    Answer and Explanation:

    As we know that

    Reward to risk ratio = (Expected return of stock - Risk free rate of return) : Beta of stock

    For stock Y, it is

    Reward to Risk ratio

    = (11.1% - 2.4%) : 1.2

    = 7.25 %

    For stock Z, it is

    Reward to Risk ratio

    = (7.85% - 2.4%) : 0.80

    = 6.8125%

    And,

    SML reward to Risk ratio should always market Risk premium i. e 7.20%

    As we can see that

    Stock Y has higher reward to Risk ratio i. e 7.25% than SML i. e 7.20%, so it is underpriced or undervalued.

    And,

    Stock Z has lower reward to Risk ratio i. e 6.8125% than SML i. e 7.20%, so it is overpriced or overvalued.
