  • 1. Risk and Rates of Return Return Risk
  • 2.
    • Since Treasury’s are essentially free of default risk, the rate of return on a Treasury security is considered the “risk-free” rate of return.
    For a Treasury security, what is the required rate of return? Required rate of return = Risk-free rate of return
  • 3.
    • How large of a risk premium should we require to buy a corporate security?
    Required rate of return = Risk-free rate of return + Risk Premium For a corporate stock or bond , what is the required rate of return?
  • 4.
    • Expected Return - the return that an investor expects to earn on an asset, given its price, growth potential, etc.
    • Required Return - the return that an investor requires on an asset given its risk .
    Returns

    • State of Probability Return
    • Economy (P) Orl. Utility Orl. Tech
    • Recession .20 4% -10%
    • Normal .50 10% 14%
    • Boom .30 14% 30%
    • For each firm, the expected return on the stock is just a weighted average :

    • Recession .20 4% -10%
    • Normal .50 10% 14%
    • Boom .30 14% 30%
    • For each firm, the expected return on the stock is just a weighted average :
    • k = P(k 1 )*k 1 + P(k 2 )*k 2 + ...+ P(k n )*kn

    • Recession .20 4% -10%
    • Normal .50 10% 14%
    • Boom .30 14% 30%
          • k = P(k 1 )*k 1 + P(k 2 )*k 2 + ...+ P(k n )*kn
          • k (OU) = .2 (4%) + .5 (10%) + .3 (14%) = 10%

    • k = P(k 1 )*k 1 + P(k 2 )*k 2 + ...+ P(k n )*kn
    • k (OI) = .2 (-10%)+ .5 (14%) + .3 (30%) = 14%
    Expected Return
  • 9.
    • The possibility that an actual return will differ from our expected return.
    • Uncertainty in the distribution of possible outcomes.
    What is Risk?
  • 10. What is Risk?
    • Uncertainty in the distribution of possible outcomes.
    Company B return Company A return
  • 11.
    • A more scientific approach is to examine the stock’s STANDARD DEVIATION of returns.
    • Standard deviation is a measure of the dispersion of possible outcomes.
    • The greater the standard deviation, the greater the uncertainty, and therefore , the greater the RISK.
    How do we Measure Risk?
