Achievable Portfolio Combinations

The Two-Asset Case

It is possible to construct a series of portfolios with different risk/return characteristics just by varying the weights of the two assets in the portfolio. Assets A and B are assumed to have a correlation coefficient of -0.379 and the following individual return/risk characteristics
Expected Return 8% 10% Standard Deviation 8.72% 22.69%

Asset A Asset B

The following table shows the portfolio characteristics for 100 different weighting schemes for just these two securities:

Achievable Set of Portfolio Combinations

Getting to the n Asset Case

In a real world investment universe with all of the investment alternatives (stocks, bonds, money market securities, hybrid instruments, gold real estate, etc.) it is possible to construct many different alternative portfolios out of risky securities. Each portfolio will have its own unique expected return and risk. Whenever you construct a portfolio, you can measure two fundamental characteristics of the portfolio:
Portfolio expected return (ERp) Portfolio risk (p)

CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Underlying Assumption
Investors are Rational and Risk-Averse

We assume investors are risk-averse wealth maximizers. This means they will not willingly undertake fair gamble.
A risk-averse investor prefers the risk-free situation. The corollary of this is that the investor needs a risk premium to be induced into a risky situation. Evidence of this is the willingness of investors to pay insurance premiums to get out of risky situations.

The implication of this, is that investors will only choose portfolios that are members of the efficient set (frontier).

Risk-free Investing
When we introduce the presence of a risk-free investment, a whole new set of portfolio combinations becomes possible. We can estimate the return on a portfolio made up of RF asset and a risky asset A letting the weight w invested in the risky asset and the weight invested in RF as (1 w)

The Capital Asset Pricing Model

The Hypothesized Relationship between Risk and Return

What is it?

An hypothesis by Professor William Sharpe

Hypothesizes that investors require higher rates of return for greater levels of relevant risk. There are no prices on the model, instead it hypothesizes the relationship between risk and return for individual securities. It is often used, however, the price securities and investments.

9 - 35

The Capital Asset Pricing Model

How is it Used?

Uses include:
Determining the cost of equity capital. The relevant risk in the dividend discount model to estimate a stocks intrinsic (inherent economic worth) value. (As illustrated below)

Assumptions

CAPM is based on the following assumptions:

1. All investors have identical expectations about expected returns, standard deviations, and correlation coefficients for all securities. 2. All investors have the same one-period investment time horizon. 3. All investors can borrow or lend money at the risk-free rate of return (RF). 4. There are no transaction costs. 5. There are no personal income taxes so that investors are indifferent between capital gains an dividends. 6. There are many investors, and no single investor can affect the price of a stock through his or her buying and selling decisions. Therefore, investors are price-takers. 7. Capital markets are in equilibrium. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 37

Market Portfolio and Capital Market Line

The assumptions have the following implications:
1. The optimal risky portfolio is the one that is tangent to the efficient frontier on a line that is drawn from RF. This portfolio will be the same for all investors. 2. This optimal risky portfolio will be the market portfolio (M) which contains all risky securities.

The Capital Asset Pricing Model

The Market Portfolio and the Capital Market Line (CML)

The slope of the CML is the incremental expected return divided by the incremental risk.

[9-4]

Slope of the CML =

ER M - RF M

This is called the market price for risk. Or The equilibrium price of risk in the capital market.

The Capital Market Line

Using the CML Expected versus Required Returns

In an efficient capital market investors will require a return on a portfolio that compensates them for the risk-free return as well as the market price for risk. This means that portfolios should offer returns along the CML.

The Capital Asset Pricing Model

Risk-Adjusted Performance and the Sharpe Ratios
William Sharpe identified a ratio that can be used to assess the riskadjusted performance of managed funds (such as mutual funds and pension plans). It is called the Sharpe ratio:

[9-6]

Sharpe ratio =

ER P - RF P

Sharpe ratio is a measure of portfolio performance that describes how well an assets returns compensate investors for the risk taken. Its value is the premium earned over the RF divided by portfolio risk so it is measuring valued added per unit of risk. Sharpe ratios are calculated ex post (after-the-fact) and are used to rank portfolios or assess the effectiveness of the portfolio manager in adding value to the portfolio over and above a benchmark.

