The average return for large-cap domestic stock funds over three years was 14.4%. Assume the three-year returns were normally distributed across funds with a standard deviation of 4.4%.
(a) What is the probability an individual large-cap domestic stock fund had a three-year return of at least 17%?
(b) What is the probability an individual large-cap domestic stock fund had a three-year return of 10% or less?
(c) How big does the return have to be to put a domestic stock fund in the top 25% for the three-year period?
a)
Here, μ = 14.4, σ = 4.4 and x = 17. We need to compute P(X >=
17). The corresponding z-value is calculated using Central Limit
Theorem
z = (x - μ)/σ
z = (17 - 14.4)/4.4 = 0.59
Therefore,
P(X >= 17) = P(z <= (17 - 14.4)/4.4)
= P(z >= 0.59)
= 1 - 0.7224 = 0.2776
b)
P(X <= 10) = P(z <= (10 - 14.4)/4.4)
= P(z <= -1)
= 0.1587
c)
z-value = 0.67
x = 14.4 + 0.67*4.4
x = 17.348
Ans: 17.35 %

A large cap equity portfolio has a mean return of 11 % and a standard deviation of returns of 17 %. Assuming returns are normally distributed, what is the probability that next year's return will be less than or equal to -5 %? Enter answer as percentage, to two decimal places.
Assume the portfolio returns for a large population of large cap equity funds has a standard deviation of 6.9 %, and returns are independent across funds. If you are collecting a random sample of fund returns and want the standard deviation of sample mean distribution to be at most 1.5 %, what is the size of the sample you must collect? The answer should be 22.
Suppose that a group of mutual funds had an average return of 2% last year with a standard deviation of 3.6%. Assume these funds are normally distributed. What is the probability that a randomly selected fund had a positive return last year?
In a random sample of 32 large cap mutual funds, the average YTD return is 3.05% with a standard deviation of 9.77%. Conduct by hand an appropriate hypothesis test at the 5% level to test whether the average YTD return for a large cap mutual fund is positive. (Again, that means to write the hypotheses, compute the test statistic, and estimate the p-value.) Give your test conclusion in terms of the question being asked. Confirm your test statistic and result...
A pension fund manager is considering three mutual funds. The first is a stock fund, the second is a long-term government and corporate bond fund, and the third is a T-bill money market fund that yields a sure rate of 4.4%. The probability distributions of the risky funds are: Standard Deviation Expected Return 14% - 5% Stock fund (S) Bond fund (B) 34% 28% The correlation between the fund returns is 0.0214. What is the expected return and standard deviation...
