Related to my MBA / Financial Management class, I need help with this question
Select a portfolio of common stocks in five companies whose stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Base your selection of stocks on your own personal willingness to take risks. Look up the beta of each company. Using equal weights, compute the portfolio beta, showing your work. Discuss how the portfolio beta compares to your own willingness to take risks. Discuss whether you would rather hold an individual stock or a portfolio of stocks.
