Expected Return = (0.1)(-0.045) + (.2)(0.046) + (0.5)(0.125) + (0.2)(0.207) = 0.1086 = 10.86% The expected return on Q-mart’s stock is 10.86%. b. Variance ( σ 2 ) = (0.1)(-0.045 – 0.1086) 2 + (0.2)(0.046 – 0.1086) 2 + (0.5)(0.125 – 0.1086) 2 + (0.2)(0.207 – 0.1086) 2 = 0.005214 Standard Deviation ( σ ) = (0.005214) 1/2 = 0.0722 = 7.22% The standard deviation of Q-mart’s returns is 7.22%. 11.2 a. Expected Return = (0.2)(0.05) + (.6)(0.08) + (0.2)(0.15) = 0.088 = 8.8% The expected return on 8.8%. c. Variance ( σ 2 ) = (0.2)(0.05 – 0.088) 2 + (0.6)(0.08 – 0.088) 2 + (0.2)(0.15 – 0.088) 2 = 0.001096 Standard Deviation ( σ ) = (0.001096) 1/2 = 0.03311 = 3.31% The standard deviation of the return is 3.31%. 11.3 a. and b.

Correlation(R A ,R B ) = Covariance(R A , R B ) / ( σ A * σ B ) = 0.004539 / (0.0380 * 0.1202) = 0.9937 The correlation between the returns on Stock A and Stock B is 0.9937. 11.7 a. Expected Return HB = (0.25)(-0.02) + (0.60)(0.092) + (0.15)(0.154) = 0.0733 = 7.33% The expected return on Highbull’s stock is 7.33%.
