# There are two stocks, A and B, with the following information: src="/qa/attachment/10692496/" alt="Stocks.jpg" />(a) Suppose the initial divisor is 1, construct a price-weighted index using the two stocks. What are the indexlevel I0, and I1 at time 0 and 1, respectively, and the return from t=0 to t=1?(b) When there was a 2-for-1 stock split for stock A at t=1, what is D1? Does the index level change?(c) If you have \$200, how would you construct a portfolio that mimics the price-weighted index? What is thereturn of your investment? (no split)(d) Suppose that I0 = 100, construct a value-weighted index using the two stocks and compute its return (nosplit) ATTACHMENT PREVIEW Download attachment Stocks.jpg
