99% ....... 17.88%
100% ..... 18%
b. What is the tradeoff between investing in ABC and DEF (i.e., if we increase the weight in DEF by 1 percent, what is the change in the expected return on the portfolio)?
c. Your boss has just looked at your results and disagrees. He says the tradeoff between DEF and ABC is negative and, therefore, your results are wrong. Explain to your boss how you are both correct.
