# CHAPTER 8

## Risk and Rates of Return

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

8-1
Risk and Return
Valuing risky assets - a task fundamental to
financial management

## 1. Determine the asset’s expected cash flows

2. Choose discount rate that reflects asset’s risk
3. Calculate present value (PV cash inflows - PV
outflows)
The three-step procedure is called
discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis.
8-2
Financial Return
Total return: the total gain or loss experienced on
an investment over a given period of time

## Income stream from the investment

Components
of the total
return Capital gain or loss due to changes
in asset prices

## Total return can be expressed either in dollar terms

or in percentage terms.
8-3
Dollar Returns
Total dollar return = income + capital gain / loss

## Terrell bought 100

shares of Micro-Orb
stock for \$25 Dollar return = (100 shares) x (\$1 +
A year later: \$5) = \$600
Dividend = \$1/share
Sold for \$30/share

Owen bought 50
shares of Garcia Inc.
stock for \$15 Dollar return = (150 shares) x (\$15)
A year later: = \$500
No dividends paid
Sold for \$25/share 8-4
Percentage Returns
Terrell’s dollar return exceeded Owen’s by \$100. Can we say
that Terrell was better off?

## No, because Terrell and Owen’s initial investments were

different: Terrell spent \$2,500 in initial investment, while
Owen spent \$750.

risky asset relative to the risk-free return available

## Probability distribution for future stock returns is

unknown. We can approximate the unknown
distribution by assuming a normal distribution.8-10

probability of each occurrence.

Variability of Stock Returns
Normal distribution can be described by its mean
and its variance.

## 1. Investors who want higher returns have to take more risk

2. The incremental reward from accepting more risk seems

deviation as a measure of risk
 Standard deviation (σi) measures
total, or stand-alone, risk.
 The larger σi is, the lower the
probability that actual returns will be
closer to expected returns.
 Larger σi is associated with a wider
probability distribution of returns.

8-16
Coefficient of Variation (CV)
A standardized measure of dispersion about
the expected value, that shows the risk per
unit of return.

## σA = σB , but A is riskier because of a larger probability of

losses. In other words, the same amount of risk (as
measured by σ) for smaller returns.

8-18
Diversification
Most individual stock prices show higher volatility
than the price volatility of portfolio of all common
stocks.

## How can the standard deviation for individual stocks be higher

than the standard deviation of the portfolio?

## Diversification: investing in many different assets reduces

the volatility of the portfolio.

## The ups and downs of individual stocks partially

cancel each other out.

Systematic and Unsystematic
Risk
Diversification reduces portfolio volatility, but only
up to a point. Portfolio of all stocks still has a
volatility of 21%.

## Systematic risk: the volatility of the portfolio that

cannot be eliminated through diversification.

## Unsystematic risk: the proportion of risk of individual

assets that can be eliminated through diversification

## What really matters is systematic risk….how a group

of assets move together.
8-23
Systematic and Unsystematic
Risk
Anheuser Busch stock had higher average returns
than Archer-Daniels-Midland stock, with smaller
volatility.
American Airlines had much smaller average returns
than Wal-Mart, with similar volatility.
The tradeoff between standard deviation and average
returns that holds for asset classes does not hold for
individual stocks.
Standard deviation contains both systematic and
unsystematic risk.
Because investors can eliminate unsystematic risk
through diversification, market rewards only
systematic risk. 8-24

Security Market Line

## • An asset that pays a risk-free return Rf, , and

• A market portfolio that contains some of every
risky asset in the market.
Portfolio E(R) Beta
Risk-free asset Rf 0
Market portfolio E(Rm) 1

## Security market line: the line connecting the risk-

free asset and the market portfolio
8-26
Beta
 Measures a stock’s market risk, and
shows a stock’s volatility relative to the
market.
 Indicates how risky a stock is if the
stock is held in a well-diversified
portfolio.

8-27
 If beta = 1.0, the security is just as risky as
the average stock.
 If beta > 1.0, the security is riskier than
average.
 If beta < 1.0, the security is less risky than
average.
 Most stocks have betas in the range of 0.5 to
1.5.

8-28
Security Market Line and CAPM
The two-asset portfolio lies on security market line

## Given two points (risk-free asset and market portfolio

asset) on the security market line, the equation of the
line:
E(Ri) = Rf + ß [E(Rm) – Rf]

## • Return for • Portfolio’s • Reward for

bearing no exposure to bearing
market risk market risk market risk
The equation represents the risk and return
relationship predicted by the Capital Asset Pricing
Model (CAPM) 8-29
The Security Market Line
Plots relationship between expected return and
betas
 In equilibrium, all assets lie on this line.

## • If individual stock or portfolio lies above the

line:
 Expected return is too high.

##  Investors bid up price until expected return

falls.
• If individual stock or portfolio lies below SML:

## expected return rises.
