The researchers worked out CAPM by observing the below nature of financial assets:
“Most stocks go down when interest rates go up, but some go down a lot more”
Is it correct ?
Thanks for your comment 🙂

Yes – that is certainly correct.
When interest rates go up share prices go down, and vice versa.
The whole basis of CAPM is that the more risky a share is, the more its share price will fluctuate.

An inspirer and an engager, these are the three characteristics that best describe you sir! Thank you for being one of the few great teachers out there. May you inspire others to achieve the greatness you have.

Thank you for the lecture.
Can the systematic risk be diversified by investing in many different economies ie in various countries?
September 6, 2016 at 5:55 am
Yes – potentially it can (although with globalisation different countries are tending to move in the same way, more and more).
It is a good point to make in the answer to a written question if you get the chance (but you would not be expected to deal with in calculation questions).

I have never seen a topic one used to consider mysterious rendered so powerless and elementary. Prof, the lecture is crytstal clear and the delivery excellent!

watching ur lectures is like watching a classic david lean movie: the delivery and the message of the dialogue is, simply put, terrific!

Is it true that if the B=0.8 then it means that it’s 20% less Risky then the Market, So the Premium we want will be 20% less then the Market(i.e 8%) that’s why in Example No.2 we Subtract 20% then the Market Premium(i.e 8%)
Ex= 20% of 8 is 1.6
The Premium we want will be 6.4%
April 23, 2015 at 9:41 am
Yes – that is what I say in the lecture and what we arrive at using the formula 🙂

if beta= 2 it means that investemnt is 2 time more risky than the market value is it right ?
September 2, 2015 at 2:53 pm
It is two times as risky as the market i.e. the stock exchange as a whole.

Hi, May I know for chapter 20 Example 4 why must 1/0.13 not 0.13 at df@10% there ?
March 30, 2015 at 7:32 am
Firstly the required return is 6% + 1.4 x (11% – 6%) = 13%. (I don’t know where you have got 10% from).
Secondly, since we are discounting a perpetuity, the discount factor is 1/r. So in this case we multiply by 1/0.13
(If you are unsure about perpetuities then watch the earlier lecture on investment appraisal methods)

I think he got the 10% from the answers to the examples in the notes where it states df @ 10%… PV @ 10%… Whilst it is clear that you have not used these, they confused me also. Can you confirm that this is an error? Many thanks,
February 17, 2016 at 7:00 am
Yes – it is just a typing error. I will have it corrected.
The workings are correct, and more importantly the lecture working through the example is correct.

Thank you for the lecture..F9 here i come..im ready, thanks to open tuition

I know you’ve shown us how to calculate Beta and you said that the examiner is not likely to ask us to calculate Beta but I was told by my workplace mentor that if beta is not given, then make a note to the examiner that I am assuming Beta is 1 and continue as such… Will this cost me any marks?
November 16, 2013 at 5:13 pm
You will either be given beta, or you will be asked to find beta by using the formula backwards (although this is not so likely).
You certainly will not be asked to calculate beta from other information – that is not in the syllabus for F9.
However – and this applies to all questions – if for any reason you cannot find a figure you need (probably because it is always harder in the exam with time pressure and panicking) then do invent a figure so you can still prove that you know what to do with it.
You will lose marks, but nowhere near as many marks as you would have lost if you just gave up on the question.

I completely agree! – I was going to comment the same thing! Mr John always says sorry, I have to talk! I find it amusing when he discusses things, he removes my doubts and makes things clearer.
