earnings, the market cannot explain future earnings. It is therefore a bias predictor and thus, the risk premium is not going to be explained by its market beta.
Furthermore, the author argues that earnings announcements risks should be priced as changes in aggregate growth represent a systematic risk.

SHARPE’S PORTFOLIO THEORY
This model was developed by William Sharpe. According to Sharp’s model, the theory estimates the expected return and variance of indices which may be one or more and are related to economic activity. This theory has come to be known as Market Model.

Uses variance as a measure of risk Specifies that only that portion of variance that is not diversifiable is rewarded. Measures the non-diversifiable risk with beta, which is standardized around one. Translates beta into expected return Expected Return = Riskfree rate + Beta * Risk Premium...

(1959). According to his theory, investors choose “mean-variance-efficient” portfolio. This basically means that they choose portfolios that minimize the variance of portfolio return, given expected return, and maximize expected return, given variance. In addition to these assumptions, the CAPM makes several...
RP2 = 5%
Thus, the expected return-beta relationship is:
E(rP) = 6% + (βP1 × 10%) + (βP2 × 5%)
5. The expected return for Portfolio F equals the risk-free rate since its beta equals 0.
For Portfolio A, the ratio of risk premium to beta is: (12 − 6)/1.2 = 5
For Portfolio E...
