Re = expected return

Rm  = expected return for the general market

Rf = risk free rate

CAPM model: Re = Rf +(Rm-Rf)* beta

Given:

(Rm-Rf)= 7.4%

Rm=11%

Rf=11-7.4 =3.6%

The appropriate expected return of Tasaco is  =3.6 +7.4%*.848= 9.8752% =9.9%

The appropriate expected return of LBM is =3.6 +7.4%*.677= 8.6%

The appropriate expected return of Exxos is=3.6+7.4%*.506=7.3%
