# Assume that the risk-free rate

1. Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the expected rate of return on the market is 17%. A stock has an expected rate of return of 6%. What is its beta? (Negative value should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

2. Suppose that borrowing is restricted so that the zero-beta version of the CAPM holds. The expected return on the market portfolio is 14%, and on the zero-beta portfolio it is 6%. What is the expected return on a portfolio with a beta of 0.8? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

# Assume that the risk-free rate

Assume that the risk-free rate, RF, is currently 8%, the market return, RM, is 12%, and asset A has a beta, of 1.10. (could be done on word document or excel).

1. Draw the security market line (SML)
2. Use the CAPM to calculate the required return, on asset A.
3. Assume that as a result of recent economic events, inflationary expectations have declined by 3%, lowering RF and RM to 5% and 9%, respectively. Draw the new SML on the axes in part a, and calculate and show the new required return for asset A.
4. Assume that as a result of recent events, investors have become more risk averse, causing the market return to rise by 2%, to be14%. Ignoring the shift in part c, draw the new SML on the same set of axes that you used before, and calculate and show the new required return for asset A.
5. From the previous changes, what conclusions can be drawn about the impact of (1) decreased inflationary expectations and (2) increased risk aversion on the required returns of risky assets?
