Correlation (S&P, R2000) = 0.002604/ [(0.0361)(0.0753)] = .9579
Correlation (S&P, Nikkei) = 0.001054/ [(0.0361)(0.0325)] = 0.8984
Correlation (R2000, Nikkei) = 0.002054/ [(0.0753)(0.0325)] =0.8393
7(e).
The resulting correlation coefficients suggest a strong positive correlation in returns for the S&P 500 and the Russell 2000 combinations (.96), preventing any meaningful reduction in risk (.05518) when they are combined. Since the S&P 500 and Nikkei have a negative correlation (.90), their combination results in a lower standard deviation (.009875).

3b. The CML slope, [E(RMKT ) – RFR ]/ σMKT , is the ratio of risk premium per unit of risk. Portfolio R has the highest ratio, 0.5000, of these five portfolios so it is most likely the market portfolio. Thus, the slope of the CML is 0.5; its intercept is 3%, the riskfree rate.
3c. The CML equation, based on the above analysis, is E(Rportfolio ) = 3% + (0.50) σportfolio . If the desired standard deviation is 7.0% the expected portfolio return is 6.5%:
E(Rportfolio ) = 3% + (0.50) (7%) = 6.5% . The answer is no, it is not possible to earn an expected return of 7% with a portfolio whose standard deviation is 7%.
3d. Using the CML equation, we set the expected portfolio return equal to 7% and solve for the standard deviation:
E(Rportfolio ) = 7% = 3% + (0.50) σportfolio 4% = (0.50) σportfolio σ = 4%/0.50 = 8%.
Thus, 8% is the standard deviation consistent with an expected return of 7%.
To find the portfolio weights with result in a risk of 8% and expected return of 7%, recall that the covariance between the riskfree asset and the market portfolio is zero. Thus, the portfolio standard deviation calculation simplifies to: σportfolio = wMKT (σMKT ) and the weight of the riskfree asset is 1 – wMKT .
Doing this, we have σportfolio = 8% = wMKT (14.0% ), so wMKT = 8%/14.0% = 0.5714 and wriskfree asset = 1 – 0.5714 = 0.4286. As a check, the weighted average expected return should equal 7%:
0.5714 (10%) + 0.4286(3%) = 7.0% which it does. Remember to use the expected return of the market portfolio, 10%, in this calculation.
3e. To find the portfolio weights with result in a risk of 18.2%, recall that the covariance between the riskfree asset and the market portfolio is zero. Thus, the portfolio standard deviation calculation simplifies to: σportfolio = wMKT (σMKT ) and the weight of the riskfree asset is 1 – wMKT .
Doing this, we have σportfolio = 18.2% = wMKT (14.0% ), so wMKT = 18.2%/14.0% = 1.30; wriskfree asset = 1 – (1.3) = 0.30. This portfolio is a borrowing portfolio; 30% of the funds will be borrowed (we will use margin) and 130% of the initial funds are invested in the market portfolio.
The expected return will be the weighted average of the riskfree and market portfolio returns:
1.30 (10%) + (0.30) (3%) = 12.1% .
We can also use the CML equation to find the expected return:
E(Rportfolio ) = 3% + (0.50) σportfolio = 3% + (0.50)(18.2%) = 12.1%. Thus, both methods agree, as they should, on the expected portfolio return.
4. With a risk premium of 5% and riskfree rate of 4.5%, the security market line is:
E(return) = 4.5% + (5%)β. Information about the level of diversification of the portfolios is not given, nor is information about the market portfolio. But a portfolio’s beta is the weighted average of the betas of the securities held in the portfolio so the SML can be used to evaluate managers Y and Z.
4a. Expected return (Y) = 4.5% + (5%)β = 4.5% + (5%)(1.20) = 10.50%.
Expected return (Z) = 4.5% + (5%)β = 4.5% + (5%)(0.80) = 8.50%.
4b. Alpha is the difference between the actual return and the expected return based on portfolio risk:
Alpha of manager Y = actual return – expected return = 10.20% – 10.50% = 0.30%
Alpha of manager Z = actual return – expected return = 8.80% – 8.50% = 0.30%
4c. A positive alpha means the portfolio outperformed the market on a riskadjusted basis; it would plot above the SML. A negative alpha means the opposite, that the portfolio underperformed the market on a riskadjusted basis; it would plot below the SML.
In this case, manager Z outperformed the market portfolio on a riskadjusted basis by 30 basis points (0.30%). Manager Y underperformed, returning 30 basis points less (0.30%) than expected based upon the risk of Y’s portfolio.

Merck is overvalued as its estimated return (10%) is less than the return required by the SML (15.8%); it is a potential candidate for selling.

