  • CHAPTER NINE Capital Market Theory

    1. 1. CHAPTER NINE Capital Market Theory Cleary / Jones Investments: Analysis and Management
    2. 2. Learning Objectives <ul><li>To explain capital market theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Model </li></ul><ul><li>To discuss the importance and composition of the market portfolio </li></ul><ul><li>To describe two important relationships in CAPM as represented by the capital market line and the security market line </li></ul>
    3. 3. Learning Objectives <ul><li>To describe how betas are estimated and how beta is used </li></ul><ul><li>To discuss the Arbitrage Pricing Theory as an alternative to the Capital Asset Pricing Model </li></ul>
    4. 4. Capital Asset Pricing Model <ul><li>Focus on the equilibrium relationship between the risk and expected return on risky assets </li></ul><ul><li>Builds on Markowitz portfolio theory </li></ul><ul><li>Each investor is assumed to diversify his or her portfolio according to the Markowitz model </li></ul>
    5. 5. CAPM Assumptions <ul><li>All investors: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the same information to generate an efficient frontier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have the same one-period time horizon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can borrow or lend money at the risk-free rate of return </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No transaction costs, no personal income taxes, no inflation </li></ul><ul><li>No single investor can affect the price of a stock </li></ul><ul><li>Capital markets are in equilibrium </li></ul>
    6. 6. Market Portfolio <ul><li>Most important implication of the CAPM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All investors hold the same optimal portfolio of risky assets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The optimal portfolio is at the highest point of tangency between RF and the efficient frontier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The portfolio of all risky assets is the optimal risky portfolio </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Called the market portfolio </li></ul></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Characteristics of the Market Portfolio <ul><li>All risky assets must be in portfolio, so it is completely diversified </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contains only systematic risk </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All securities included in proportion to their market value </li></ul><ul><li>Unobservable, but proxied by TSE 300 </li></ul><ul><li>In theory, should contain all risky assets worldwide </li></ul>
    8. 8. Capital Market Line <ul><li>Line from RF to L is capital market line (CML) </li></ul><ul><li>x = risk premium = E(R M ) - RF </li></ul><ul><li>y = risk =  M </li></ul><ul><li>Slope = x/y </li></ul><ul><li>= [E(R M ) - RF]/  M </li></ul><ul><li>y-intercept = RF </li></ul>E(R M ) RF Risk  M L M y x
    9. 9. Capital Market Line <ul><li>Slope of the CML is the market price of risk for efficient portfolios, or the equilibrium price of risk in the market </li></ul><ul><li>Relationship between risk and expected return for portfolio P (Equation for CML): </li></ul>
    10. 10. Security Market Line <ul><li>CML Equation only applies to markets in equilibrium and efficient portfolios </li></ul><ul><li>The Security Market Line depicts the tradeoff between risk and expected return for individual securities </li></ul><ul><li>Under CAPM, all investors hold the market portfolio </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How does an individual security contribute to the risk of the market portfolio? </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. Security Market Line <ul><li>Equation for expected return for an individual stock similar to CML Equation </li></ul>
    12. 12. Security Market Line <ul><li>Beta = 1.0 implies as risky as market </li></ul><ul><li>Securities A and B are more risky than the market </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Beta > 1.0 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Security C is less risky than the market </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Beta < 1.0 </li></ul></ul>A B C E(R M ) RF 0 1.0 2.0 0.5 1.5 SML Beta M E(R)
    13. 13. Security Market Line <ul><li>Beta measures systematic risk </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Measures relative risk compared to the market portfolio of all stocks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Volatility different than market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All securities should lie on the SML </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The expected return on the security should be only that return needed to compensate for systematic risk </li></ul></ul>
    14. 14. CAPM’s Expected Return-Beta Relationship <ul><li>Required rate of return on an asset (k i ) is composed of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>risk-free rate (RF) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>risk premium (  i [ E(R M ) - RF ]) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Market risk premium adjusted for specific security </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>k i = RF +  i [ E(R M ) - RF ] </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The greater the systematic risk, the greater the required return </li></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Estimating the SML <ul><li>Treasury Bill rate used to estimate RF </li></ul><ul><li>Expected market return unobservable </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Estimated using past market returns and taking an expected value </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Estimating individual security betas difficult </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Only company-specific factor in CAPM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires asset-specific forecast </li></ul></ul>
    16. 16. Estimating Beta <ul><li>Market model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Relates the return on each stock to the return on the market, assuming a linear relationship </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>R i =  i +  i R M +e i </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Characteristic line </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Line fit to total returns for a security relative to total returns for the market index </li></ul></ul>
    17. 17. How Accurate Are Beta Estimates? <ul><li>Betas change with a company’s situation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not stationary over time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Estimating a future beta </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May differ from the historical beta </li></ul></ul><ul><li>R M represents the total of all marketable assets in the economy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Approximated with a stock market index </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Approximates return on all common stocks </li></ul></ul>
    18. 18. <ul><li>No one correct number of observations and time periods for calculating beta </li></ul><ul><li>The regression calculations of the true  and  from the characteristic line are subject to estimation error </li></ul><ul><li>Portfolio betas more reliable than individual security betas </li></ul>How Accurate Are Beta Estimates?
    19. 19. Arbitrage Pricing Theory <ul><li>Based on the Law of One Price </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Two otherwise identical assets cannot sell at different prices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Equilibrium prices adjust to eliminate all arbitrage opportunities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Unlike CAPM, APT does not assume </li></ul><ul><ul><li>single-period investment horizon, absence of personal taxes, riskless borrowing or lending, mean-variance decisions </li></ul></ul>
    20. 20. Factors <ul><li>APT assumes returns generated by a factor model </li></ul><ul><li>Factor Characteristics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each risk must have a pervasive influence on stock returns </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Risk factors must influence expected return and have nonzero prices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Risk factors must be unpredictable to the market </li></ul></ul>
    21. 21. APT Model <ul><li>Most important are the deviations of the factors from their expected values </li></ul><ul><li>The expected return-risk relationship for the APT can be described as: </li></ul><ul><li>E(R i ) =RF +b i1 (risk premium for factor 1) +b i2 (risk premium for factor 2) +… +b in (risk premium for factor n) </li></ul>
    22. 22. Problems with APT <ul><li>Factors are not well specified ex ante </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To implement the APT model, the factors that account for the differences among security returns are required </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>CAPM identifies market portfolio as single factor </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Neither CAPM or APT has been proven superior </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Both rely on unobservable expectations </li></ul></ul>