Sharpe Ratios and Income Trusts

Table 9 1 (on the following slide) illustrates return, standard deviation, Sharpe and beta coefficient for four very different portfolios from 2002 to 2004. Income Trusts did exceedingly well during this time, however, the recent announcement of Finance Minister Flaherty and the subsequent drop in Income Trust values has done much to eliminate this historical performance.

CAPM and Market Risk

The Capital Asset Pricing Model

Diversifiable and Non-Diversifiable Risk

CML applies to efficient portfolios Volatility (risk) of individual security returns are caused by two different factors:
Non-diversifiable risk (system wide changes in the economy and markets that affect all securities in varying degrees) Diversifiable risk (company-specific factors that affect the returns of only one security)

Figure 9 7 illustrates what happens to portfolio risk as the portfolio is first invested in only one investment, and then slowly invested, naively, in more and more securities.

Relevant Risk
Drawing a Conclusion from Figure 9 - 7

Figure 9 7 demonstrates that an individual securities volatility of return comes from two factors:
Systematic factors Company-specific factors

When combined into portfolios, company-specific risk is diversified away. Since all investors are diversified then in an efficient market, no-one would be willing to pay a premium for company-specific risk. Relevant risk to diversified investors then is systematic risk. Systematic risk is measured using the Beta Coefficient.

Measuring Systematic Risk The Beta Coefficient

The Beta Coefficient

What is the Beta Coefficient?

A measure of systematic (non-diversifiable) risk As a coefficient the beta is a pure number and has no units of measure.

9 - 52

The Beta Coefficient

How Can We Estimate the Value of the Beta Coefficient?

There are two basic approaches to estimating the beta coefficient:

1. Using a formula (and subjective forecasts) 2. Use of regression (using past holding period returns)
(Figure 9 8 on the following slide illustrates the characteristic line used to estimate the beta coefficient)

The Beta Coefficient

How is the Beta Coefficient Interpreted?
The beta of the market portfolio is ALWAYS = 1.0 The beta of a security compares the volatility of its returns to the volatility of the market returns:
s = 1.0 s > 1.0 s < 1.0 s < 0.0 the security has the same volatility as the market as a whole aggressive investment with volatility of returns greater than the market defensive investment with volatility of returns less than the market an investment with returns that are negatively correlated with the returns of the market

The Beta of a Portfolio

The beta of a portfolio is simply the weighted average of the betas of the individual asset betas that make up the portfolio.

[9-8]

P = wA A + wB B + ... + wn n

Weights of individual assets are found by dividing the value of the investment by the value of the total portfolio.

The Security Market Line

The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

The CAPM and Market Risk

The Security Market Line (SML) The SML is the hypothesized relationship between return (the dependent variable) and systematic risk (the beta coefficient). It is a straight line relationship defined by the following formula:

[9-9]

ki = RF + ( ERM RF ) i

Where:
ki = the required return on security i ERM RF = market premium for risk i = the beta coefficient for security i
(See Figure 9 - 9 on the following slide for the graphical representation)

The CAPM in Summary

The SML and CML

The CAPM is well entrenched and widely used by investors, managers and financial institutions. It is a single factor model because it based on the hypothesis that required rate of return can be predicted using one factor systematic risk The SML is used to price individual investments and uses the beta coefficient as the measure of risk. The CML is used with diversified portfolios and uses the standard deviation as the measure of risk.
CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 63

Alternative Pricing Models

The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Challenges to CAPM
Empirical tests suggest:
CAPM does not hold well in practice:
Ex post SML is an upward sloping line Ex ante y (vertical) intercept is higher that RF Slope is less than what is predicted by theory

Beta possesses no explanatory power for predicting stock returns (Fama and French, 1992)

CAPM remains in widespread use despite the foregoing.

Advantages include relative simplicity and intuitive logic.

