CFA Practice Question

HR Co. has a beta equal to 1.2. It is considering investing in an average-risk project. The risk-free rate is equal to 7 percent, and the market expected return is 12 percent. What is the cost of capital of the project?

A. 7 percent
B. 12 percent
C. 13 percent.
Correct Answer: C

Since the project is an average-risk project, its beta equals the beta of the firm. Then the cost of capital can be calculated from the SML equation: 7 + 1.2 (12 - 7) = 13 percent.
