What is the return of a market capitalization weighted and evenly weighted index of two stocks with market prices of $30 and $50 that increase to $40 and $60 where the market capitalizations of each is $4 billion and $6 billion respectively at the beginning of the period?

Please show work.

No of shares will be calculated by formula = Market
capitalisation/Price per share

By calculating number of shares, ending Market capitalisation will
be calculated by = No of shares* Market price per share

Beg.Price per share Market
value No of shares

Stock A 30 4000000000
133333333.3

Stock B 50 6000000000
120000000

Total 80 10000000000

End. Price per share Market value= (no of
shares*Price per share) No of shares

Stock A 40 5333333333

Stock B 60 7200000000

Total 100 12533333333

Market weighted return is return calculated on the basis of Market
weights.

Formula =(Ending capitalisation-Opening capitalisation)/opening
capitalisation

(12533333333 -10000000000)/ 10000000000

= 0.2533333333 or 25.33%

Equally weighted index return is sum of return of all stocks of
index divided by no. of stocks

Return of individual stock formula = (End price - Beginning
price)/Beginning price

Return of A = (40-30)/30= 33.33%

Return of B = (60-50)/50= 20.00%

equally weightex return = Total of stock Return/No of
stocks

(33.33333%+20%)/2= 26.67%

So, Market weighted index Return is 25.33% and equal weighted index
return over period is 26.67%

1. We have a market capitalization weighted index of 20 stocks.
The total market capitalization of the index is $1 billion. Today,
18 of the stocks finished unchanged – that is, their return was
0.0%. The 19th stock was up 1% and has a market capitalization of
$100 million. The 20th stock was down 1% and has a market
capitalization of $10 million. What was the change in the
index?

capitalization weighted stock index consisting of the stocks shown
in the following table is less than 19.

price today
Stock A 350,000 $23 $23
Stock B 405,000 $43 $41
Stock C 553,000 $56 $58
