The probability distribution for complete certainty is a vertical line. The probability distribution for total uncertainty is the X axis from -? to ?. The risk premium on a high beta stock would increase more.
RPj = Risk Premium for Stock j = (rM – rRF)bj. If risk aversion increases, the slope of the SML will increase, and so will the market risk premium (rM – rRF). The product (rM – rRF)bj is the risk premium of the jth stock. If bj is low (say, 0.5), then the product will be small; RPj will increase by only half the increase in RPM. However, if bj is large (say, 2.0), then its risk premium will rise by twice the increase in RPM.
According to the Security Market Line (SML) equation, an increase in beta will increase a company’s expected return by an amount equal to the market risk premium times the change in beta. For example, assume that the risk-free rate is 6 percent, and the market risk premium is 5 percent. If the company’s beta doubles from 0.8 to 1.6 its expected return increases from 10 percent to 14 percent. Therefore, in general, a company’s expected return will not double when its beta doubles.
Berg Inc. has just paid a dividend of $2.00. Its stock is now selling for $48 per share. The firm is half as risky as the market. The expected return on the market is 14 percent, and the yield on U.S. Treasury bonds is 11 percent. If the market is in equilibrium, what rate of growth is expected?
Carlson Products, a constant growth company, has a current market (and equilibrium) stock price of $20.00. Carlson’s next dividend, , is forecasted to be $2.00, and Carlson is growing at an annual rate of 6 percent. Carlson has a beta coefficient of 1.2, and the required rate of return on the market is 15 percent. As Carlson’s financial manager, you have access to insider information concerning a switch in product lines which would not change the growth rate, but would cut Carlson’s beta coefficient in half. If you buy the stock at the current market price, what is your expected percentage capital gain?
Rose Industries is currently trading for $47 per share. The stock pays no dividends. A one-year European call option on Luther with a strike price of $45 is currently trading for $7.45. If the risk-free interest rate is 6% per year, then calculate the price of a one-year European put option on Luther with a strike price of $45.
Suppose you believe that Basso Inc.’s stock price is going to increase from its current level of $22.50 sometime during the next 5 months. For $3.10 you can buy a 5-month call option giving you the right to buy 1 share at a price of $25
