Refer to Exhibit 4 in Chapter 3 of your text to complete the following:Referring to Exhibit 4, compute the annual percentage change in net income per common share-diluted (second numerical line from the bottom) for 1998-1999, 1999-2000, and 2000-2001.
Also in Exhibit 4, compute net income/net revenue (sales) for each of the four years. Begin with 1998.
What is the major reason for the change in the answer for Question 2 between 2000 and 2001?To answer this question for each of the two years, take the ratio of the major income statement accounts to net revenues (sales).

Answer the questions attached

I have attached a word document with the question, so read the questions carefully and answer them clearly and detailed answers.
The authors of our two texts, Reilly, Brown, Leeds and Malkiel have stated that a prime task of portfolio management is to blend the various financial assets together to provide a portfolio that is best suited to meet the longer-term return goals of the investor at the least risk. With respect to Portfolio Management, Capital Market Theory and Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) answer the following questions:
1. Explain the concept of Markowitz Diversification. Be certain in your
answer to explain the basis for this diversification and identify what type
of risk is being diversified out of the portfolio.
2. Based on your answer in (1.) above answer the following questions:
How does the Naïve Diversification approach differ from the
How does the Simple Diversification approach differ from the
Markowitz Diversification approach?
Markowitz Diversification approach?
3. In developing the Markowitz Diversification Model, the Correlation Coefficient
(r) was very important. Explain what variables we are correlating and how we measure the benefits of portfolio diversification by using the Correlation Coefficient.
4. Define what is meant by the term Efficient Portfolio.
5. Graphically show the Efficient Frontier, Sharpe’s Capital Market Line
(CML), Portfolio M, a Borrowing Portfolio and a Lending Portfolio.
Also indicate where a timid risk averse investor would select a portfolio.
Be certain to label all relevant variables and parts of your graph.
6. In 5. above explain what we mean by Portfolio M, explain also a Borrowing Portfolio and a Lending Portfolio.
7. Explain the Investment Decision versus the Financing Decision for the investor.
8. More than 50 years have passed since the initial work was presented
by Harry Markowitz, the Father of Modern Portfolio Theory. Markowitz
developed the concept of the Efficient Frontier and more importantly this
led to the later work by Wm. Sharpe on the Capital Market Line (CML).
Specifically, briefly discuss how Sharpe’s theoretical ideas, as you have
shown graphically in (5.) above, have evolved into applications, as described by Dr. Malkiel to construct, manage, and adjust portfolio holdings in the real world.
9. Briefly describe Capital Market Theory and how it relates to Modern
Portfolio Theory (MPT).
