The graded assignment for this week is a beta exercise designed to help you conceptualize what beta represents. The data used to calculate beta is an important factor that is often overlooked in finance textbooks. If you use daily, weekly, monthly, or some other time period to gather data, you will arrive at a different data. Please follow the instructions provided on the Excel spreadsheet below. Each individual should turn in an assignment. Please do not hesitate to ask me for assistance if you have questions or concerns..
