### How do you measure the risk of a single asset?

The total risk of a single asset is measured by the standard
deviation of return on asset. Standard deviation is the square root
of variance. To measure variance, you must have some distribution/
possibility of asset returns. However, the relevant risk of a
single asset is the systematic risk, not the total risk. Systematic
risk is the risk that cannot be diversified away in a portfolio.
Systematic risk of an asset is measured by the Beta. Beta can be
found using Regression...

### The CAPM implies that investors require a higher return to hold highly volatile securities?

The CAPM relates the expected return on a security to that of
the overall market portfolio.
A highly volatile security will have a high covariance with the
market portfolio. Since beta equals the covariance of the security
with the market portfolio divided by the variance of the market
portfolio, the result is a high value of beta.
When this high value of beta is plugged into the CAPM formula,
all else not changed, the required return on the security (ra) is

### What is the risk-free rate if the expected return is 20.4 and beta is 1.6 and expected market return is 15?

expected market return = risk free + beta*(market return - risk
free) So by putting in values: 20.4 = rf+ 1.6(15-rf) expected
market return = risk free + beta*(market return - risk free) So by
putting in values: 20.4 = rf+ 1.6(15-rf) where rf = risk free 20.4

### 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 Return = (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%

The CAPM is a model for pricing an individual security (asset)

the security market line (SML) and its relation to expected return
and systematic risk (beta) to show how the market must price
individual securities in relation to their security risk class. The
SML enables us to calculate the reward-to-risk ratio for any

### 2 Scenarios If market return is 5 percent stock's expected return is -2 percent If market return is 25 percent expected return is 38 percent What is its beta?

The beta is the relationship of a stock's expected return to the
broad market's return. A "high beta" stock will have a beta over
1.00, and thus move up more than the market when the market is
advancing, and decline more than the market when the market is
declining. A "low beta" stock will decline less than the market, or
advance less than the market, depending.
The problem with beta is that it assumes a linear relationship,

### Is it possible that a risky asset have negative beta?

Yes, it is possible that a risky asset may have a negative
beta.
Given that beta measures "relative risk" to a particular market,
index, etc., a negative beta suggests that the the particular asset
class performs well when the given market (the market/index to
which the beta was computed) performs poorly (negative
coorelation).
Using the phrase "risky asset" only suggests that the asset's
ability to return value to the investor is volatile.
For example, a new set of ETFs released in November 2008 track

William Sharpe, John Lintner and Jan Mossin to examine what would
be the relationship between risk and return in the capital market
if investors behaved in conformity with the prescription of

### How does capital market line differ from security market line?

From Investopedia.com:
The capital market line (CML) is a line used in the capital
asset pricing model to illustrate the rates of return for efficient
portfolios depending on the risk-free rate of return and the level
of risk (standard deviation) for a particular portfolio.
The CML is derived by drawing a tangent line from the intercept
point on the efficient frontier to the point where the expected
return equals the risk-free rate of return.
The CML is considered to be superior to the...
