1 Optimal Risky Portfolio, CAPM, and APT Diversification Portfolio of Two Risky Assets Asset Allocation with Risky and Risk-free Assets Markowitz Portfolio Selection Model CAPM APT (arbitrage pricing theory)

2 Top-down process Capital allocation between the risky portfolio and risk-free assets Asset allocation across broad asset classes Security selection of individual assets within each asset class Chapter 1: Overview

3 Diversification Effect

4 Systematic risk v. Nonsystematic Risk Systematic risk, (nondiversifiable risk or market risk), is the risk that remains after extensive diversifications Nonsystematic risk (diversifiable risk, unique risk, firm-specific risk) – risks can be eliminated through diversifications

5 r p = w 1 r 1 + w 2 r 2 w 1 = Proportion of funds in Security 1 w 2 = Proportion of funds in Security 2 r 1 = Expected return on Security 1 r 2 = Expected return on Security 2 Two-Security Portfolio: Return

6  p 2 = w 1 2  1 2 + w 2 2  2 2 + 2w 1 w 2 Cov(r 1 r 2 )  1 2 = Variance of Security 1  2 2 = Variance of Security 2 Cov(r 1 r 2 ) = Covariance of returns for security 1 and security 2 Two-Security Portfolio: Risk

7  1,2 = Correlation coefficient of returns Cov(r 1 r 2 ) =  1,2  1  2  1 = Standard deviation of returns for Security 1  2 = Standard deviation of returns for Security 2 Covariance

8 Range of values for  1,2 + 1.0 >  >-1.0 If  = 1.0, the securities would be perfectly positively correlated If  = - 1.0, the securities would be perfectly negatively correlated Correlation Coefficients: Possible Values

9 7-9 Three-Asset Portfolio

10 Expected Return and Portfolio Weights

11 Expected Return and Standard Deviation Look at ρ=-1, 0 or 1. Minimum Variance Portfolio

12 The relationship depends on correlation coefficient. -1.0 <  < +1.0 The smaller the correlation, the greater the risk reduction potential. If  = +1.0, no risk reduction is possible. The Effect of Correlation

13 7-13 The Minimum Variance Portfolio The minimum variance portfolio is the portfolio composed of the risky assets that has the smallest standard deviation, the portfolio with least risk. See footnote 4 on page 204. When correlation is less than +1, the portfolio standard deviation may be smaller than that of either of the individual component assets. When correlation is -1, the standard deviation of the minimum variance portfolio is zero.

14 Optimal Portfolio Given a level of risk aversion, on can determine the portfolio that provides the highest level of utility. See formula on page 205. Note: no risk free asset is involved. Chapter 1: Overview

15 Capital Asset Line A graph showing all feasible risk-return combinations of a risky and risk-free asset. See page 206 for possible CAL Optimal CAL – what is the objective function in the optimization?

16 Sharpe ratio Reward-to-volatility (Sharpe ratio) Page 206 Chapter 1: Overview

17 Optimal CAL and the Optimal Risky Portfolio Equation 7.13, page 207

18 Exercises A pension fund manager is considering 3 mutual funds. The first is a stock fund, the second is a long-term government and corporate bond fund, and the third is a T- bill money market fund that yields a rate of 8%. The probability distribution of the risky funds is as following: Exp(ret) Std Dev Stock fund 20% 30% bond Fund12% 15% The correlation between the fund returns is 0.10 Answer Problem 4 through 6, page 225. Also see Example 7.2 (optimal risky portfolio) on page 208

19 Determination of the Optimal Overall Portfolio

20 Markowitz Portfolio Selection Generalize the portfolio construction problem to the case of many risky securities and a risk-free asset Steps Get minimum variance frontier Efficient frontier – the part above global MVP An optimal allocation between risky and risk-free asset

21 Minimum-Variance Frontier

22 Capital Allocation Lines and Efficient Frontier

23 Harry Markowitz laid down the foundation of modern portfolio theory in 1952. The CAPM was developed by William Sharpe, John Lintner, Jan Mossin in mid 1960s. It is the equilibrium model that underlies all modern financial theory. Derived using principles of diversification with simplified assumptions. Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

24 Individual investors are price takers. Single-period investment horizon. Investments are limited to traded financial assets. No taxes and transaction costs. Information is costless and available to all investors. Investors are rational mean-variance optimizers. There are homogeneous expectations. Assumptions

25 Resulting Equilibrium Conditions All investors will hold the same portfolio for risky assets – market portfolio Market portfolio contains all securities and the proportion of each security is its market value as a percentage of total market value Risk premium on the market depends on the average risk aversion of all market participants Risk premium on an individual security is a function of its covariance with the market

27 CAPM E(R)=R f +β*(Rm-R f )

28 Security Market line and a Positive-Alpha Stock

29 CAPM Applications: Index Model To move from expected to realized returns—use the index model in excess return form: R i =α i +β i R M +e i The index model beta coefficient turns out to be the same beta as that of the CAPM expected return-beta relationship What would be the testable implication?

30 Estimates of Individual Mutual Fund Alphas

31 CAPM Applications: Market Model Market model R i -r f =α i +β i (R M -r f )+e i Test implication: α i =0

32 Is CAMP Testable? Is the CAPM testable Proxies must be used for the market portfolio CAPM is still considered the best available description of security pricing and is widely accepted

33 Other CAPM Models: Multiperiod Model Page 303 Considering CAPM in the multi-period setting Other than comovement with the market portfolio, uncertainty in investment opportunity and changes in prices of consumption goods may affect stock returns Equation (9.14)

34 Other CAPM Models: Consumption Based Model No longer consider the comovements in returns of individual securities with returns of market portfolios Key intuition: investors balance between today’s consumption and the saving and investments that will support future consumption Page 305; Equation (9.15)

35 Liquidity and CAPM Liquidity – the ease and speed with which an asset can be sold at fair market value. Illiquidity Premium The discount in security price that results from illiquidity is large Compensation for liquidity risk – inanticipated change in liquidity Research supports a premium for illiquidity. Amihud and Mendelson and Acharya and Pedersen

36 Illiquidity and Average Returns

37 APT Arbitrage Pricing Theory This is a multi-factor approach in pricing stock returns. See chapter 10

38 Fama-French Three-Factor Model The factors chosen are variables that on past evidence seem to predict average returns well and may capture the risk premiums (page 335) r it =α i +β iM RM t +β iSMB SMB t +β iHML HML t +e it Where: SMB = Small Minus Big, i.e., the return of a portfolio of small stocks in excess of the return on a portfolio of large stocks HML = High Minus Low, i.e., the return of a portfolio of stocks with a high book to-market ratio in excess of the return on a portfolio of stocks with a low book-to-market ratio http://mba.tuck.dartmouth.edu/pages/faculty/ken.french/
