Plot the risk-return relation for the 1. following two assets: following • Expected returns Bond = 5% Stock = 7% • Standard deviation Standard Bond = 8% Stock = 12% Bond • Correlation coefficient = -0.5 2. What’s the minimum volatility we can 2. reach using these two assets? Ans: 4.77% reach 5-40 More than 2 assets – we will discuss when we use Matlab 5-41 CAPM model and market risk 5-42 Specification of CAPM Model So, the relation between individual stock r i and the market portfolio rm can now be stated as: market can E(ri) - rf = α + β [E(rm) - rf ] or rit - rft = α + β [ rmt - rft ] + εit or – Note that, we need to consider the risk-free rate Note – β measures “market risk exposure” (“market beta”) of (“market stock i stock – α measures “abnormal returns”...
