Firm A: ROEA 0.00% 5% 10% 15% 20%
Firm B: ROEB -2% 5% 12% 19% 26%
Firm C: ROEC -5% 5% 15% 25% 35%
a. Calculate the expected value and standard deviation for Firm C’s ROE. ROEA = 10.0%, A 5.5%; ROEB 12.0%, B 7.7%.
b. Discuss the relative riskiness of the three firms’ returns. (Assume that these distributions are expected to remain constant over time.)
