Kitty4400 -- As Campbell Harvey points out in the article linked, "The beta of the portfolio is the weighted average of the individual asset betas where the weights are the portfolio weights." Duke University "Asset Pricing and Risk Management," (Harvey, Nov. 27, 1995) http://www.duke.edu/~charvey/Classes/ba350/riskman/riskman.htm So, Portfolio ? = 0.90 * (Other stocks ?) + .10 * (Stock 1 ?) Or, 1.12 = 0.90 * OS? + .10 * 1.0 ==> OS? = 1.1333 Now we can figure the new portfolio ?: New portfolio ? = 0.90 * 1.1333 + 0.10 * 1.50 = 1.17 Google search strategy: ?change in portfolio? beta calculation Best regards, Omnivorous-GA
