PLEASE Help me i'm so stuck on this problem

  • Investing ( pease help) -

    A portfolio beta is the weighted sum of the individual betas.

    For a given portfolio beta of 1.12, and since the 20 constituent stocks are worth $5000 each, they have equal weights.

    By exchanging one stock with beta of 0.9 for one with beta=1.75 the new portfolio beta is
    (20*1.12-0.9+1.75)/20
    = 1.1625
    =1.16
