Show calculations for part marks. DO write your assumptions if the answer you obtain does not correspond to any of the given choices. 1. If the standard deviations of Stock A and B are 0.20 and 0.30 respectively and the COV(A,B) equals 0.012, what is the correlation coefficient? (1) a. 0.00072 b. 0.20 c. 0.30 d. 2.0 Sol: = 0.012/(.2*.3) = 0.2

2. I have an option of taking a loan from Bank A or Bank B. Bank A offers me a rate of 9%, monthly compounded, whereas Bank B offers me 9.2% half yearly. Which one is better? (SHOW CALCULATIONS converting both to annual rate) (2) a. Bank A – annual rate is …… b. Bank B – annual rate is …. c. ….. is better. Sol: Bank A annual rate * * ( ( )+ )+ = (1.0075)12-1 = 0.0938 = 9.38% = (1.046)2 -1 = 0.094116 = 9.4116%

Bank B rate

3. Security A has a beta of 1.2; security B has a beta of 0.8. If the market variance is 0.30, what is COV (A,B)? (1) a. .255 b. .288 c. .314 d. .355 Use relation :Corr(A,C) = corr(A,B)*corr(B,C) and Cov(A,B) = corr(A,B)*sigma(A) *Sigma(B) Beta(A)*beta(B) = cov(A,m)*cov(B,m) / (sigma m)^4 = corr(A,m)*sigma(A)*corr(B,m)*Sigma(b) / (sigma m)^2 Since cov(a,m) = corr(A,m)*sigma(a)*Sigma(m) Therefore, beta(a)*beta(b)*(sigma m)^2 = corr(A,m)*sigma(A)*corr(B,m)*Sigma(b) = corr(A,B)*sigma(A)*sigma(B) = cov(A,B)

no calc needed here 5. Your portfolio consists of $100. then the rate of return can only increase.8+150000*1.69 EPS = 5 P/E = 57.4= $2.8. However.54 6. its P/E ratio will be __________.33% Easy way to do this is to realize that if the Rm-Rf increases.00. Last year this portfolio had a required rate of return of 13 percent. What is the expected return on a portfolio which is invested 20 percent in stock A. Since it is already 13% the only answer greater than 13% is 15.. Its expected ROE is 12% and its expected EPS is $5. This year nothing has changed except for the fact that the market risk premium has increased by 2 percent (two percentage points). 50. $150. . so it reqd no calc at all. 8. 11. plowback = . div = $5-$2 = $3.12*.2.052 = 57.33. 19. the factor that is multiplied to rm-rf is the weighted avg beta. What is the portfolio's current required rate of return? (2) a.54 c.25 percent c.000 invested in a stock which has a beta = 1.40 percent b.69/5 = 11. 50 percent in stock B.33 percent d.14% c. 9. 7. 8. and 30 percent in stock C? (2) State of Probability of Returns on A Returns on B Returns on B Economy State given state given state given state Boom 20% 18% 9% 6% Normal 70% 11% 7% 9% Recession 10% -10% 4% 13% a. 15.00 EPS = 5.23 d.14% b.4 = 0. 7. The risk-free rate is 7 percent. (2) a.33.8. and $50. g= ROE*reinv rate = . multiply this by the increase in rm-rf which is 2. Which is [100000*.8]/300000. The market capitalization rate on the stock of A Company is 10%..048 Price = D/(r-g) = 3/(.048) = 3/. 5. 8.1-.4 = 5*. 11.4.45% d.45 percent Most people got this right.2+50000*1. If the firm's plough-back ratio is 40%.000 invested in a stock which has a beta = 1. and you have the answer to be 2.33 b.000 invested in a stock which has a beta = 0.
