### How is CAPM used to price an asset once it has been used to derive the assets expected return?

As I understand it (correct me if I'm wrong) the theoretical price of an asset should be the present value of all future cash-flows that it is expected to yield, discounted at the risk-free rate. I am ...

### Asset's Beta and CAPM

The CAPM model calculates the expected return of an asset i, given its beta (i.e., beta of that asset i). Mathematically, CAPM states that: $$E(R_i) = R_f + \beta_i [E(R_m) - R_f]$$ Meaning that the ...
