(Round to two decimal places.);5.;Consider;an investment with the following returns over four years;Year;1;3;3;4;Return;19%;9%;16%;13%;a.;The;compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for this investment over the four years is __________%.;(Round to two decimal places.);b.;The;average annual return for this investment over the four years is __________%. (Round to two decimal places.);c.;Which;is a better measurement of the investment?s performance? If the investment?s;returns are independent and identically distributed, which is a better measure;of the investment?s expected return next year?CAGR / arithmetic average (select one) is a better measurement of;the investment?s performance while CAGR;/ arithmetic average (select one);is a better measure of the investment?s expected return next year.;6.;Consider;two local banks. Bank A has 89 loans outstanding, each for $1.0 million that it;expects will be repaid today. Each loan has a 5% probability of default, in;which case the bank is not repaid anything. The chance of default is;independent across all loans. Bank B has only one loan of $89 million;outstanding, which it also expects will be repaid today. It also has a 5%;probability of not being repaid. Calculate the following;a.;The;expected payoff of Bank A is $__________ million. (Round to the nearest million.);b.;The;expected payoff of Bank B is $__________ million. (Round to the nearest million.);c.;The;standard deviation of the overall payoff of Bank A is $__________ million. (Round to four decimal places.);d.;The;standard deviation of the overall payoff of Bank B is $__________ million. (Round to four decimal places.);7.;Suppose;the market premium is 4% and the risk-free interest rate is 3%. Using the data;in the table below, calculate the expected return of investing in each;company?s stock.;Starbucks;Hershey;Autodesk;Beta;1.04;0.19;2.31;The expected;return of Starbuck?s stock is __________ %. (Round;to two decimal places.);The expected;return of Hershey?s stock is __________ %. (Round;to two decimal places.);The expected;return of Autodesk?s stock is __________ %. (Round;to two decimal places.);Why don?t all;investors hold Autodesk?s stock rather than Hershey?s stock?;A.;Hershey?s;stock has less market risk, so investors don?t need as high an expected return;to hold it.;B.;They;would if the numbers in the table were reliable. The problem is that they are;just estimates, so investors cannot rely on them.;C.;Investors;make mistakes, nobody should hold Hershey.;D.;Investors;care about other things besides return, for example, the company?s profits.;8.;Suppose;all possible investment opportunities in the world are limited to the five;stocks listed in the table below.
