least likely an assumption of the APT model? asset returns are explained by a factor model. a large number of available assets for investment allow investors to eliminate non- systematic risk through diversification. no arbitrage opportunities are available to investors because capital markets are perfectly competitive. asset returns are normally distributed. Given a three-factor arbitrage pricing theory (APT) model, what is the expected return on the Premium Dividend Yield Fund? The factor risk premiums to factors 1, 2 and 3 are 8%, 12% and 5%, respectively. The fund has sensitivities to the factors 1, 2, and 3 of 2.0, 1.0 and 1.0, respectively. The risk-free rate is 3.0%. 36.0%. 50.0%. 28.0%. 33.0%. An arbitrage pricing theory (APT) model has the following characteristics: The risk free rate is 3.8 percent. Factor risk premiums are: (7 percent) A. (4 percent) B. (2 percent) C. (10 percent) D. Assume Silver Linings Fund has the following sensitivities to the factors: Sensitivity to A is 0.5. Sensitivity to B is 1.2. Sensitivity to C is 2.1.

    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.
