% 1.2 b) For those securities that are not in equilibrium, are the securities expected to rise in price or fall in price? SOLUTION Question 1 ( 29 r r r r i f m f i = + - β ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 m Equilibriu In % 5 . 15 5 . 1 5 12 5 r 1 = - + = ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 m Equilibriu In % 4 . 6 2 . 0 5 12 5 2 = - + = r ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 m Equilibriu In % 5 . 1 5 . 0 5 12 5 3 = - - + = r ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 m Equilibriu In Not % 6 . 10 8 . 0 5 12 5 4 = - + = r Actual Return is 9.5%, but CAPM predicts 10.6%.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
