# Risk and Return

## Chapter 8 Which is better?

(1) 4% return with no risk, or
Risk and Rates of (2) 15% return with risk.

## Return Cannot say - need to know how much risk

comes with the 15% return.

## What do we know so far? But this does not quantify risk

We know why returns vary between different securities!
We want to quantify risk.
rnom = r* + IP + DRP + LP + MRP

## rnom = nominal rate Todays concepts

r* = real rate (pure compensation) (1) quantify risk
IRP = inflation-risk premium (change in cost of goods)
DRP = default-risk premium (ability to pay P & I) (2) tells us how much return we need for a
LP = liquidity premium (ability to convert to cash) given level of risk
MP = maturity risk premium ()P/)i)

where r* + IP = rRF

Risk and Return - individual assets Risk and Return - individual assets
Risk = P( Actual returns < Expected returns )
Buy a 20 year STN bond to hold for 2 years
Example: A 2 year Treasury bond; hold until maturity; where the expected return = 15% [ E(r) = 15%]
pays 4% / year

## Expected return = 4% [ E(r) = 4%] Probability Actual Return

If hold until maturity 50% 0%

25% 45%

## Calculating Expected Return How to measure risk and return

E(r) = expected rate of return
E(r) = ( probi x ri )
= (50%x0%)+(25%x15%)+(25%X45%) = standard deviation which
= (0%) + (3.75%) + (11.25%) measures the dispersion around the
= 15.00% mean (measure of risk)

## = { [ri E(r)]2 x probi }1/2

Risk and Return Problem
Stock A has the following probability distribution of
expected returns:

## Instrument E(r) Probability Rate of Return

0.1 -15%
4% 0% 0.2 0%
T-Bond 0.4 5%
0.2 10%
MGM Bond 15% 18.37% 0.1 25%

deviation?

## Expected Rate of Return Standard Deviation

E(r) = ( probi x ri ) = { [ri E(r)]2 x probi }1/2
= {[(-.15-.05)2x.1]+[(.00-.05)2x.2]
= (.1 x -15%) + (.2 x 0%) + (.4 x 5%) +[(.05-.05)2x.4]+[(.10-.05)2x.2]
+ (.2 x 10%) + (.1 x 25%) +[(.25-.05)2x.4]}1/2
= {[.004]+[.0005]+[.0005]+[.004]}1/2
= (-1.5%) + (0%) + (2%) + (2%) + (2.5%)
= {.009}1/2
E(r) = 5%
= 9.49%

## Calculations Efficient Portfolios

Portfolio Standard Deviation The portfolio that provides the highest return for a given
level of risk - or lowest risk for a particular expected
say = 1, perfect positive correlation return.

## p = [(.4)2(4.24)2+(.6)2(10.6)2+(.4)(.6)(1)(4.24)(10.6)]1/2 Therefore combine assets in a portfolio to get highest

= [64.9]1/2 = 8% expected return for given risk (6p)

= 0, no correlation, p = 6.6% For each asset some risk can be eliminated when
combined with other assets in a portfolio (unless p=+1)
= -1, perfect negative correlation, p =4.7%
Combine assets in such a manner to get Efficient Portfolio.
Remember: less correlation equates to lower risk!!

Look at an individual stock Beta - CAPM
Total Risk = i Beta = Measure of Market Risk - the risk that is relevant to
investors
Some risk can be eliminated by including the stock in a
portfolio -call this that can be eliminated diversifiable or
company-specific risk. BETA () measures of a particular stock's variation in
return relative to the market.
Some risk can not be eliminated - call this
nondiversifiable or market risk. = cov(ri,rm)/2m = imim / 2m = im x (i / m )

Risk that is important to investors is nondiversifiable or = 1.0 moves exactly with market
market risk. > 1.0 moves more than market (> risk)
< 1.0 moves less than market (< risk)
risk aversion (def) - dislike risk = 0.0 no risk (Risk-Free)

## Capital Asset Pricing Model

CAPM Example
(CAPM)
Treasury Bill = rRF = 5%
Market Rate = rm = 12%

## rT-Bill = 5% + ( 0.0 )( 12% - 5% ) = 5%

Where ( rm - rRF ) = market risk premium
For IBM =0.7

## rIBM = 5% + ( 0.7 )( 12% - 5% ) = 9.9%

## Diversified Portfolio Efficient Markets Hypothesis

Efficient Markets Hypothesis (def) - securities are fairly
priced - market price reflects all publicly available
How many stocks (assets) do we need to hold to information.
approximate a well-diversified portfolio?
What does this mean for investors?

Hold everything - market portfolio - eliminates all P0 = fair price according to public information
diversifiable risk - Impossible!
ri = depends on risk relative to market risk ()

Hold 8-10 assets - closely approximates market Says, buy securities and form your portfolio according to
risk preference
(eliminates most diversifiable risk)

Recap: Risk and Return Recap: Risk and Return
Goal: to quantify risk and return so we can compare and choose Assumes that everyone (investors) are bright enough to hold a well-
investment opportunities. diversified efficient portfolio.

We saw how to calculate expected return Only risk that matters is nondiversifiable risk (market risk) - measured
by
E(r) = ( pi x ri )
Use CAPM and to calculate expected return for relevant risk.
We saw how to calculate risk Risk and Return are quantified!!!!

= { (ri E(ri)]2 pi }1/2 Therefore investors want to own efficient portfolios. Which ones? The
one that correspond to the level of risk they want to assume.
But if we form a portfolio we can eliminate some risk - if we form
