The risk-free rate is 2%.Next year, when we expect the market to provide a zero return, I expect the firm to outperform the market and provide a return of 4% on equity.”a). If the CAPM is correct, what % of the risk of AAA is unique risk?b). What return would you expect from AAA next year?c). Is the CFO correct in her assessment, too pessimistic, too optimistic?
