Postby saichitale1994 » Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:20 am

You regress the returns of a global industrial company's stock against the returns for the MSCI EAFE index and determine the following information:
Rstock = 0.04 + 1.2X + e ;
scompany stock =6.6%,
sTMSCI EAFE = 4.8%,
covariance of returns = 0.002765.
The coefficient of determination for the regression equation is closest to:
Choose one answer.
a. 0.873
b. 1.200
c. 0.762
d. 0.040

R^2= Coefficient of determination
R = Covariance /Standard deviation of x * Standard deviation of y
R = 0.002765/(0.048) * (0.066)
R = 0.872790404
R^2 = (0.872790404)^2
R^2 = 0.761763089
R^2 = 0.762
