1. DKG stock has the following probability distribution of expected prices one year from

now:

State

1

2

3

Probability

.25

.40

.35

Price

\$50

\$60

\$70

(1) If you buy DKG stock today for \$55 and it will pay a dividend during the year of

\$4 per share, what is your expected holding period return on DKG?

(2) If instead, you require a risk premium of 5% and Rf is 4%. What is the price you

are willing to pay today for DKG? Assuming the stock will pay a dividend of \$4

per share.

constructed with 2 risky securities, X and Y. The weights of X and Y in P are 0.60 and

0.40, respectively. X has an expected rate of return of 0.14 and variance of 0.01, and Y

has an expected rate of return of 0.10 and a variance of 0.0081. The coefficient of

correlation, rho, between X and Y is 0.45.

percentage of your money must you invest in the T-bill and P, respectively?

b. If you desire to form a portfolio with a standard deviation of 5.59%, what

percentages of your money must you invest in the T-bill, X, and Y respectively?

c. What would be the dollar values of your positions in X and Y, respectively, if you

decide to hold 40% of your money in the risky portfolio and 60% in T-bills?

d. What would be the dollar value of your positions in X, Y, and the T-bills,
