Unformatted text preview: E120 Homework 6 Due 08/12/2011 Problem 1: Suppose that there are 2 assets with r 1 = 0 . 20 , 1 = 0 . 40 ,r 2 = 0 . 10 , 2 = 0 . 25 , 12 = 0 . 05. 1. If r f = 0 . 02, what are the market portfolio return and variance? What are the corresponding weights? 2. If r f = 0 . 05, what are the market portfolio return and variance? What are the corresponding weights? Problem 2: Suppose the riskfree asset has expected return of 0 . 05, and the market portfolio has ex pected return 0 . 15 and standard deviation 0 . 18. What is the minimum standard deviation you can achieve if you desire an expected return of 10%? Problem 3: Suppose the riskfree asset has expected return of 0 . 05, and the market portfolio has expected return 0 . 15 and standard deviation 0 . 18. Is it possible for you to achieve an expected return of 20% and a standard deviation of 20%? Why, or why not? Problem 4: Assume that the expected rate of return on the market portfolio is 23% and the rate of return on Tbills (the riskfree rate) is 7%. The standard deviation of the market is 32%.return on Tbills (the riskfree rate) is 7%....
