Description

BUS 405 Week 5

The student will construct a well-diversified portfolio using an initial investment stake of $50,000 (the portfolio should use 95% of the fund, but they may not use more than $50,000). The student may include stocks, common or preferred; bonds, corporate or U.S. Treasury bonds; mutual funds; and futures contract or options. The student will use the closing prices from the first day of the class to determine the price of each issue. Only whole lots of any issues may be acquired, that is no less than 100 shares of common or preferred stock; no less than 5 corporate bonds or $10,000 for U.S. Treasury Bonds; no fewer than the minimum required investment for any mutual fund; and no fewer than 5 contracts for any option or futures position. The settlement date will be the first day of Week 3. The student does not have to use all of the above mentioned securities, but they must use more than one class. Transaction costs are ignored in the creation of the portfolio.

Discussion Questions

Complete Concept Question 7 from Chapter 14: The town of South Park is planning a bond issue in six months and Kenny, the town treasurer, is worried that interest rates may rise, thereby reducing the value of the bond issue. Should Kenny buy or sell Treasury bond futures contracts to hedge the impending bond issue? Remember to complete all parts of the question and support your answers with examples from the text and other resources.

Complete Concept Question 12 from Chapter 15: Recall the options strategies of a protective put and covered call discussed in the text. Suppose you have sold short some shares of stock. Discuss analogous option strategies and how you would implement them. (Hint: Theyre called protective calls and covered puts.)
