CHANGE IN CORRELATION COEFFICIENT DOES NOT AFFECT RETURNS, SO EXPECTED RANGE OF RETURNS REMAIN SAME IN ALL 3 CASES.
THE RISK = STANDARD DEVIATION WILL BE LOWEST WHEN THE CORRELATION IS NEGATIVE, AS IT LEADS TO FAVOURABLE DIVERSIFICATION
I SOLVED THIS SUM EARLIER, IT WAS MENTIONED TO ROUND TO 1 DECIMAL SO I HAVE ROUNDED TO STANDARD DEVIATION = RISK TO 1 DECIMAL.
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE ME CHANGE, LET ME KNOW TILL WHAT DECIMALS, I SHOULD ROUND.

Assume you wish to evaluate the risk and return behaviors associated with various combinations of assets V and W under three assumed degrees of correlation: perfect positive, uncorrelated, and perfect negative. The following average return and risk values were calculated for these assets: Asset Average Return, r Risk (Standard Deviation), s V 7.9% 4.6% W 12.7% 9.7% a. If the returns of assets V and W are perfectly positively correlated (correlation coefficient = + 1), describe the range of...

P8-13 (similar to) Question Help Portfolio return and standard deviation Personal Finance Problem Jamie Wong is thinking of building an investment portfolio containing two stocks, L and M. Stock Lwill represent 75% of the dollar value of the portfolio, and stock M will account for the other 25%. The historical returns over the next 6 years, 2013 - 2018, for each of these stocks are shown in the following table: a. Calculate the actual portfolio return, fp, for each of...
Assume you wish to evaluate the risk and return behaviors associated with various combinations of two stocks, Alpha Software and Beta Electronics, under three possible degrees of correlation: perfect positive, uncorrelated, and perfect negative. The average return and standard deviation for each stock appears here: Asset Average Return,overbar r Risk (Standard Deviation), s Alpha 5.1% 30.3% Beta 11.2% 50.5% a. If the returns of assets Alpha and Beta are perfectly positively correlated (correlation coefficient equals plus 1),...
6. Portfolio expected return and risk A collection of financial assets and securities is referred to as a portfolio. Most individuals and institutions invest in a portfolio, making portfolio risk analysis an integral part of the field of finance. Just like stand-alone assets and securities, portfolios are also exposed to risk. Portfolio risk refers to the possibility that an investment portfolio will not generate the investor's expected rate of return. Analyzing portfolio risk and return involves the understanding of expected...
2. 3: Risk and Rates of Return: Risk in Portfolio Context Risk and Rates of Return: Risk in Portfolio Context The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) explains how risk should be considered when stocks and other assets are held . The CAPM states that any stock's required rate of return is the risk-free rate of return plus a risk premium that reflects only the risk remaining diversification. Most individuals hold stocks in portfolios. The risk of a stock held in...

Ch 02: Assignment - Risk and Return: Part 1 Term Answer Risk A Expected rate of return B Description The rate of return expected to be realized from an investment, calculated as the mean of the probability distribution of its possible returns. The term applied to the risk of an asset that is measured by the standard deviation of the asset's expected returns. The possibility that an actual outcome will be better or worse than its expected outcome The general...