1(a). In general for the APT, E(Rq) = 0 + 1bq1 + 2bq2
For security J:
E(RJ) = 0.05 + 0.02×0.80 + 0.04×1.40
= 0.05 + 0.016 + 0.056
= .1220 or 12.20%
For Security L:
E(RL) = 0.05 +0.02×1.60 + 0.04×2.25
= 0.05 + 0.032 + 0.09
= .172 or 17.20%
1(b). Total return = dividend yield + capital gain yield
For security J, the dividend yield is $0.75/$22.50 = 0.033 or 3.33%
For security J, the expected capital gain is therefore 12.20%– 3.33% = 8.87%
Therefore:
The expected price for security J is $22.50x(1.0887) = $25.50
For security L, the dividend yield is $0.75/$15.00 = 0.05 or 5%
For security L the expected capital gain is therefore 17.20% – 5.00% = 12.20%
Therefore:
The expected price for security L is $15.00x(1.1220) = $16.83
The answer can be found using the holding period return:
For security J: [(P1 – $22.50) + 0.75] / $22.50 = 0.1220; solving for P1 , we obtain $25.50.
For security l: [(P1 – $15) + 0.75] / $15 = 0.1720; solving for P1 , we obtain $16.83.

2(c). The excess returns for all the stocks for both periods seem moderately large. This is partly due to the fact that we are using outofsample numbers to do the estimating. That is, the regressions were estimated using 20052009 data, but the estimates were made using data from much longer periods.
2(d). No, we wouldn’t expect the factor betas to remain constant over time. The sensitivity of a particular company’s return to a specific factor will change as the character of the firm changes. For instance, growth companies don’t remain growth companies forever, but tend to mature. Thus their factor betas would change to reflect the slowdown in growth but increased stability of earnings.

3(c). Assuming that the factor loadings are significant the three factor model should be more useful to the extent that the nonmarket factors pick up movements in returns not captured by the market return. To be practical, however, the differences in the expected returns are small.
3(d). Because the factor loadings on MACRO2 are zero for two of the stocks, it appears that MACRO2 is not a systematic factor, i.e., one that generally affects all stocks. It may represent industry or firmspecific factors.
4(a). E(RD) = 5.0 + 1.21 + 3.42 = 13.1%
E(RE) = 5.0 + 2. + 2.
Solving the second equation for 1 in terms of 2, we get:
1 = (10.4 – 2.62)/2.6 = (4.0 – 1.02)
Substituting that into the first equation:
1.2(4 – 2 )+ 3.42 = 8.1
Solving for 2, we find 2 = 1.5. Using this value we can determine from either equation that 1 is equal to 2.5.
4(b). Because neither stock pays a dividend, the total return is all due to price appreciation. Therefore for stock D:
P0x(1.131) = $55
P0 = $55/1.131

And for stock E:
P0x(1.154) = $36
P0 = $36/1.154
= $31.20
4(c). From part (a), the risk premium for factor 1 was 2.5%. The new risk factor is thus 2.5% + 0.25%, or 2.75%. The new expected returns are:
E(RD) = 5.0 + (1.2×2.75) +(3.4×1.5)
= 5.0 + 3.3 + 5.1
= 13.4%
E(RE) = 5.0 + (2.6×2.75) + (2.6×1.5)

5(b). In order to create a riskless arbitrage investment, an investor would short 1 share of A and one share of C, and buy 2 shares of B. The weights of this portfolio are WA = 0.5, WB = +1.0, and WC = 0.5. The net investment is:
Short 1 share A = +$30
Buy 2 shares B = – $60
Short 1 share C = +$30

Note: the lease sale price is $100,000 at the end of year 3.
The analyst would recommend investing in the lease obligation since, for each dollar invested, the present value of the future cash flows generated by the lease is greater than the present value of the cash flow that will be realized when the stock is sold.

ER for B = 4.5% + 0.8(14.5% – 4.5%)

Stock A is overvalued because it should provide a 16.5% return according to the CAPM whereas the analyst has estimated only a 16.0% return.

Acceptable variations:
Balance sheet averages may be used for assets and equity. The calculations become
ROE= 510/5140 X 5140/3025 X 3025/2150
9.9% X 1.70 X 1.41 = 23.73%
Beginning of period equity may also be used in calculating leverage as shown below:
ROE= 510/5140 X 5140/3100 X 3100/2100
9.9% X 1.66 X 1.48 = 24.32%
(iii) Sustainable Growth = ROE X Retention Ratio (RR)
where RR= 1 – Dividend payout ratio = 1 – .60/1.96 = .694
23.16% X .694 =16.07% (using end of period balances)
or 23.73% X .694 =16.47% (using average assets and equity)
or 24.32% X .694 =16.88% (using beginning equity)
12(b). If the problem were temporary, management could simply accumulate resources in anticipation of future growth. However, assuming this trend continues longerterm as the question stated, there are four alternative courses of action that management can take when actual growth falls below sustainable growth:
1. Acquire, merge with, or invest in another company (buy growth). Investing internally is acceptable if the core concepts of increasing earnings growth and using excess cash flow are discussed.
2. Return cash to shareholders by increasing the dividend or the dividend payout ratio
3. Return cash to shareholders by buying back stock
4. Reduce liabilities (decrease leverage or pay off debt)

