At the risk of redundancy (e.g., see the screenshot below for Problem Set 4 on Section 2’s Canvas site and section “8. 2. Late Work” on page 3 of the course syllabus), let me remind everyone that Finance 4335 problem sets must be submitted in PDF format via Canvas; paper copies or file formats other than PDF are not accepted. Furthermore, given how simple it is to merge multiple pages into a single PDF document (see the instructions provided here), I also expect students to submit their completed problem sets as single PDF documents.
Let me know whether any of you have any questions about the Finance 4335 Problem Set submission policy.
Problem Set 2 consists of two problems. The first problem requires calculating expected value, standard deviation, and correlation, and using this information as inputs into determining expected returns and standard deviations for 2-asset portfolios. The second problem involves using the standard normal probability distribution to calculate the probabilities of earning various levels of return by investing in risky securities and portfolios; see pp. 13-19 of the http://fin4335.garven.com/fall2023/lecture4.pdf lecture note for coverage of that topic.