Because of the problems with CAPM, other models have been developed including:
Fama-French (FF) Model Abitrage Pricing Theory (APT)
CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 65

Alternative Asset Pricing Models

The Fama French Model

A pricing model that uses three factors to relate expected returns to risk including:
1. 2. 3. A market factor related to firm size. The market value of a firms common equity (MVE) Ratio of a firms book equity value to its market value of equity. (BE/MVE)

This model has become popular, and many think it does a better job than the CAPM in explaining ex ante stock returns.

9 - 66

Alternative Asset Pricing Models

The Arbitrage Pricing Theory A pricing model that uses multiple factors to relate expected returns to risk by assuming that asset returns are linearly related to a set of indexes, which proxy risk factors that influence security returns.
[9-10]

ERi = a0 + bi1 F1 + bi1 F1 +... + bin Fn

It is based on the no-arbitrage principle which is the rule that two otherwise identical assets cannot sell at different prices. Underlying factors represent broad economic forces which are inherently unpredictable.

9 - 67

Alternative Asset Pricing Models

The Arbitrage Pricing Theory the Model
Underlying factors represent broad economic forces which are inherently unpredictable.

[9-10]

ERi = a0 + bi1 F1 + bi1 F1 +... + bin Fn

Where:
ERi = the expected return on security i a0 = the expected return on a security with zero systematic risk bi = the sensitivity of security i to a given risk factor Fi = the risk premium for a given risk factor

The model demonstrates that a securitys risk is based on its sensitivity to broad economic forces. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 68

Alternative Asset Pricing Models

The Arbitrage Pricing Theory Challenges

Underlying factors represent broad economic forces which are inherently unpredictable. Ross and Roll identify five systematic factors:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Changes in expected inflation Unanticipated changes in inflation Unanticipated changes in industrial production Unanticipated changes in the default-risk premium Unanticipated changes in the term structure of interest rates

Clearly, something that isnt forecast, cant be used to price securities todaythey can only be used to explain prices after the fact.
CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 69

Summary and Conclusions

In this chapter you have learned:
How the efficient frontier can be expanded by introducing riskfree borrowing and lending leading to a super efficient frontier called the Capital Market Line (CML) The Security Market Line can be derived from the CML and provides a way to estimate a market-based, required return for any security or portfolio based on market risk as measured by the beta. That alternative asset pricing models exist including the FamaFrench Model and the Arbitrage Pricing Theory.

APPENDIX 1

Calculating a Beta Coefficient Using Ex Ante Returns

Ex Ante means forecast You would use ex ante return data if historical rates of return are somehow not indicative of the kinds of returns the company will produce in the future. A good example of this is Air Canada or American Airlines, before and after September 11, 2001. After the World Trade Centre terrorist attacks, a fundamental shift in demand for air travel occurred. The historical returns on airlines are not useful in estimating future returns.

The Term Relevant Risk

What does the term relevant risk mean in the context of the CAPM?

It is generally assumed that all investors are wealth maximizing risk averse people It is also assumed that the markets where these people trade are highly efficient In a highly efficient market, the prices of all the securities adjust instantly to cause the expected return of the investment to equal the required return When E(r) = R(r) then the market price of the stock equals its inherent worth (intrinsic value) In this perfect world, the R(r) then will justly and appropriately compensate the investor only for the risk that they perceive as relevant Hence investors are only rewarded for systematic risk.
NOTE: The amount of systematic risk varies by investment. High systematic risk occurs when R-square is high, and the beta coefficient is greater than 1.0

9 - 78

The Proportion of Total Risk that is Systematic

Every investment in the financial markets vary with respect to the percentage of total risk that is systematic. Some stocks have virtually no systematic risk.
Such stocks are not influenced by the health of the economy in generaltheir financial results are predominantly influenced by company-specific factors. An example is cigarette companiespeople consume cigarettes because they are addictedso it doesnt matter whether the economy is healthy or notthey just continue to smoke. Returns on these stocks are strongly influenced by the health of the economy. Durable goods manufacturers tend to have a high degree of systematic risk. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 79

