Concept of returns

## •Required Returns (Ex post) are

statistically derived from historical
observations.

## •Expected Returns (Ex ante) are

statistically derived expected values from
future estimates of observations.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 4 SAPM

Probability & Returns

## •In the world of uncertainty , the expected

returns may or may not materialize.
•The expected rate of return for any
asset is the weighted average rate of
return using the probability of each rate of
return as the weight.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 5 SAPM

•E.g.:- consider the range of returns under the
possible states of economic conditions. What rate
of return can you expect ?

## Economic Rate of Probability E(R)

(2) 3)

## Growth 18.5 0.25 4.63

Expansion 10.5 0.25 2.62
Stagnation 1.0 0.25 0.25
Decline -6.0 0.25 -1.50

Risk & Returns

## • Risk the chance that the actual

outcome from an investment will differ
from the expected outcome.
•Investment decisions always involve a
trade off between risk & return.

Sources of Risk

## • Factors which make any financial

asset risky are:
environmental factors involved.
2. Market Risk: variability in returns due
to the fluctuations in the securities
market.

Sources of Risk

## 3. Liquidity Risk: ease with which a

security can be bought or sold without
much transaction cost.

## 4. Financial Risk: influenced by the

degree of financial leverage

Sources of Risk

interest rates.

## 6. Inflation Risk: change in the

power of the investors.

Measuring Risk

## •Risk of an asset can be measured in

terms of its variance.

## •More the deviation from the expected

value , more riskier the asset.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 11 SAPM

•E.g. :- Jenson & Nicholson, a paint company, has the
following dividend per share (DIV) and the market
price per share (AMP) for the period 87-92

1987 1.53 31.25
1988 1.53 20.75
1989 1.53 30.88

R88 = [1.53 + 20.75-31.25]/ 31.25 = -0.287
Similarly,

{-28.7+56.2+123.4+52.2+57} = 52%

## To determine the riskness of the share, we calculate the

variation of the returns :
2 =1/5{ (-28.7-52)2 + (56.2-52)2 + (123.4 – 52)2 + (52.2-52)2
+
(57-52)2} = 2330.63 or S.D = 48.28

as a measure of risk
• Standard deviation (σi) measures total, or stand-
alone, risk.
• The larger σi is, the lower the probability that actual
returns will be closer to expected returns.
• Larger σi is associated with a wider probability
distribution of returns.
• Difficult to compare standard deviations, because
return has not been accounted for.

Capital Market Theory
• Dominant principle
• Markowitz’s Portfolio theory
• Two asset portfolio
• Efficient frontier
• The CAPM

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 29 SAPM

The Dominance Principle
• States that among all investments with a
given return, the one with the least risk is
desirable; or given the same level of risk,
the one with the highest return is most
desirable.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 30 SAPM

Dominance Principle Example
• Security E(Ri) 
ATW 7% 3%
GAC 7% 4%
YTC 15% 15%
FTR 3% 3%
HTC 8% 12%

## • ATW dominates GAC

• ATW dominates FTR

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 31 SAPM

Capital Market Theory
Markowitz Model
Markowitz model generates an efficient
frontier,which is a set of efficient portfolios.

## •A portfolio is said to be efficient if it offers the

maximum expected return for a given level of risk or
minimum risk for a given level of expected returns.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 32 SAPM

Markowitz Diversification
• Although there are no securities with
perfectly negative correlation, almost all
assets are less than perfectly correlated.
Therefore, you can reduce total risk (p)
through diversification. If we consider
many assets at various weights, we can
generate the efficient frontier.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 33 SAPM

Risk revisited
• Unsystematic Risk
– ... is that portion of an asset’s total risk which
can be eliminated through diversification
• Systematic Risk
– ... is that risk which cannot be eliminated
– Inherent in the marketplace

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 35 SAPM

Efficient Frontier
• The Efficient Frontier represents all the
dominant portfolios in risk/return space.
• There is one portfolio (M) which can be
considered the market portfolio if we
analyze all assets in the market. Hence,
M would be a portfolio made up of assets
that correspond to the real relative weights
of each asset in the market.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 36 SAPM

Efficient Frontier (continued)
• Assume you have 20 assets.
• you can calculate all possible portfolio
combinations.
• The Efficient Frontier will consist of those
portfolios with the highest return given the
same level of risk or minimum risk given
the same return (Dominance Rule)

Feasible and Efficient Portfolios

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 38 SAPM

• The feasible set of portfolios represents all
portfolios that can be constructed from a
given set of stocks.
• An efficient portfolio is one that offers:
– the most return for a given amount of risk, or
– the least risk for a give amount of return.
• The collection of efficient portfolios is called
the efficient set or efficient frontier.

