Stock A has an expected return of 17.6%, a beta of 1.45 on factor 1, anda beta of.86 on factor 2. The risk premium on the factor 1 portfolio is 3.2%. The risk-free rate of return is 5%.

What is therisk-premium on factor 2 if no arbitrage opportunities exist?2%3%4%7.75%Multiple Choice Difficulty: 3 ChallengeSuppose that two factors have been identified for the U.S. economy: the growth rate of industrialproduction, IP, and the inflation rate, IR. IP is expected to be 2%, and IR 2.0%. A stock with a beta of 0.9on IP and 0.4 on IR currently is expected to provide a rate of return of 6%. If industrial production actuallygrows by 4%, while the inflation rate turns out to be 4.0%, what is your revised estimate of the expectedrate of return on the stock?
