Unformatted text preview: Lecture 10 Lecture 10 The Capital Asset Pricing Model The Capital Asset Pricing Model Expectation, variance, standard error (deviation), covariance, and correlation of returns may be based on (i) fundamental analysis (ii) historical data Preliminaries Fundamental or Theoretical Analysis S possible states s probability of state s = 1,2,,S R s likely return is state s Notation 4 business cycle states (boom, normal, recession, depression) 3 industry demand states 2 firm demand share states 3 firm cost states Then, there are 4*3*2*3 = 72 possible states (or situations) Example: Suppose there are ( 29 = = = S 1 s s s R R E Expectation (mean) ( 29 ( 29 =- = = S 1 s 2 s s ER R R var 2 Variance 2 = Standard error ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 B Bs S 1 s A As s B A AB R R R R R , R Cov -- = = = returns on stock A R As s = 1,,S returns on stock B R Bs s = 1,,S Covariance measures how two random variables are related ( 29 ( 29 AB AB sign sign = 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 - = A B B A A B A B B A A B ( 29 B A A B B A A B R , R corr = = Correlation is a normalized covariance Note !
