Answer: 7-7 a. Beta Coefficient = 0.028 b. Average rate of return for x = Sum of Year 1 – 7 = 74.2 Average = 10% Standard Deviation = 13% Average for NYSE = 84.2/7 = 12% Standard Deviation = 16.5%
Year NYSE Stock X 1 -26.50% -14.00% 2 37.2 23.00% 3 23.8 17.50% 4 -7.2 2.00% 5 6.6 8.10% 6 20.5 19.40% 7 30.6 18.20% 16.5063 5 0.13050 8 Standard Deviation c. rx = Rrf + (r – Rrf)Bx This equation can be solved for the risk-free rate, rRF, which is the only unknown: 10.6 = Rrf +(12.1 – Rrf)0.56 .44Rrf = 10.6 – 6.8 Rfr =3.8/.44 = 8.6% d. SML Equation: Required Return on Stock = risk free rate + market risk premium
