A stock has a beta of 0.75 and an expected return of 13%. The risk-free rate is 4%. Calculate the market

risk premium and the expected return on the market portfolio.

Answer:

According to CAPM: 0.13 = 0.04 + 0.75[E(RM) − RF].

Therefore, the market risk premium is equal to: [E(RM) − RF] = 0.12 = 12%.

The expected return on the market is calculated as: [E(RM) − 0.04] = 0.12, or E(RM) = 0.16 = 16%.

If anyone could help me with the algebra I would appreciate it. not urgent for David or Nicole to answer
