The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) describes the relationship between the expected return and risk on any asset or portfolio. It is basically used to calculate the stock’s expected stock return. CAPM suggests that a stock’s expected return is equal to the risk-free rate, plus beta multiplied by the market risk premium.
