Assume you wish to evaluate the risk and return behaviors
Assume you wish to evaluate the risk and return behaviors associated with various combinations of assets V and W under 3 assumed degrees of correlation: perfect positive, uncorrelated, and perfect negative. The following average return and risk values were calculated for these assets.
a. If the returns of assets V and W are perfectly positively correlated (correlation coefficient = +1), describe the range of
(1) Return
(2) Risk associated with all possible portfolio combinations.
b. If the returns of assets V and W are uncorrelated (correlation coefficient = 0), describe the approximate range of
(1) Return
(2) Risk associated with all possible portfolio combinations.
c. If the returns of assets V and W are perfectly negatively correlated (correlation coefficient = -1), describe the range of
(1) Return
(2) Risk associated with all possible portfolio combinations.
