. Select two stocks that have prices available for the last five years. (You may find it more interesting if you select one stock that is relatively risky and another that is less risky.) Each stock must have traded continuously during the 5-year period. Select a proxy for “the market” (I recommend using the Standard & Poor Index, ticker symbol: ^GSPC, as the market proxy but you can choose another proxy that reflects a well-diversified portfolio that approximates the market). Obtain weekly and monthly prices for the stocks and weekly and monthly values for the market proxy for the last five years.
2. Calculate the weekly and monthly returns on the two stocks and on the market proxy.
3. Look up the beta for the two stocks on a financial reporting site such as: Bloomberg, yahoo finance, google finance, market watch, Reuters, etc. You may find it interesting to check the beta on another site as well.
