Guidance on common questions in regards to this assignment.
1.Where exactly can I find the beta, stock return and S&P return for each company looked at? Use finance.yahoo.com, input the company stock symbol into the search field. On the Statistics tab (fifth tab from the left), in the second column: Trading Information (you may have to scroll down), under Stock Price History, you will find the first three items listed are: beta, stock’s one year return (52-Week change) and one year S&P return (S&P500 52-week change).
2.Are the six companies to be from the same industry or sector? You need to select two companies from three different industries. As a reminder, please discuss each industry’s stocks in separate paragraphs, comparing the stocks to each other and to the S&P500 return, as well as noting observed similarities and differences within the industry. In a final paragraph, discuss the similarities and differences observed between industries and explain your results in terms of: total risk, systematic risk and idiosyncratic risk.
3.The S&P500 52-Week Change is the same for all of my companies. Is this right? The S&P500 52-Week change is NOT industry nor company specific, therefore you will use the SAME change figure throughout your entire analysis.
