11. The expected dollar return on the investment in equities is $18,000 compared to the $5,000 expected return for T-bills. Therefore, the expected risk premium is $13,000. 12. E(r) = [0.2 × ( 25%)] + [0.3 × 10%] + [0.5 × 24%] =10% 13. E(r X ) = [0.2 × ( 20%)] + [0.5 × 18%] + [0.3 × 50%] =20% E(r Y) = [0.2 × ( 15%)] + [0.5 × 20%] + [0.3 × 10%] =10% 14. σ X 2 = [0.2 × (– 20 – 20) 2 ] + [0.5 × (18 – 20) 2 ] + [0.3 × (50 – 20) 2 ] = 592 σ X = 24.33% σ Y 2 = [0.2 × (– 15 – 10) 2 ] + [0.5 × (20 – 10) 2 ] + [0.3 × (10 – 10) 2 ] = 175 σ X = 13.23% 15. E(r) = (0.9 × 20%) + (0.1 × 10%) =19% 16. The probability that the economy will be neutral is 0.50, or 50%. Given a neutral economy, the stock will experience poor performance 30% of the time. The probability of both poor stock performance and a neutral economy is therefore: 0.30 × 0.50 = 0.15 = 15% 17. E(r) = (0.1 × 15%) + (0.6 × 13%) + (0.3 × 7%) = 11.4%
