If Stock Y is less highly correlated with the market than X, then it might have a lower beta than Stock X, and hence be less risky in a portfolio sense.

New portfolio beta = 0.95(1.13) + 0.05(1.75) = 1.16.

Alternative Solutions:

1.Old portfolio beta = 1.12 = (0.05)b1 + (0.05)b2 + ... + (0.05)b20

1.12 = [pic](0.05)
[pic]= 1.12/0.05 = 22.4.

New portfolio beta = (22.4 - 1.0 + 1.75)(0.05) = 1.1575 ( 1.16.

2.[pic] excluding the stock with the beta equal to 1.0 is 22.4 - 1.0 = 21.4, so the beta of the portfolio excluding this stock is b = 21.4/19 = 1.1263. The beta of the new portfolio is:

1.1263(0.95) + 1.75(0.05) = 1.1575 ( 1.16.

6-10Portfolio beta = [pic](1.50) + [pic](-0.50)

= (0.1)(1.5) + (0.15)(-0.50) + (0.25)(1.25) + (0.5)(0.75) = 0.15 - 0.075 + 0.3125 + 0.375 = 0.7625.

kp= kRF + (kM - kRF)(bp) = 6% + (14% - 6%)(0.7625) = 12.1%.

Alternative solution: First compute the return for each stock using the CAPM equation [kRF + (kM - kRF)b], and then compute the weighted average of these returns.

kRF = 6% and kM - kRF = 8%.
