a. What is the systematic risk of the stock return?
b. The firm announced that its market share had unexpectedly increased from 23 percent to 27 percent. Investors know from past experience that the stock return will increase by .45 percent for every 1 percent increase in its market share.
What is the unsystematic risk of the stock?
c. What is the total return on this stock?
