Chapter 15 International Portfolio InvestmentThe stock market of country A has an expected return of 8%, and standard deviation of expected return of 5%. The stock market of country B has an expected return of 16% and standard deviation of expected return of 10%.93. Find the expected return of a portfolio with half invested in A and half invested in B. 94. Assume that the correlation of expected return between A and B is negative 1. Calculate the standard deviation of expected return of the portfolio in the last question. 95. Is it reasonable to conclude that your portfolio is on the efficient frontier? If not, then prove your point by finding just one portfolio weighting between A and B that offers more return with less risk. If you think it is on the efficient frontier, why do you think this? No points for guessing. 15-65