Some stocks have a high proportion of their total risk that is systematic

Cov(k i k M ) Beta = Var(k M )

You need to calculate the covariance of the returns between the stock and the marketas well as the variance of the market returns. To do this you must follow these steps: Calculate the expected returns for the stock and the market Using the expected returns for each, measure the variance and standard deviation of both return distributions Now calculate the covariance Use the results to calculate the beta CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 80

Using the expected return, calculate the deviations away from the mean, square those deviations and then weight the squared deviations by the probability of their occurrence. Add up the weighted and squared deviations from the mean and you have found the variance!

Covariance
From Chapter 8 you know the formula for the covariance between the returns on the stock and the returns on the market is:

[8-12]

i =1

Covariance is an absolute measure of the degree of comovement of returns.

CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 87

Correlation Coefficient
Correlation is covariance normalized by the product of the standard deviations of both securities. It is a relative measure of co-movement of returns on a scale from -1 to +1. The formula for the correlation coefficient between the returns on the stock and the returns on the market is:

[8-13]

AB =

COV AB

AB

The correlation coefficient will always have a value in the range of +1 to -1.
+1 is perfect positive correlation (there is no diversification potential when combining these two securities together in a two-asset portfolio.) - 1 - is perfect negative correlation (there should be a relative weighting mix of these two securities in a two-asset portfolio that will eliminate all portfolio risk)

The Beta Measured

Using Ex Ante Covariance (stock, market) and Market Variance Now you can substitute the values for covariance and the variance of the returns on the market to find the beta of the stock:

Beta =

.01335 = 1.8 .007425

A beta that is greater than 1 means that the investment is aggressiveits returns are more volatile than the market as a whole. If the market returns were expected to go up by 10%, then the stock returns are expected to rise by 18%. If the market returns are expected to fall by 10%, then the stock returns are expected to fall by 18%. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 90

If you now place the covariance of the market with itself value in the beta formula you get:

Cov MM .007425 Beta = = = 1 .0 Var(R M ) .007425

The beta coefficient of the market will always be 1.0 because you are measuring the market returns against market returns. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 92

Using the Security Market Line

Expected versus Required Return

How Do We use Expected and Required Rates of Return?

Once you have estimated the expected and required rates of return, you can plot them on the SML and see if the stock is under or overpriced.

% Return
R(ks) = 4.76% E(kM)= 4.2%

E(Rs) = 5.0%

SML

Risk-free Rate = 3%

BM= 1.0

Bs = 1.464

9 - 94

How Do We use Expected and Required Rates of Return?

The stock is fairly priced if the expected return = the required return. This is what we would expect to see normally or most of the time in an efficient market where securities are properly priced.

% Return
E(Rs) = R(Rs) 4.76%

SML

E(RM)= 4.2%

Risk-free Rate = 3%

B M= 1.0

BS = 1.464

9 - 95

Use of the Forecast Beta

We can use the forecast beta, together with an estimate of the risk-free rate and the market premium for risk to calculate the investors required return on the stock using the CAPM:

Required Return = RF + i [E (k M ) RF]

This is a market-determined return based on the current riskfree rate (RF) as measured by the 91-day, government of Canada T-bill yield, and a current estimate of the market premium for risk (kM RF) CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 96

Conclusions
Analysts can make estimates or forecasts for the returns on stock and returns on the market portfolio. Those forecasts can be analyzed to estimate the beta coefficient for the stock. The required return on a stock can then be calculated using the CAPM but you will need the stocks beta coefficient, the expected return on the market portfolio and the risk-free rate. The required return is then using in Dividend Discount Models to estimate the intrinsic value (inherent worth) of the stock.
CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 97

