QUESTION 1

An analyst calculates the mean Sharpe ratio of 25 U.S. equity mutual funds for which the population variance is unknown. The sample mean is 0.60 and the sample standard deviation of the ratio is 0.40. The analyst can state with a 90% confidence that the mean Sharpe ratio will not be greater than:

0.70528

0.70544

0.73664

0.73688

QUESTION 2

An analyst would like to identify the 95% confidence interval of returns around the mean for a normally distributed sample of 29 U.S. private equity firms for which population variance is known. What is the reliability factor used to construct the confidence interval?

QUESTION 3

After analyzing the average stock returns of the 500 companies in the S&P 500, you identify that the average returns are 7.05% and that the variance of returns is 0.0025. The population variance of the S&P500 is known and returns are normally distributed. With what confidence level can you ascertain that returns will not be less than 6%.

90% confidence

95% confidence

99% confidence

QUESTION 4

You would like to model the effect of stocks trading volumes (X1) on stock’s return (Yi) but suspect that this effect would differ depending on whether there was a COVID-19 lockdown or not (X2). The most appropriate model to estimate is:

Yi = β0 + β1X1

Yi = β0 + β2X2

Yi = β0 + β1X1 + β2X2

Yi = β0 + β1X1 + β2X2 + β3X1X2

1.5 points

QUESTION 5

You are estimating the following model Yi = β0 + β1X1 + β2X1X2 where X2 is a dummy variable that could take the value 0 or 1. When plotting the model that you are estimating, the value that X2 takes would affect:

The y-intercept of the line plotted to predict the value of Yi

The slope of the line plotted to predict the value of Yi

The y-intercept and slope of the line plotted to predict the value of Yi

The value of X2 will have no effect on the line plotted to predict the value of Yi
