Instructor Explanation: First, you need to calculate the market risk premium. You can do this using Parr Paper information: R Parr = R RF + (R M – R RF ) 13.00% = 4.00% + 1.40(R M – R RF ) 6.43% = (R M – R RF ) Using this information, we can now calculate the require return for Clover: R Clover = R RF + (R M – R RF ) R Clover = 4.00% + .80(6.43%) = 9.14% Points Received: 4 of 4 Comments: 3.