## Put the investor’s indifference curves and

indifference curve is tangent to the efficient frontier.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 41 SAPM

• Indifference curves reflect an investor’s
attitude toward risk as reflected in his or her
among investors because of differences in
risk aversion.
• An investor’s optimal portfolio is defined by
the tangency point between the efficient set
and the investor’s indifference curve.

What is the CAPM?

## ■ The CAPM is an equilibrium model that

specifies the relationship between risk and
required rate of return for assets held in well-
diversified portfolios.
■ Derived using principles of diversification with
simplified assumptions
■ Markowitz, Sharpe, Lintner and Mossin are
researchers credited with its development.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 46 SAPM

M = Market portfolio
rf = Risk free rate
E(rM) - rf = Market risk premium

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 47 SAPM

What are the assumptions of the
CAPM?

## • Investors all think in terms of a single

holding period.
• All investors have identical expectations.
• Investors can borrow or lend unlimited
amounts at the risk-free rate.

(More...)

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 48 SAPM

What are the assumptions of the
CAPM?
• There are no taxes and no
transactions costs.
• All investors are price takers, that is,
influence stock prices.
• Quantities of all assets are given and
fixed.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 49 SAPM

What impact does kRF have on the
efficient frontier?

## • When a risk-free asset is added to the

feasible set, investors can create
portfolios that combine this asset with a
portfolio of risky assets.
• The straight line connecting kRF with M,
the tangency point between the line and
the old efficient set, becomes the new
efficient frontier.

What is the Capital Market Line?

## • The Capital Market Line (CML) is all

linear combinations of the risk-free asset
and Portfolio M.
• Portfolios below the CML are inferior.
– The CML defines the new efficient set.
– All investors will choose a portfolio on the

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 53 SAPM

What does the CML tell us?

## • The expected rate of return on any

efficient portfolio is equal to the risk-
free rate plus a risk premium.
• The optimal portfolio for any investor is
the point of tangency between the CML
and the investor’s indifference curves.

What is the Security Market Line (SML)?

## • The CML gives the risk/return

relationship for efficient portfolios.
• The Security Market Line (SML), also
part of the CAPM, gives the risk/return
relationship for individual stocks.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 56 SAPM

The SML Equation
• The measure of risk used in the SML is
the beta coefficient of company i, ß.
• Where,
 = [COV(ri,rm)] /  2

Slope, SML = E(rm) - rf
SML = rf + [E(rm) - rf]

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 57 SAPM

What are our conclusions
regarding the CAPM?

## • Recent studies have questioned its

validity.
• Investors seem to be concerned with
both market risk and stand-alone risk.
Therefore, the SML may not produce a
correct estimate of ki.

## • If beta = 1.0, stock is average risk.

• If beta > 1.0, stock is riskier than
average.
• If beta < 1.0, stock is less risky than
average.
• Most stocks have betas in the range of
0.5 to 1.5.

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 62 SAPM

BETA FOR Portfolios….(?)

## • Betas of individual securities are not

good estimators of future risk.
• Betas of portfolios of 10 or more
randomly selected stocks are
reasonably stable.
• Past portfolio betas are good estimates
of future portfolio volatility.

Question # 6
• The expected return on the market portfolio & the
risk free rate of return are estimated to be 13% &
9% resp. ABC Ltd. Has Just paid a dividend of Rs.
2per share with annual growth rate of 7%. The
sensitivity index (beta) of ABC has been found to be
1.2
1. Find out the equilibrium price for the shares of ABC
Ltd.
2. Examine the change in the price if
(ii)expected growth rate of dividends increases to
10%
(iii)market sensitivity index becomes 1.3 for the
script.

Solution # 6

## • Using CAPM, R(i) = R(f) +ß*(R(m) – R(f))

the req. rate of return(R) = 9% +1.2*(13-9)=13.8%
Now , R = 13.8%
D = Rs. 2 g = 7%
1. The equilibrium price (P) = D(1+g)/ (R-g)…Annuity
due
or, P = 2.14/ .068 = Rs. 31.47

## Prof. Bhaskar Sinha 71 SAPM

Solution # 6
2. Effect on price :

## (i) if the risk premium increases by 2%, Then R =

13.8% +2%
Therefore the equilibrium price (P) = Rs. 24.32

(ii) g=10%
We obtain, P =Rs. 57.9

## (iii) Beta = 1.3 then, R = 14.2%

Hence , P = Rs. 29.72
