Topic covered: Risk and return
Risk and return move side by side and ignoring any one of these two for investment
decision can result in the irrational decision. Rational decision making requires investors
to analyze the company’s specific risk contribution of investment along with market
dynamics. Companyspecific risk analysis helps investors to control the unsystematic risk
and to come up with a best possible portfolio (a combination of highest return and lowest
risk). Market dynamics can overprice or underprice a stock that can be a trap for the
investors; Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), Security Market Line (SML) and
Gordon’s Formula can help investors to take a rational decision by calculating fair
pricing of the stocks. Unlike market risk; investors can control the company’s specific
risk if they have calculated the fair price and required rate of return of the available
investment options correctly.
Suppose you have to construct a portfolio for which you have considered three different
sectors (Textile, Chemical and Food). Stock L and K from Chemical and Food sector
have already been selected while one stock is required from the Textile sector to
construct the portfolio. Further, information of three Stocks from the textile sector has
been provided below, and you need to select only one that can be added to your portfolio.
Sectors  Stock  Beta  Required Investment 
Market price  Dividend (current year) 
Textile Sector  A  1.5  25,000  Rs. 35  Rs. 5 that grows at constant rate of 10% 
B  1  25,000  Rs. 29  Rs. 6 that grows at constant rate of 8% 

C  2  25,000  Rs. 40  Rs.10 that grows at a constant rate of 5% 

Chemical sector  L  1.5  30,000  Rs. 42  NA 
Food sector  K  1.0  45,000  Rs. 15  NA 
Note: Riskfree rate is 15%, and market return is 25%
