Can you pls explain below solution

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

.The correct answer is 0.762

Dear Manish,

Correlation = Covariance/Sigma(x)*Sigma(y)


Correlation = 0.002765/0.066*0.048 = 0.8727

and we know that, Coeff of determination is square of correlation,


Hope it helps :)
