5-2 Investment returns The rate of return on an investment can be  calculated as follows: (Amount received – Amount invested) Return =       ________________________                                                    Amount invested For example, if \$1,000 is invested and \$1,100 is  returned after one year, the rate of return for this  investment is:  (\$1,100 - \$1,000) / \$1,000 = 10%.
5-3 What is investment risk? Two types of investment risk Stand-alone risk Portfolio risk  Investment risk is related to the probability  of earning a low or negative actual return. The greater the chance of lower than  expected or negative returns, the riskier the  investment.

5-7 Why is the T-bill return independent of  the economy?  Do T-bills promise a  completely risk-free return? T-bills will return the promised 8%, regardless of  the economy. No, T-bills do not provide a risk-free return, as  they are still exposed to inflation.  Although, very  little unexpected inflation is likely to occur over  such a short period of time. T-bills are also risky in terms of reinvestment rate  risk. T-bills are risk-free in the default sense of the  word.

5-8 How do the returns of HT and Coll.  behave in relation to the market? HT – Moves with the economy, and has  a positive correlation.  This is typical. Coll. – Is countercyclical with the  economy, and has a negative  correlation.  This is unusual.

### 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.
