    Suppose stock returns can be explained by the following three factor model:
    Ri = Rf + B1(F1) + B2(F2) - B3(F3)

    Assume there is no firm-specific risk. The information for each stock is presented here:

    Beta1 (B1) Beta2 (B2) Beta3 (B3)
    Stock A 1.45 0.80 0.05
    Stock B 0.73 1.25 -0.20

    The risk premiums for the factors are 5.3 percent, 3.9 percent, and 4.2 percent, respectively. If you create a portfolio with 60 percent invested in stock A and the remainder in stock B, and the risk-free rate is 2 percent, what is the expected return of your portfolio?
