    Boom .25 .30 .40 .25
    Good .40 .10 .15 .10
    Poor .25 .00 -.05 -.10
    Bust .10 -.25 -.15 -.20
    Your portfolio is invested 40% in stock R, 35% in Stock S, and 25% in Stock T. What is the expected return of the portfolio? What is the standard deviation of the return?

    6. Given the following information for Acme Corporation, find the weighted average cost of capital. Assume the company's tax rate is 3 5%.