3(a). Portfolio turnover is the dollar value of securities sold in a year divided by the average value of the assets:
Fund W: 37.2/289.4 = .1285 or 12.85%
Fund X: 569.3/653.7 = 0.8709 or 87.09%
Fund Y: 1,453.8/1,298.4 = 1.1197 or 111.97%
Fund Z: 437.1/5,567.3 = 0.0785 or 7.85%
(b) Passively managed funds will have low portfolio turnover ratios and should have low expenses ratios. On this basis, Funds W and Z are the most likely passively managed portfolios; X and Y are most likely to be actively managed.
(c) The tax cost ratio is compute as [1 – (1 + TAR)/(1+PTR)] x 100 where TAR represents taxadjusted return and PTR is the pretax return. Our calculations are as follows:
Fund W: [1 – (1 + 0.0943)/(1+0.0998)] x 100 = 0.50%
Fund X: [1 – (1 + 0.0887)/(1+0.1065)] x 100 = 1.61%
Fund Y: [1 – (1 + 0.0934)/(1+0.1012)] x 100 = 0.71%
Fund Z: [1 – (1 + 0.0954)/(1+0.0983)] x 100 = 0.26%
The tax cost ratio represents the percentage of an investor’s assets that are lost to taxes on a yearly basis due to the trading strategy employed by the fund manager. Funds Z and W are the most taxefficient (least assets lost to taxes) and Funds X and Y were the least taxefficient.

1. 11 – (25/8) = 7.88 11 – (25/27) = 10.07
6(b). The optimal portfolio is the one with the highest expected utility. Thus, portfolio 3 represents the optimal strategic allocation for Ms. A, while Portfolio 4 is the optimal allocation for Mr. B. Since Mr. B has a higher risk tolerance, he is able to pursue more volatile portfolios with higher expected returns.
6(c). For Ms. A: Portfolio 1 = Portfolio 2
8 – (5/RT) = 9 – (10/RT)
RT = 5
In other words, a risk tolerance factor of 5 would leave Ms. A indifferent between having Portfolio 1 or Portfolio 2 as her strategic allocation.
8 a) The table below shows that Manager A’s average return is less than the index while Manager B’s average exceeded that of the index. But performing several ttests show that neither manager’s performance differed significantly from that of the index.
b) The table below shows the difference between Manager A’s performance and the index, as well as the difference between Manager B’s performance and the index. Manager A did the better job of limiting the client’s exposure to unsystematic risk as the difference between A’s returns and those of the index has a smaller standard deviation than that of the difference between B’s returns and those of the index.

3(a). Using the above data, the arithmetic average return per year is 3.65%. On an annual compounded (geometric average) basis, the average annual return is 3.42%.
This latter answer is the same as if the annual return is computed using only the end points, shares were worth $11.44 at the end of year 4 and were purchased for $10, giving a compounded return of ($11.44 / $10).25 1 = 3.42%
3(b). (12.30 / 10.00) (1/4) – 1 = 5.31%
3(c). Ignoring commission, shares were purchased $10.69 and sold at 10.08, a return of 5.7%
3(d). Change is NAV is $9.85 – $11.25 = $1.40; the percentage change is $1.40 / 11.25
= 12.44%

4(c). Costs of management do not increase at the same rate as the managed assets because substantial economies of scale exist in managing assets.
6(a). Beginning value = $27.15 x 257.876 = $7,001.33
($7,823.96 – $7,001.33) + 288.82
Return = = 15.87%
$7,001.33
which can be computed on a pershare basis:
[($30.34 – 27.15) + 1.12] / $27.15 = 0.1587 or 15.87%
6(b). Only the dividend and capital gain distribution is taxable; the shares are not yet sold so the change in NAV does not represent a taxable (realized) gain or loss:
[($30.34 – 27.15) + (1.12) (1 – 0.30)] / $27.15
= 3.97 / $27.15 = 0.1464 or 14.64%
6(c). The investor received a distribution of $1.12 per share which, at the yearend NAV, purchases $1.12/$30.34 = 0.036915 shares. Since the investor owned 257.876 shares, he can purchase 9.519 shares (if there were no tax). If the distribution were taxalb,e the aftertax distribution of $1.12 (1.30) = $0.784 could purchase 0.0258405 shares—for a total of 6.664 shares.
