    Junior Sayou, a financial analyst for Chargers Products, a manufacturer of stadiumbenches, must evaluate the risk and return of two assets, X and Y. The firm is consideringadding these assets to its diversified asset portfolio. To assess the return and riskof each asset, Junior gathered data on the annual cash flow and beginning- and end-of yearvalues of each asset over the immediately preceding 10 years, 2000–2009. Junior’s investigation suggests that both assets, on average, will tend to perform in thefuture just as they haveduring the past 10 years. He therefore believes that the expected annual return can beestimated by finding the average annual return for each asset over the past 10 years.Return Data for Assets X and Y, 2000–2009Asset X Asset YValue ValueYear Cash flow Beginning Ending Cash flow Beginning Ending2000 $1,000 $20,000 $22,000 $1,500 $20,000 $20,0002001 1,500 22,000 21,000 1,600 20,000 20,0002002 1,400 21,000 24,000 1,700 20,000 21,0002003 1,700 24,000 22,000 1,800 21,000 21,0002004 1,900 22,000 23,000 1,900 21,000 22,0002005 1,600 23,000 26,000 2,000 22,000 23,0002006 1,700 26,000 25,000 2,100 23,000 23,0002007 2,000 25,000 24,000 2,200 23,000 24,0002008 2,100 24,000 27,000 2,300 24,000 25,0002009 2,200 27,000 30,000 2,400 25,000 25,000Junior believes that each asset’s risk can be assessed in two ways: in isolation andas part of the firm’s diversified portfolio of assets. The risk of the assets in isolationcan be found by using the standard deviation and coefficient of variation of returnsover the past 10 years. The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) can be used to assessthe asset’s risk as part of the firm’s portfolio of assets. Applying some sophisticatedquantitative techniques, Junior estimated betas for assets X and Y of 1.60 and 1.10,respectively. In addition, he found that the risk-free rate is currently 7% and that themarket return is 10%.To Doa. Calculate the annual rate of return for each asset in each of the 10 precedingyears, and use those values to find the average annual return for each asset overthe 10-year period.b. Use the returns calculated in part a to find (1) the standard deviation and(2) the coefficient of variation of the returns for each asset over the 10-yearperiod 2000–2009.c. Use your findings in parts a and b to evaluate and discuss the return and riskassociated with each asset. Which asset appears to be preferable? Explain.d. Use the CAPM to find the required return for each asset. Compare this valuewith the average annual returns calculated in part a.e. Compare and contrast your findings in parts c and d. What recommendationswould you give Junior with regard to investing in either of the two assets?Explain to Junior why he is better off using beta rather than the standard deviationand coefficient of variation to assess the risk of each asset.f. Rework parts d and e under each of the following circumstances:(1) A rise of 1% in inflationary expectations causes the risk-free rate to rise to8% and the market return to rise to 11%.(2) As a result of favorable political events, investors suddenly become less riskaverse,causing the market return to drop by 1%, to 9%.

    A monopoly produces a good with a network externality at a constant marginal and average cost of 8. In the first period, its deman is p = 50 - (1/20)Q unless itsells at least Q = 630 units in the first period, in which case its inverse demand curve increases to p = 50 - (1/20β)Q where β > 0. The monopoly knows that itcan sell no output after the second period. The monopoly's objective is to maximize the sum of its profits over the two periods. Assume that the firm must chargethe same price to all consumers in each period, but can charge a different price in each period.(a) If β = 1.2, what price should the firm charge in the first period?