APPENDIX 2

The Regression Approach to Measuring the Beta

You need to gather historical data about the stock and the market You can use annual data, monthly data, weekly data or daily data. However, monthly holding period returns are most commonly used. Daily data is too noisy (short-term random volatility) Annual data will extend too far back in to time You need at least thirty (30) observations of historical data. Hopefully, the period over which you study the historical returns of the stock is representative of the normal condition of the firm and its relationship to the market. If the firm has changed fundamentally since these data were produced (for example, the firm may have merged with another firm or have divested itself of a major subsidiary) there is good reason to believe that future returns will not reflect the pastand this approach to beta estimation SHOULD NOT be used.rather, use the ex ante approach. CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 99

Historical Beta Estimation

The Approach Used to Create the Characteristic Line
In this example, we have regressed the quarterly returns on the stock against the quarterly returns of a surrogate for the market (TSE 300 total return composite index) and then using Excelused the charting feature to plot the historical points and add a regression trend line.
Charac teristic Line (Regression) 30.0% 25.0% Returns on Stock 20.0% 15.0% 10.0% 5.0% -40.0% 0.0% -20.0% -5.0% 0.0% -10.0% -15.0% Returns on TSE 300 20.0% 40.0%

The slope is the beta coefficient.

CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Characteristic Line
The characteristic line is a regression line that represents the relationship between the returns on the stock and the returns on the market over a past period of time. (It will be used to forecast the future, assuming the future will be similar to the past.) The slope of the Characteristic Line is the Beta Coefficient. The degree to which the characteristic line explains the variability in the dependent variable (returns on the stock) is measured by the coefficient of determination. (also known as the R2 (r-squared or coefficient of determination)). If the coefficient of determination equals 1.00, this would mean that all of the points of observation would lie on the line. This would mean that the characteristic line would explain 100% of the variability of the dependent variable. The alpha is the vertical intercept of the regression (characteristic line). Many stock analysts search out stocks with high alphas.

CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

9 - 101

Low R2
An R2 that approaches 0.00 (or 0%) indicates that the characteristic (regression) line explains virtually none of the variability in the dependent variable. This means that virtually of the risk of the security is company-specific. This also means that the regression model has virtually no predictive ability. In this case, you should use other approaches to value the stockdo not use the estimated beta coefficient.

Characteristic Line for Imperial Tobacco

CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

High R2
An R2 that approaches 1.00 (or 100%) indicates that the characteristic (regression) line explains virtually all of the variability in the dependent variable. This means that virtually of the risk of the security is systematic. This also means that the regression model has a strong predictive ability. if you can predict what the market will dothen you can predict the returns on the stock itself with a great deal of accuracy.

Diversifiable Risk
(Non-systematic Risk)

Volatility in a securitys returns caused by companyspecific factors (both positive and negative) such as:
a single company strike a spectacular innovation discovered through the companys R&D program equipment failure for that one company management competence or management incompetence for that particular firm a jet carrying the senior management team of the firm crashes (this could be either a positive or negative event, depending on the competence of the management team) the patented formula for a new drug discovered by the firm.

Obviously, diversifiable risk is that unique factor that influences only the one firm.

OK lets go back and look at raw data gathering and data normalization
A common source for stock of information is Yahoo.com You will also need to go to the library a use the TSX Review (a monthly periodical) to obtain:
Number of shares outstanding for the firm each month Ending values for the total return composite index (surrogate for the market)

You want data for at least 30 months. For each month you will need:
Ending stock price Number of shares outstanding for the stock Dividend per share paid during the month for the stock Ending value of the market indicator series you plan to use (ie. TSE 300 total return composite index) CHAPTER 9 The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) 9 - 108

You can use the charting feature in Excel to create a scatter plot of the points and to put a line of best fit (the characteristic line) through the points. In Excel, you can edit the chart after it is created by placing the cursor over the chart and right-clicking your mouse. In this edit mode, you can ask it to add a trendline (regression line) Finally, you will want to interpret the Beta (Xcoefficient) the alpha (vertical intercept) and the coefficient of determination.

Obviously the beta (X-coefficient) can simply be read from the regression output.
In this case it was 3.56 making Alcans returns more than 3 times as volatile as the market as a whole. Of course, in this simple example with only 5 observations, you wouldnt want to draw any serious conclusions from this estimate.
