## THE SINGLE INDEX MODEL DUE IN WEEK 8

Session 9 A. The single index model SIM! equation is defined as: ( rit rf ) = i + i ( rmt rf ) + it where: rit is the return on the stock i observed in eriod t !instead of redicted at the be"innin" of eriod# rmt is the return on a \$arket inde% observed in eriod t rf is the return on the risk&free asset in the sa\$e eriod

i and i are the stock's a( ha and beta it is the "esid#\$l "e%#"n of stock i in eriod t
The &'\$"\$&%e"is%i& line is defined as: = + ( r r R it i i mt f where:

is the return on the stock i redicted at the be"innin" of R it eriod t !instead of observed in the eriod# rmt is the return on a \$arket inde% redicted in the eriod t rf is the return on the risk&free asset in the sa\$e eriod

## i and i are the stock's a( ha and beta

Jiayu LUO z3219847 D. ;ir\$ s ecific risk refers to the risk that is the resu(t of a deviation of the actua( observed return fro\$ the e% ected return of an invest\$ent of a articu(ar fir\$ as a direct resu(t fro\$ fir\$&s ecific !not \$arket re(ated# news such as a better than e% ected earnin"s announce\$ent. <iven its (ar"e residua( variance !(ar"er than both 210 and /01#- 09= has the (ar"est fir\$&s ecific risk. The variance of residua( return is a ro riate because the residua( return ca tures the difference between the actua( return and that redicted by the sin"(e inde% \$ode(.
