# If the risk free rate is 10 percent and the market risk premium is 5 percent market determined beta is 1.8 what is the required rate of return?

RoR = Rf + beta x Rp where, RoR = Required Rate of return Rf = Risk free Rate Rp = Risk Premium so Ror - 19%

# If beta coefficient is 1.4 and the risk free rate is 4.25 and the market risk premium is 5.50 what is the required rate of return?

Require Rate of Return is formulated as: Riskfree Rate + Beta(Risk Premium) Required Rate of Return = 4.25 + 1.4 (5.50) = 11.95%

# If stock beta is 1.2 the risk free rate is 4 and market rate of return is 14 what is the market risk premium?

I'm going to assume that you mean the risk free rate is 4%, or 0.04, and the market rate of return is 14%, or .14. If that is the case, then we solve: Market Rate of R…eturn = (Risk Free Rate) + Beta * (Market Risk Premium) 0.14 = 0.04 + 1.2 * MRP 0.1 = 1.2 * MRP 0.1 / 1.2 = MRP 0.08333... = MRP The Market Risk Premium would be approximately 8.33% This is an example of the Capital Asset Pricing Model, or CAPM.

# Risk free rate is 5 and the market risk premium is 6 What is the expected return for the overall stock market What is the required rate of return on a stock that has a beta of 1.2?

Expected return= risk free rate + Risk premium = 11 rate of return on stock= Riskfree rate + beta x( expected market return- risk free rate)

# If the required rate of return is 11 the risk free rate is 7 and the market risk premium is 4 what is the beta coefficient?

the beta is 1 the beta is 1

# If beta coefficient is 1.4 and the risk free rate is 4.25and the market risk premium is 5.50 what is the required rate of return?

4.25 + 1.4(5.5) = 11.95 = required rate of return the correct answer is: 4.25 + 1.4 (5.50-4.25) = 21.75

It depends on how you calculate future expected returns and all firms calculate it in different ways.
