You have a $ 2 million portfolio consisting of $100,000 investment in each of 20 different stocks. The portfolio has a beta of 1.1. You are considering selling $100,000 worth one stock with a beta of 0.9 and using the proceeds to purchase another stock with a beta of 1.4. What will the portfolio's new beta be after these transactions?

  1. 1/20= 5%
    older stock contribution of risk= 0.9*0.05=0.045
    New stock contribution of risk= 1.4*0.05=0.07
    Now just simply eliminating the effect of older beta and adding the contribution of new beta
    1.1-0.045+0.07=1.125
