Paul Kinnaird, Student (University), United States CAPM and Beta Example The Capital Asset Pricing Model for stock A would be written: RoR = Rate of Return RFR = Risk Free Return RoR for stock A = RFR + Beta(RoR for market - RFR) The difference between the market RoR and the RFR is the market risk premium. Therefore: RoR for A = 6 + 0.8(8.5) = 12.8%.  abdollah, Student (Other), Iran CAPM and Beta In fact, the expected market return is: 8.5 + 6 = 14.5% And the expected return of stock A is: 12.8%. Muqeem Razvi CAPM, Calculating Expected Return If B=0.8 Rf=6% Rm-Rf=8.5, Then E(r) will be 12.8%, Market risk premium is equal to Rm (Return on market portfolio) minus Rf (Risk free rate), that will be RPm = Rm - Rf RPm = 14.5 - 6 RPm = 8.5 , then E(r)i = Rf + (Rm - Rf)B E(r)i = 6 + (14.5 - 6)0.8 E(r)i = 12.8%.
