Part One: The CAPM

Olter, Inc. is starting its risk management program for the company and has asked for your help in determining critical risk measurements for the firm. The company has identified several factors in the market that they believe are critical for your tasks:

• The risk-free rate is 6%

• The required return on the average stock is 13%

• Olter’s average return is 13%

Required:

1. What is Olter’s beta coefficient?

2. How does the beta coefficient influence the firm’s stock value?

3. What is the required rate of return for Olter?

4. In terms of risk, how does Olter compare to the average firm in the market?

5. If Olter’s beta increased to 1.6, what would you expect to happen to the required rate of return and what does this mean for the firm?

Deliverable:

By Tuesday, November 5, 2013, submit the completed assignment to the W5: Assignment 2 Dropbox. Use a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that illustrates your calculations. You may use the formulas embedded in Microsoft Excel and/or a financial calculator for these calculations.

Part Two: Final Project 4: Portfolio Return and Risk; Report and Presentation

Part A: Portfolio Return and Risk

Required:

Select four stocks from finance.yahoo.com, google.finance.com, or moneycentral.msn.com. One should be a clothing manufacturer, one should be a retailer, one should be an automobile manufacturer, and one should be a restaurant or food producer.

1. Obtain the closing price, the change in price from the previous day, and the beta.

2. Calculate the return on holding the stock for a day (this should be the change in price over the closing price without the change).

3. Calculate a portfolio return with weights of 0.25 for each stock.

4. Calculate a weighted beta with weights of 0.25 for each stock.

5. Summarize the implications of the portfolio return and risk with respect to what you learned about beta and the CAPM.

Deliverable:

By Tuesday, November 5, 2013, submit the completed assignment to the W5: Assignment 2 Dropbox. Use a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that illustrates your calculations. You may use the formulas embedded in Microsoft Excel and/or a financial calculator for these calculations.

Part Three: Final Project 2: Portfolio Analysis

Part A: Research Online Trading Sites and DRIPs

For this part of the assignment, you will evaluate the choices in purchasing stock via online brokerage accounts (where you can buy and sell stock via the Internet) and the use of dividend reinvestment plans (known as DIPs and DRIPs) or mutual funds or index funds.

For online brokers, you will be looking for the requirements to open the accounts: costs, minimum balances, and other features. Because most DIPs or DRIPs are available from publicly traded companies, you can search their Web sites or a search engine on these plans and their requirements.

Perhaps the most famous and useful Web site for these programs ishttp://www.directinvesting.com/. You are to compare and contrast online brokerage to DIPs and DRIPs.

Required:

Research online trading sites and DRIPS as outlined below, and summarize your findings. Make sure to include a summary table of the relevant information.

1. Search three online trading sites, and determine the requirements for trading, including the price per trade. Compare and contrast the online trading companies. (2–3 pages)

2. Search the Web for three companies (look for investor information) that offer DIPs or DRIPs. (2–3 pages)

3. Compare and contrast the requirements, including minimum investments, nature of the return, costs, and other features. (1–2 pages)
