Assume that Stock A had a 2-1 split during this period.C. the rate of return for the second period (t= 1 to t= 2). A. The price-weighted index at time 0 is (70 + 85 + 105)/3 = 86.67. The price-weighted index at time 1 is (72 + 81 + 98)/3 = 83.67. The return on the index is 83.67/86.67 - 1 = -3.46%.B. The divisor must change to reflect the stock split. Because nothing else fundamentally changed, the value of the index should remain 83.67. So the new divisor is (36 + 81 + 98)/83.67 = 2.57. The index value is (36 + 81 + 98)/2.57 = 83.67.2-78
C. The rate of return for the second period is 83.67/83.67 - 1 = 0.00%.AACSB: AnalyticBlooms: EvaluateDifficulty: ChallengeTopic: Market Indexes85.Based on the information given for the three stocks, calculate the first-period rates of return (from t= 0 to t= 1) onA. a market-value-weighted index.
