1. Explain the difference between portfolio risk and stand-alone risk.
2. Briefly explain why you selected each stock and how this investment portfolio would have less risk than selecting just one stock.
3. How does risk aversion affect a stock’s required rate of return?
4. Explain the distinction between a stock’s price and its intrinsic value.
Your case study should be at least two pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You are required to cite
