3. 2: Dividend yield The common stock of Abaco Co. is expected to pay \$1.60 in dividends next year. Currently, the stock is selling for \$38.90 a share. What is the dividend yield?

4. 3: Dividend yield

5. 4: Capital gains yield Last year, you purchased shares of Baker and Sons, Inc. at a price of \$28.42 a share. Since that time you have received \$1.20 in dividends per share. Currently, the stock is selling for \$31.18 per share. What is the capital gains yield?

6. 5: Capital gains yield

7. 6: Total return Zoma Enterprises pays \$.80 a year as a dividend on their common stock. Currently, this stock sells for \$28.12 a share. Last year at this time the stock was selling for \$31.64 a share. What is the total return on this stock in dollars? What is the percentage total return?

8. 7: Total return

9. History of securities (p.367) Large company Small company Long-term Government bond Treasury bill inflation

10. 8: Nominal vs. real returns Last year, you purchased shares of Benson and Judges, Inc. stock for \$13.50 a share. Since then you received \$.50 per share in dividends. Today, you sold your shares for \$18.20 a share. The inflation rate for the period is 3.5%. What is your nominal rate of return? What is your real rate of return?

11. 9: Nominal vs. real returns

12. 10: Risk premium Assume that the following are the average annual returns for the past decade: Large-company stocks 9.6% Long-term corporate bonds 5.8% U.S. Treasury bills 2.5% Inflation 1.9% What is the risk premium on large-company stocks for this time period?

14. 12: Average return A stock returned 4.8%, 9.3%, 21.6%, -13.2% and 0.4% for the past five years, respectively. What is the average rate of return for the past five years?

15. 13: Average return

16. 14: Variance A stock returned 4.8%, 9.3%, 21.6%, -13.2% and 0.4% for the past five years, respectively. What is the variance?

17. 15: Variance Actual Return Average Return Deviation Squared Deviation .048 .0458 .0022 .0000 . 093 .0458 .0472 .0022 .216 .0458 .1702 .0290 -.132 .0458 -.1778 .0316 .004 .0458 -.0418 .0017 Totals .0000 .0645

18. 16: Standard deviation A stock returned 4.8%, 9.3%, 21.6%, -13.2% and 0.4% for the past five years, respectively. The variance is .016125. What is the standard deviation?

19. 17: Standard deviation The variance, 2 , as computed previously, is .016125.

20. 18: Probability distributions A stock has an average rate of return of 4.58% and a standard deviation of 12.70%. Assume that the returns are normally distributed. What range of returns would you expect to see 68% of the time? 95% of the time? 99% of the time?

21. 19: Probability distributions

22. 20: Probability distributions

23. 21: Probability distributions

24. 22: Probability distributions A stock has an average rate of return of 12.9% and a standard deviation of 15.3%. Assume the returns are normally distributed. What is the probability that you will lose more than one-third of your investment in this stock in any one year?

25. 23: Probability distributions The probability of losing more than one-third (33%) of your investment in this stock in any one year is less than of 1%. 68% .129 (1 .153) -2.4% .129 + (1 .153) 28.2% 95% .129 (2 .153) -17.7% .129 + (2 .153) 43.5% 99% .129 (3 .153) -33.0% .129 + (3 .153) 58.8%

26. 24: Arithmetic vs. geometric averages A stock has the following year-end prices and dividends. Year Price Dividend 0 \$38.16 --- 1 \$39.43 \$.60 2 \$38.04 \$.62 3 \$45.09 \$.65 4 \$44.10 \$.70 What are the arithmetic and geometric returns for this stock?

27. 25: Arithmetic vs. geometric averages Year Price Dividend Annual return 0 \$38.16 --- --- 1 \$39.43 \$.60 (\$39.43 - \$38.16 + \$.60) \$38.16 = 4.90% 2 \$38.04 \$.62 (\$38.04 - \$39.43 + \$.62) \$39.43 = -1.95% 3 \$45.09 \$.65 (\$45.09 - \$38.04 + \$.65) \$38.04 = 20.24% 4 \$44.10 \$.70 (\$44.10 - \$45.09 + \$.70) \$45.09 = -0.64%

28. 26: Arithmetic vs. geometric averages Annual returns: 4.90%, -1.95%, 20.24% and -.64%

29. Arithmetic average: good for guess the return of one period: optimistic Geometric average: good for guess the return of long term: pessimistic
