• Slide 1
• Chapter 13. Risk & Return in Asset Pricing Models Portfolio Theory Managing Risk Asset Pricing Models Portfolio Theory Managing Risk Asset Pricing Models
• Slide 2
• I. Portfolio Theory how does investor decide among group of assets? assume: investors are risk averse additional compensation for risk tradeoff between risk and expected return how does investor decide among group of assets? assume: investors are risk averse additional compensation for risk tradeoff between risk and expected return
• Slide 3
• goalgoal efficient or optimal portfolio for a given risk, maximize exp. return OR for a given exp. return, minimize the risk efficient or optimal portfolio for a given risk, maximize exp. return OR for a given exp. return, minimize the risk
• Slide 4
• toolstools measure risk, return quantify risk/return tradeoff measure risk, return quantify risk/return tradeoff
• Slide 5
• return = R = change in asset value + income initial value Measuring Return R is ex post based on past data, and is known R is typically annualized R is ex post based on past data, and is known R is typically annualized
• Slide 6
• example 1 Tbill, 1 month holding period buy for \$9488, sell for \$9528 1 month R: Tbill, 1 month holding period buy for \$9488, sell for \$9528 1 month R: 9528 - 9488 9488 =.0042 =.42%
• Slide 7
• annualized R: (1.0042) 12 - 1 =.052 = 5.2%
• Slide 8
• example 2 100 shares IBM, 9 months buy for \$62, sell for \$101.50 \$.80 dividends 9 month R: 100 shares IBM, 9 months buy for \$62, sell for \$101.50 \$.80 dividends 9 month R: 101.50 - 62 +.80 62 =.65 =65%
• Slide 9
• annualized R: (1.65) 12/9 - 1 =.95 = 95%
• Slide 10
• Expected Return measuring likely future return based on probability distribution random variable measuring likely future return based on probability distribution random variable E(R) =SUM(R i x Prob(R i ))
• Slide 11
• example 1 RProb(R) 10%.2 5%.4 -5%.4 E(R) =(.2)10% + (.4)5% + (.4)(-5%) = 2%
• Slide 12
• example 2 RProb(R) 1%.3 2%.4 3%.3 E(R) =(.3)1% + (.4)2% + (.3)(3%) = 2%
• Slide 13
• examples 1 & 2 same expected return but not same return structure returns in example 1 are more variable same expected return but not same return structure returns in example 1 are more variable
• Slide 14
• RiskRisk measure likely fluctuation in return how much will R vary from E(R) how likely is actual R to vary from E(R) measured by variance ( standard deviation measure likely fluctuation in return how much will R vary from E(R) how likely is actual R to vary from E(R) measured by variance ( standard deviation
• Slide 15
• = SUM[(R i - E(R)) 2 x Prob(R i )] SQRT(
• Slide 16
• example 1 = (.2)(10%-2%) 2 =.0039 + (.4)(5%-2%) 2 + (.4)(-5%-2%) 2 = 6.24%
• Slide 17
• example 2 = (.3)(1%-2%) 2 =.00006 + (.4)(2%-2%) 2 + (.3)(3%-2%) 2 =.77%
• Slide 18
• same expected return but example 2 has a lower risk preferred by risk averse investors variance works best with symmetric distributions same expected return but example 2 has a lower risk preferred by risk averse investors variance works best with symmetric distributions

• Slide 20
• II. Managing risk Diversification holding a group of assets lower risk w/out lowering E(R) Diversification holding a group of assets lower risk w/out lowering E(R)
• Slide 21
• Why? individual assets do not have same return pattern combining assets reduces overall return variation Why? individual assets do not have same return pattern combining assets reduces overall return variation
• Slide 22
• two types of risk unsystematic risk specific to a firm can be eliminated through diversification examples: -- Safeway and a strike -- Microsoft and antitrust cases unsystematic risk specific to a firm can be eliminated through diversification examples: -- Safeway and a strike -- Microsoft and antitrust cases
• Slide 23
• systematic risk market risk cannot be eliminated through diversification due to factors affecting all assets -- energy prices, interest rates, inflation, business cycles systematic risk market risk cannot be eliminated through diversification due to factors affecting all assets -- energy prices, interest rates, inflation, business cycles
• Slide 24
• exampleexample choose stocks from NYSE listings go from 1 stock to 20 stocks reduce risk by 40-50% choose stocks from NYSE listings go from 1 stock to 20 stocks reduce risk by 40-50%
• Slide 25
• # assets systematic risk unsystematic risk total risk
• Slide 26
• measuring relative risk if some risk is diversifiable, then is not the best measure of risk is an absolute measure of risk need a measure just for the systematic component if some risk is diversifiable, then is not the best measure of risk is an absolute measure of risk need a measure just for the systematic component
• Slide 27
• Beta, variation in asset/portfolio return relative to return of market portfolio mkt. portfolio = mkt. index -- S&P 500 or NYSE index variation in asset/portfolio return relative to return of market portfolio mkt. portfolio = mkt. index -- S&P 500 or NYSE index = % change in asset return % change in market return
• Slide 28
• interpreting if asset is risk free if asset return = market return if asset is riskier than market index asset is less risky than market index if asset is risk free if asset return = market return if asset is riskier than market index asset is less risky than market index
• Slide 29
• Sample betas (monthly returns, 5 years back)
• Slide 30
• measuring estimated by regression data on returns of assets data on returns of market index estimate estimated by regression data on returns of assets data on returns of market index estimate
• Slide 31
• problemsproblems what length for return interval? weekly? monthly? annually? choice of market index? NYSE, S&P 500 survivor bias what length for return interval? weekly? monthly? annually? choice of market index? NYSE, S&P 500 survivor bias
• Slide 32
• # of observations (how far back?) 5 years? 50 years? time period? 1970-1980? 1990-2000? # of observations (how far back?) 5 years? 50 years? time period? 1970-1980? 1990-2000?

• Slide 34
• assumeassume investors choose risky and risk-free asset no transactions costs, taxes same expectations, time horizon risk averse investors investors choose risky and risk-free asset no transactions costs, taxes same expectations, time horizon risk averse investors
• Slide 35
• implicationimplication expected return is a function of beta risk free return market return expected return is a function of beta risk free return market return
• Slide 36
• or is the portfolio risk premium where is the market risk premium
• Slide 37
• so if portfolio exp. return is larger than exp. market return riskier portfolio has larger exp. return portfolio exp. return is larger than exp. market return riskier portfolio has larger exp. return > >
• Slide 38
• so if portfolio exp. return is smaller than exp. market return less risky portfolio has smaller exp. return portfolio exp. return is smaller than exp. market return less risky portfolio has smaller exp. return <
• Testing the CAPM CAPM overpredicts returns return under CAPM > actual return relationship between and return? some studies it is positive some recent studies argue no relationship (1992 Fama & French) CAPM overpredicts returns return under CAPM > actual return relationship between and return? some studies it is positive some recent studies argue no relationship (1992 Fama & French)

• other factors important in determining returns January effect firm size effect day-of-the-week effect ratio of book value to market value other factors important in determining returns January effect firm size effect day-of-the-week effect ratio of book value to market value
• Slide 46
• problems w/ testing CAPM Roll critique (1977) CAPM not testable do not observe E(R), only R do not observe true R m do not observe true R f results are sensitive to the sample period Roll critique (1977) CAPM not testable do not observe E(R), only R do not observe true R m do not observe true R f results are sensitive to the sample period
