Introduction:
A securitys beta may very substantially depending upon whether it is estimated on the
basis of daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly returns of that security.
Basically the betas of securities with smaller market value than the average of the market will
decrease as the return interval is shortened, whereas the betas of securities with a large
market value relative to the market will increase. This suggest that betas measured over
return intervals of arbitrary length will tend to be less risky than truly are, whereas securities
with relatively large market values may appear to be more risky than they truly are.
Securitys historical rate of returns can be used to estimate its systematic risk. Rate of returns
can be calculated as daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis then with the help of those
returns on different time interval betas can be estimated and its variability over time.

Beta Definition:
Page

## A measure of the volatility, or systematic risk, of a security and a portfolio in comparison to

the market as a whole. Beta is used in the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), a model that
calculates the expected return of an asset based on its beta and expected market returns
Beta is calculated using regression analysis, and you can think of beta as the tendency
of a security's returns to respond to swings in the market. A beta of 1 indicates that the
security's price will move with the market. A beta of less than 1 means that the security will be
less volatile than the market. A beta of greater than 1 indicates that the security's price will be
more volatile than the market. For example, if a stock's beta is 1.2, it's theoretically 20% more
volatile than the market.
Many utilities stocks have a beta of less than 1. Conversely, most high-tech, NASDAQ-based
stocks have a beta of greater than 1, offering the possibility of a higher rate of return, but also
posing more risk.
Systematic Risk
Risk is a consideration in every investment decision and, for a stock, risk is quantified by beta.
Fortunately, the widespread availability of published betas on many financial websites
makes the acquisition of this risk metric conveniently available. On the other hand, the
calculation of beta does not include consistent factors, thus making the interpretation of
published betas and the ensuing risk difficult and incomplete.
If you want to know how much systematic risk a particular security, fund or portfolio has, you
can look at its beta, which measures how volatile that investment is compared to the overall
market. A beta of greater than 1 means the investment has more systematic risk than the
market, less than 1 means less systematic risk than the market, and equal to one means the
same systematic risk as the market.
Whereas this type of risk affects a broad range of securities, unsystematic risk affects a very
specific group of securities or an individual security. Unsystematic risk can be mitigated
through diversification.

Introduction of stocks:
Habib Bank Limited (HBL):
HBl (formerly Habib Bank Limited) now referred to as "HBL Pakistan" and headquartered
in Habib Bank Plaza,Karachi, Pakistan, is the largest bank in Pakistan. The bank has a
network of over 1500 branches and over 1000 ATM(S) in Pakistan and 55 branches
worldwide. It has a domestic market share of over 40%. It continues to dominate the
commercial banking sector with a major market share in inward foreign remittances (55%)
and loans to small industries, traders and farmers.
Bank of Punjab (BOP):
The Bank

of

Punjab is

Pakistani

bank

at

BOP

Tower,

Main

Gulberg, Lahore Pakistan. It serves Pakistan and functions as an international bank and is
one of the prominent financial institutions of the country holding AA ratings from PACRA. The
bank was established in 1989, pursuant to The Bank of Punjab Act 1989, and was given the
status of a retail bank in 1994.

## Variability of beta over time

A securitys beta may very substantially depending upon whether it is estimated on the basis
of daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly returns of that security.
Betas are not constant:
A stable beta implies that the systematic risk of a firm does not change; that is to say that the
relationship between the stock and the market is continuous. A company (fund) is like a
living entity that changes through time, bringing in managers with a higher(lower) risk
appetite, developing new products, expanding into new markets, and being exposed to
new regulations and new competition. Consequently, the firm is not static and should not be
expected to behave and perform at a constant measureable level.

Basically the betas of securities with smaller market value than the average of the market will
decrease as the return interval is shortened, whereas the betas of securities with a large
market value relative to the market will increase. This suggest that betas measured over
return intervals of arbitrary length will tend to be less risky than truly are, whereas securities
with relatively large market values may appear to be more risky than they truly are.
Securitys historical rate of returns can be used to estimate its systematic risk. Rate of returns
can be calculated as daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis then with the help of those
returns on different time interval betas can be estimated and its variability over time.
Here in this study we used two different stocks (HBL and BOP) and there returns in different
time intervals like daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly. We used KSE-100 index as market
proxy. We have three-year period july 2011 to june 2014, and estimated betas of Habib Bank
limited and Bank of Panjab on daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly returns.

