3. Stock A has a volatility of 20%, B has a volatility of 30%, and their correlation coefficient is 50%. They have the same expect returns. Suppose we can buy x share of A, and 1-x share of B. Then what the x should be for us to invest to make our portfolio has the minimum volatility?

The vols add in quadrature, with the caveat that the interference term has the correlation factor in there. So: sig(port)^2 = x^2*sig(A)^2+(1-x)^2*sig(B)^2+2*x*(1-x)*sig(A)*sig(B)*rho(AB) Take the partial with respect to x and set that equal to zero. Solve for x and get: x = 6/7
