This answer was rated:

stock r has a beta of 1.5 stock s has a beta of .75 the expected rate of return on an average stock is 13%, and the risk-free rate of return is 7%. By how much does the required return on the riskier stock exceed the required return on the less risky stock?
HiCustomer

Welcome to Justanwer


The Required return on stock R = .07 + 1.5(.13-.07) = .16 = 16%


The Required return on stock S = .07 + .75(.13-.07) = .16 = .115 = 11.5%


So required return on the riskier stock exceed the required return on the less risky stock by 4.5% (16%-11.5%).