## Methodologies for Beta calculations:

Different methodologies and formulas used for Beta calculation. Those formulas are as
follows;
Average formula:

## Beta manual calculations (By excel):

Computational formula:

Conceptual formula:
N (sum XY)-sum XY/N (sum X^2)-(sum X)^2
Slop function
Covariance and variance function

Beta Estimation:
Here, betas for the three-year period July 2011 to June 2014 have been estimated using 36
monthly returns, 250 daily returns, 72 fortnightly and 156 weekly returns.

Analysis:
We recognize that high risk stocks should experience either very good or very bad
returns more frequently compared to low risk stocks, i.e. high risk stocks should
cluster in the tails of the cross-sectional return distribution. Building on this intuition,
we test the risk interpretation of the CAPMs beta by examining if high beta stocks
are more likely than low beta stocks to experience either very high or very low
returns. The departure point for our tests is the intuition that risky stocks should
experience very good or very bad returns more frequently compared to low risk
stocks, i.e. risky stocks should concentrate in the tails of the cross-sectional return
distribution. Building on this insight, a test of whether high beta stocks are more risky is
equivalent to testing if high beta stocks tend to experience very high and very low returns
more often than low beta stocks.
BOP betas based on weekly, fortnightly and monthly returns are 1.7600, 1.4107 and 2.4285
whereas the daily beta is 1.722 in 1 st year, as its smaller market value than the average of all
securities outstanding. In 2nd and 3rd year BOP betas on weekly, fortnightly and monthly are
more than its daily beta. And in the case of estimation of HBL on the other hand, weekly,
fortnightly and monthly betas are 0.6536, 0.5767 and o.1071 which are less than its daily beta

0.7265 in 1st year. When the return interval is shortened, the following occurs, securities with a
smaller market value than the average of all securities outstanding (the market) will generally
have decreased beta. Whereas securities with a larger market value than the average of all
securities outstanding will generally have an increasing beta.

## Market value of Shares outstanding:

Market value of shares outstanding is another fact about why betas shift upward or downward
over time. Market value of shares outstanding can also use as a proxy for securitys relative
market thinness to determine the direction of the shift in beta.

The price an asset would fetch in the marketplace. Market value is also commonly
used to refer to the market capitalization of a publicly-traded company, and is obtained
by multiplying the number of its outstanding shares by the current share price. Market
value is easiest to determine for exchange-traded instruments such as stocks and
futures, since their market prices are widely disseminated and easily available, but is a
little more challenging to ascertain for over-the-counter instruments like fixed income
securities.
Number of shares outstanding:

BOP

MVSO of HBL=

8.97*1,466,852,508
= 267,979,284,686.52

MVSO of BOP=

182.34*1,555,113,165

Here, HBL estimation with a large market value of shares outstanding will have a decreasing
beta when the return interval is shortened. On the other hand BOP has small market value of
shares outstanding thats why having increasing beta when return interval is shortened.

Conclusion:
Stock's price variability is important to consider when assessing risk where risk as the
possibility of a stock losing its value as beta has appeal as a proxy for risk. Intuitively, it
makes sense that stock with a price that bounces up and down more than the market
because securities with large market value of shares outstanding will have estimated betas
that are biased upward, whereas securities with small market value of shares outstanding will
have estimated betas that are biased downward considered as market of arbitrary length are
biased so high market values will appear to be more risky as compare to the lower market
values so other way round we can say that it's hard not to think that stock will be riskier than
say a safe-haven utility industry stock with a low beta.
Finally because of temporal cross- correlation between securitys price movements, beta
estimates will generally depend upon the return intervals, implying that betas measured over
return intervals of arbitrary length are biased. In Particular securities with large market value
of shares outstanding will have estimated betas that are biased upward, whereas securities
with small market value of shares outstanding will have estimated betas that are biased
downward. Hence securities with relatively small market values may appear to be less risky
than they truly are, whereas securities with relatively large market values may appear to be
more risky than truly are.
