9 Detailed solution for selected questions: Q5. Long 2 shares in A and short 1 share of B will eliminate factor risk, yet yield an expected return of 2*13% - 15% = 11% yet according to APT it should only get riskfree rate of 10% Q6. Market has a beta of 1. So market risk premium = E(rm) rf = 15% - 5% = 10%. So security X should receive an expected return of 5% * 10% = 16.5% at 13% expected return, the price is too high Q8. Portfolio beta shuld be 0.6 * * 0.9 = 1.26 Q9. Market risk premium is 11% - 4% = 7% so X should expect an return of 4% * 7% = 9.6% at 12%, X is underpriced (note: price and return move in the opposite direction). Q10. Market risk premium is 15% - 5% = 10% so X should expect an return of 5% * 10% = 17% Q11. Market risk premium is 15% - 8% = 7% so X should expect an return of 8% * 7% = 16.75% at 16%, X has a negative alpha = 16% % = % Q12. option payoff = = 3; option profit = 3-5 = -2 For one contract, which is 100 call options, profit = -2 * 100 = Page 9

10 Q13. option will be out of money and you lost the whole 5*100 = 500 dollars. Q19. this is the case of straddle buy long call and put with the same strike prices. You profit from dramatic price movement of either direction. You need the price to move at least = 8.75 either up or down to make a profit. Q21. this question is another way to use put-call parity relationship S = C P + PV(X) = / (1+0.08) = Q25. at-the-money call has a strike price of \$100. hedge ratio is (100 0) / (200 50) = 2/3 the certain payoff with 2/3 share of stock and 1 call written is 2/3 * 50 = 2/3 * the call should have a price of 2/3 * S0 (100/3) / (1+5%) = Q26. Hedge ratio will be smaller (75 0) / (200 50) = ½ Q of bond A and 1.1 of bond B can exactly replicate the payoff of bond C. So bond C should have a price of 0.1* *800 = 970 Q28. if bond C is traded at face value of \$1000, then it is too expensive. Buy 0.1 of A and 1.1 of B while short 1 share of bond C will lead to a certain cash flow today of \$30, with no future liability associated with the portfolio strategy later. Q29. correlation = cov(r i, r m ) / [std(r i ) std(r m )] = cov(r i, r m ) / var(r m ) * [std(r m ) / std(r i )] = beta * [std(r m ) / std(r i )] = 1 * (0.2 / 0.5) = 40%; Q30. R2 = correlation 2 = 16% = beta 2 *var(r m ) / var(r i ) = 16% Page 10
