Your eccentric uncle died and left you $100,000.  However, the will stipulated that the entire amount must be invested in common stocks.  Specifically, $50,000 must be invested in a single stock (a one-stock portfolio) and the other $50,000 must be invested in a 100-stock portfolio.  You are very risk averse, so you want to minimize the riskiness of each $50,000 investment.
a.    Describe the kind of stock you would choose for your single-stock portfolio?
b.    What types of stock would you choose the stocks for your 100-stock portfolio?
