"Suppose the rate of return on short-term government securities (perceived to be risk-free) is 5%. Suppose also that the expected rate of return required by the market for a portfolio with a beta of 1 is 12%. According to the CAPM:
a) What is the expected rate of return on the market portfolio?
b) What would be the expected rate of return on a stock with β = 0?
c) Suppose you consider buying a share of stock at \$40. The stock is expected to pay \$3 in
dividends next year and you expect to sell it then for \$41. The stock risk has been evaluated
at β = −0.5. Is the stock overpriced or underpriced?

Question:Cost of Capital Preference Dividend
Suppose the rate of return on short-term government securities (perceived to be risk-free) is 5%.Suppose also that the expected rate of return required by the market for a portfolio with a beta of 1 is12%. According to the CAPM:

Solution:

a.

As per CAPM,E[R
β=1
] = R

+ β(E[R
m
] − R
)E[R
β=1
] = 5% + 1(12% − 5%)

E[R
β=1
] = 12%
(Equal to market return, as market beta is equal to 1)b.

As per CAPM,E[R
β=
0
] = R

+ β(E[R
m
] − R
)E[R
β=
0
] = 5% + 0
(12% − 5%)

E[R
β=
0
] = 5%
(Equal to risk free return, as market beta is equal to 0)c.

E[R
β=−0.5
] = R

+ β(E[R
m
] − R
)
= 5% − 0.5(12% − 5%)
= 1.5% says the CAPMP
0
=E[P
1
] + E[D
1
] / 1 + R= (41 + 3) / (1 + 0.015)
= \$43.35So the stock is underpriced according to the CAPM
