## Risk and Rates of

Return
 Stand-alone risk
 Portfolio risk
 Risk & return: CAPM / SML

5-1
Investment returns

## The rate of return on an investment can be

calculated as follows:
________________________
Return =
Amount invested

## For example, if \$1,000 is invested and \$1,100

is returned after one year, the rate of return
for this investment is:
5-2
(\$1,100 - \$1,000) / \$1,000 = 10%.
Returns

##  Expected Return - the return that an

investor expects to earn on an asset,
given its price, growth potential, etc.
k
 Required Return - the return that an
investor requires on an asset given
its risk. k
 Realized Return – the return that was
_
actually earned during some past
period k
 Average Return - _ the average 5-3

RISK
 How to measure risk
(variance, standard
deviation, beta)
 How to reduce risk

(diversification)

5-11
What is investment risk?
 Risk is an uncertain outcome or chance
 Concerned with the riskiness of cash
flows from financial assets.
 Two types of investment risk
 Stand-alone risk
 Portfolio risk
 Investment risk is related to the
probability of earning a low or negative
actual return.
 The greater the chance of lower than
expected or negative returns, the riskier
the investment. 5-12
 Stand Alone Risk: Single Asset
 relevant
risk measure is the total risk
of expected cash flows measured by
standard deviation .
 Portfolio Context: A group of assets.
Total risk consists of:
 DiversifiableRisk (company-specific,
unsystematic)
 Market Risk (non-diversifiable,
systematic)
5-13

How do we Measure Risk?
 A more scientific approach is to
examine the stock’s STANDARD
DEVIATION of returns.
 Standard deviation is a
measure of the dispersion of
possible outcomes.
 The greater the standard
deviation, the greater the
uncertainty, and therefore , the

Portfolio construction:
Risk and return

## Assume a two-stock portfolio is created

with \$50,000 invested in both HT and
Collections.
 Expected return of a portfolio is a
weighted average of each of the
component assets of the portfolio.

Portfolios
 Combining several
securities in a portfolio can
actually reduce overall risk.
 How does this work?

5-33
Diversification
 Investing in more than
one security to reduce
risk.
 If two stocks are perfectly
positively correlated,
diversification has no
effect on risk.
 If two stocks are perfectly
negatively correlated, the 5-34

Investor Attitude
Towards Risk
 Investors are assumed to be risk
averse.
 Risk aversion – assumes investors
dislike risk and require higher rates
riskier securities.
 Risk premium – the difference
between the return on a risky asset
and a riskless asset, which serves as
compensation for investors to hold 5-39

 Risk aversion – assumes investors
dislike risk and require higher

 Risk premium – the difference
between the return on a risky
asset and less risky asset, which
serves as compensation for
investors to hold riskier securities.

5-40
Capital Asset Pricing Model
(CAPM)

##  Model based upon concept that a

stock’s required rate of return is equal
to the risk-free rate of return plus a risk
premium that reflects the riskiness of
the stock after diversification.
 Primary conclusion: The relevant
riskiness of a stock is its contribution to
the riskiness of a well-diversified
portfolio.
5-41
Well-diversified Portfolio
 Large Portfolio (10-15 assets)
eliminates diversifiable risk for the
most part.
 Interested in Market Risk which is
the risk that cannot be diversified
away.
 The relevant risk measure is Beta
which measures the riskiness of an
individual asset in relation to the 5-42 42
Failure to diversify
 If an investor chooses to hold a one-stock
portfolio (exposed to more risk than a
diversified investor), would the investor
be compensated for the risk they bear?
 NO!
 Stand-alone risk is not important to a
well-diversified investor.
 Rational, risk-averse investors are
concerned with σp, which is based upon
market risk.
 There can be only one price (the market
return) for a given security.
 No compensation should be earned for5-43
Beta

Measures a stock’s market risk, and shows
a stock’s volatility relative to the market.
or
It’s a measure of the
“sensitivity” of an individual
stock’s returns to changes in the
market.
 Indicates how risky a stock is if the stock is
held in a well-diversified portfolio.
5-44
The market’s beta is 1

##  A firm that has a beta = 1 has

average market risk. The
stock is no more or less
volatile than the market.
 A firm with a beta > 1 is more
volatile than the market (ex:
computer firms).
 A firm with a beta < 1 is less
5-45
What is the market risk
 Additional return over the risk-free rate
needed to compensate investors for
assuming an average amount of risk.
 Its size depends on the perceived risk of
the stock market and investors’ degree
of risk aversion.
 Varies from year to year, but most
estimates suggest that it ranges
between 4% and 8% per year.

Can the beta of a security
be negative?
 Yes, if the correlation between Stock i
and the market is negative (i.e., ρi,m <
0).
 If the correlation is negative, the
regression line would slope downward,
and the beta would be negative.
 However, a negative beta is highly
unlikely.

Verifying the CAPM
empirically
 The CAPM has not been verified
completely.
 Statistical tests have problems that
make verification almost impossible.
 Some argue that there are additional
risk factors, other than the market
considered.

5-63
More thoughts on the
CAPM
 Investors seem to be concerned with both
market risk and total risk. Therefore, the
SML may not produce a correct estimate
of ki.
ki = kRF + (kM – kRF) βi + ???
 CAPM/SML concepts are based upon
expectations, but betas are calculated
using historical data. A company’s
historical data may not reflect investors’
5-64
Example:
 Suppose the Treasury
bond rate is 6%, the
average return on the S&P
500 index is 12%, and Walt
Disney has a beta of 1.2.
 According to the CAPM,
what should be the
required rate of return on
Disney stock?
5-65
kj = krf + β (km - krf)

## kj = .06 + 1.2 (.12 - .06)

kj = .132 = 13.2%

## According to the CAPM,

Disney stock should be
priced to give a 13.2%
return. 5-66
An example:
Equally-weighted two-stock
portfolio
 Create a portfolio with 50% invested
in HT and 50% invested in
Collections.
 The beta of a portfolio is the
weighted average of each of the
stock’s betas.

## βP = wHT βHT + wColl βColl

βP = 0.5 (1.30) + 0.5 (-0.87)
βP = 0.215 5-67
Calculating portfolio required
returns

##  The required return of a portfolio is the

weighted average of each of the stock’s
required returns.
kP = wHT kHT + wColl kColl
kP = 0.5 (17.1%) + 0.5 (1.9%)
kP = 9.5%

##  Or, using the portfolio’s beta, CAPM can be

used to solve for expected return.
kP = kRF + (kM – kRF) βP
kP = 8.0% + (15.0% – 8.0%) (0.215) 5-68
