Sample Question #141 (finance – portfolio theory)
How many stocks should you own in a stock portfolio so the expected portfolio risk is zero?
Only the system risks left.
30 OR 8?
The task is impossible, since you cannot construct a portfolio with zero expected risk: there’s always systematic risk no matter what you do, i.e., the market can crash as a whole. Even so-called risk-neutral portfolios often ignore (intentionally or otherwise) risks such as liquidity risk and tax policy risk, and these risks simply can never be eliminated.
