Expected return on the market. Expected return on the portfolio. Risk-free rate. Consider the following graph of the Security Market Line (SML). The letters X, Y, and Z represent risky asset portfolios. The SML crosses the y-axis at the point 0.07. The expected market return equals 13.0%. Note: The graph is NOT drawn to scale. Using the graph above and the information provided, which of the following statements is most accurate? Portfolio X's required return is greater than the market expected return. The expected return (or holding period return) for Portfolio Z equals 14.8%. The correct label for the x-axis is total risk. Portfolio Y is undervalued. Beta is least accurately described as: a measure of the sensitivity of a security's return to the market return. the factor by which the market risk premium is multiplied in the Capital Asset Pricing Model. a standardized measure of the total risk of a security. the covariance of a security's returns with the market return, divided by the variance of market returns.

Consider the following graph of the risk-free asset R and the efficient frontier. The letters K, W, X Y, and Z represent risky portfolios. Portfolio M is the market portfolio. The lines R X and R Y represent the combination of the risk-free asset and the risky portfolio. Which of the following statements about the above graph is least accurate? Portfolios W and Z are perfectly positively correlated with each other. Investors on the capital market line to the right of M are leveraged and hold more than 100% of portfolio M. Portfolio K is possible, but not the most efficient because it does not fall on the efficient frontier and is overvalued. Point S represents the standard deviation of returns on the market portfolio. A portfolio to the right of the market portfolio on the capital market line (CML) is created by: holding more than 100% of the risky asset. fully diversifying. holding both the risk-free asset and the market portfolio. buying the risk-free asset. f f f

    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.
