Introducing a Riskfree Asset
Suppose we introduce the opportunity to invest in a riskfree
asset.
» How does this alter investors’ portfolio choices?
The riskfree asset has a zero variance, and zero covariance with
every other asset (or portfolio).
» var(rf) = 0.
» cov(rf, rj) = 0 for all j.
What is the expected return and variance of a portfolio consisting
of a fraction (1-a) of the riskfree asset and a of the risky asset (or
portfolio)?

The Capital Market Line
The CML gives the tradeoff between risk and return for portfolios
consisting of the riskfree asset and the tangency portfolio M.
» Portfolio M is the market portfolio.
The equation of the CML is:

E (rM )  rf
E (rp )  rf  s p
sM

The expected rate of return on a risky asset can be thought of as
composed of two terms.
» The return on a riskfree security, like U.S. Treasury bills;
compensating investors for the time value of money.
» A risk premium to compensate investors for bearing risk.
E(r) = rf + Risk x [Market Price of Risk]
12
Everybody holds the Market

Everybody holds the tangency portfolio M
» If all hold the same portfolio, it must be the market!
Nobody can do better than holding the market
» If another asset existed which offers a better return for the
Can’t be an equilibrium
Write the weight of asset j in the market portfolio as wj. Then we
have:
  )         )
E rM )   j 1 w j E rj  rf  rf
j N

Var rM )  i 1     j 1 wi w j Covrj , ri )
i N      j N

» Simply use expressions for multi-asset case

13
Hence, if you increase the weight of asset j in your portfolio
(relative to the market),
» Then expected returns increase by:
E  rj )  rf
» Then the riskiness of the portfolio increases by:

i 1 wi Covrj , ri )  Covrj , rM )
N

» Hence, the return/risk gain is:
E  rj )  rf
Cov rj , rM )

» This must be the same for all assets
– Why?
14
All Assets are Equal

Suppose that for two assets A and B:

E rA )  rf             E rB )  rf

CovrA , rM )        CovrB , rM )

» Asset A offers a better return/risk ratio than asset B
– What if everybody does this?
» Hence, in equilibrium, all return/risk ratios must be equal for
all assets
E rA )  rf            E rB )  rf

CovrA , rM )           CovrB , rM )

15
The Capital Asset Pricing Model
If the risk-return tradeoff is the same for all assets, than it is the
one of the market:
E rA )  rf       E rB )  rf           E rM )  rf
                      
CovrA , rM )       CovrB , rM )           Var rM )

This gives the relationship between risk and expected return for
individual stocks and portfolios.

17
The Intuitive Argument For the
CAPM

Everybody holds the same portfolio, hence the market.
Portfolio-risk cannot be diversified.
Investors demand a premium on non-diversifiable risk only,
hence portfolio or market risk.
Beta measures the market risk, hence it is the correct measure
for non-diversifiable risk.

Conclusion:
In a market where investors can diversify by holding many
assets in their portfolio, they demand a risk premium
proportional to beta.

Suppose for a particular stock:
     ) Er )  r

 )

Remember the definition of expected returns:

            )

 )

Then P0 falls, so that E(rj) increases until disequilibrium
vanishes and the equation holds!

The Capital Asset Pricing Model
The appropriate measure of risk for an individual stock is its beta.
Beta measures the stock’s sensitivity to market risk factors.
» The higher the beta, the more sensitive the stock is to market
movements.
The average stock has a beta of 1.0.
Portfolio betas are weighted averages of the betas for the individual
stocks in the portfolio.
The market price of risk is [E(rM)-rf].

Estimating the Expected Rate of
Return on Equity
The SML gives us a way to estimate the expected (or required) rate of
return on equity.

 )            
E rj  r f   j E rM )  r f   
We need estimates of three things:
» Riskfree interest rate, rf.
» Market price of risk, [E(rM)-rf].
» Beta for the stock,j.

28
Estimating the Expected Rate of
Return on Equity
The riskfree rate can be estimated by the current yield on one-year
Treasury bills.
» As of early 1997, one-year Treasury bills were yielding about 5.0%.
The market price of risk can be estimated by looking at the historical
difference between the return on stocks and the return on Treasury
bills.
» This difference has averaged about 8.6% since 1926.
The betas are estimated by regression analysis.

Example of Portfolio Betas and
Expected Returns
What is the beta and expected rate of return of an equally-weighted
portfolio consisting of Exxon and Polaroid?
Portfolio Beta

 p  (1 / 2)(.46)  (1 / 2)(.96)
 p  0.71

Expected Rate of Return
E (rp )  5.0%  (8.6%)(0.71)  111%

How would you construct a portfolio with the same beta and expected
return, but with the lowest possible standard deviation?
Use the figure on the following page to locate the equally-weighted
portfolio of Exxon and Polaroid. Also locate the minimum variance
portfolio with the same expected return.

Example
The S&P500 Index has a standard deviation of about 12%

Gold mining stocks have a standard deviation of about 24%
per year and a correlation with the S&P500 of about r = 0.15.
If the yield on U.S. Treasury bills is 6% and the market risk
premium is [E(rM)-rf] = 7.0%, what is the expected rate of
return on gold mining stocks?

Example
The beta for gold mining stocks is calculated as follows:

Question: What portfolio has the same expected return as gold mining
stocks, but the lowest possible standard deviation?
Answer: A portfolio consisting of 70% invested in U.S. Treasury bills
and 30% invested in the S&P500 Index.
Beta  (.7)( 0)  (.3)(1.0)  0.30

Using the CAPM for
Project Evaluation

Suppose Microsoft is considering an expansion of its current
operations.
» The expansion will cost \$100 million today
» expected to generate a net cash flow of \$25 million per year
for the next 20 years.
» What is the appropriate risk-adjusted discount rate for the
expansion project?
» What is the NPV of Microsoft’s investment project?

35
Microsoft’s Expansion Project
The risk-adjusted discount rate for the project, rp, can be
estimated by using Microsoft’s beta and the CAPM.


rP  r f   E rm   r f   )

Thus, the NPV of the project is:

rP  0.05  1.2 *  0.086)

36
Company Risk Versus
Project Risk
The company-wide discount rate is the appropriate discount rate for
evaluating investment projects that have the same risk as the firm as
a whole.
For investment projects that have different risk from the firm’s
existing assets, the company-wide discount rate is not the appropriate
discount rate.
In these cases, we must rely on industry betas for estimates of
project risk.

37
Company Risk versus
Project Risk

Suppose Microsoft is considering investing in the development of a
new airline.
» What is the risk of this investment?
» What is the appropriate risk-adjusted discount rate for evaluating
the project?
» Suppose the project offers a 17% rate of return. Is the investment
a good one for Microsoft?

The project risk is closer to the risk of other airlines than it is to the risk
The appropriate risk-adjusted discount rate for the project depends
upon the risk of the project. If the average asset beta for airlines is

Project Evaluation: Rules
The risk of an investment project is given by the project’s beta.
» Can be different from company’s beta
» Can often use industry as approximation
The Security Market Line provides an estimate of an appropriate
discount rate for the project based upon the project’s beta.
» Same company may use different discount rates for different
projects
This discount rate is used when computing the project’s net present
value.

Summary
Optimal investments depend on trading off risk and return
» Investors with higher risk tolerance invest more in risky
assets
» Only risk that can’t be diversified counts
If investors can borrow and lend, then everybody holds a
combination of two portfolios
» The market portfolio of all risky assets
» The riskless asset
– Covariance with the market portfolio counts
