QUESTION 4. (5 points) The volatility of an asset’s return can be broken into diversifiable (i.e., unsystematic or firm-specific) and non-diversifiable (i.e., systematic) components. Investors who hold the asset should be compensated only for the non-diversifiable risk, which is measured by the “beta” of the asset. A stock that has a zero beta has no systematic risk and its expected rate of return should equal the risk free rate. Suppose that you have two different stocks: • Sys Vol, which has a beta of 1.00 and 100% of its volatility is non-diversifiable. Idio Vol, which is developing a new cure for cancer, has a zero beta because 100% of its volatility is firm specific and thus diversifiable. •

All the other data above remain the same as in (A). In particular, both stocks are currently priced at $50 a share.
