Required rate of Return of Stock A
r A = r RF + (r M – r RF ) β A
= 10% + (12% - 10%) 0.5
= 11%

Required rate of Return of Stock B
r B = r RF + (r M – r RF ) β B
= 10% + (13% - 10%) 1.5
= 14.5%

Required rate of Return of Stock C
r c = r RF + (r M – r RF ) β C
= 10% + (12.5%-10%) 1
= 12.5%

Fair Price of Stock A
Po* = DIV1 / [(r RF + (r M – r RF) A) - g]
= 5/ [(10% + (12%-10%) 0.5)-4%]
5/7%=R s 71.43
Fair Price of Stock B
Po* = DIV1 / [(r RF + (r M – r RF) B) - g]
= 3/ [(10% + (13% - 10%) 1.5) – 6%
= 3/ 8.5%= R s 35.29
Fair Price of Stock C
Po* = DIV1 / [(r RF + (r M – r RF) C) - g]
= 6/ [10% + (12.5%-10%) 1) – 2%
= 6/10.5%= R s.57.14

Stock A is Undervalued as the fair price is more than the market price.
Stock B is Overvalued as the fair price is less than market price.
Stock C is Undervalued as the fair price is more than the market price.

The Stock A and Stock C should be used to construct the portfolio because of two reasons as the beta of Stock A and Stock C is less than Stock B. The required rate of return of Stock A is less than its market rate of return and required rate of return of Stock C is equal to its market rate of return while the required rate of return of Stock B is more than its market rate of return.  2
