Suppose two securities A and B have a covariance COVAB = 20 and are combined to form a portfolio. The expected returns and standard deviations of the two securities are as follows:
rA = 10%, QA = 3%, rB = 12%, QB = 4%
Finally, $30,000 is the total investment in the two securities and $21,000 is invested in security B. What is the expected portfolio return rP? What is the standard deviation of portfolio return Qp?
This question belongs to finance and discusses about calculation of expected portfolio return and standard deviation of portfolio return.
