Assume that you observe the following percentage returns (in decimal form) for the Market and for Firm A. Use regression analysis to determine how the returns for Firm A are related to the returns for the Market (determine the intercept and slope, setting the Market as the independent variable and Firm A as the dependent variable), then calculate the best guess for what the returns on Firm A will be in 2003, if the return on the market in 2003 is 8 percent (0.08). Note: You must use your financial calculator. You cannot calculate the slope using rise/run.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
