    A recent paper examined a Security Market Line analysis of eight Blue Chip stocks. The analysis determined the beta for each firm, the required return for stocks with that beta, and the currently expected return for that stock as follows:

    Firm Beta Required Return Currently Expected Return
    1 0.9 15.5% 13.4%
    2 1.2 18.3% 20.3%
    3 1.1 17.1% 15.5%
    4 0.8 14.4% 12.6%
    5 1.2 18.3% 21.3%
    6 0.85 14.7% 14.7%
    7 1.0 16.2% 17.8%
    8 0.95 15.9% 16.2%

    On the basis of this data are any of these stocks overvalued, fairly valued, or undervalued? Outline the scenario that will bring each security's return into equilibrium.
