SOLUTION IDEA:


there are two cases to discuss,
Actual risk is higher for which class of common stockholders.
Actual risk is lower for which class of common stockholders.

---------------------------------------------------------



Risk
1. uncertainty about a projects future profitability.
2. it can be measured by sigma Npv, sigma irr and beta.
3. risk of the project increase the firms and stockholders risk.
There are Three type of risk.
Stand alone risk-Eaziest measurment, intyuitive approach.
Corporate risk-mainly relates to creditors, cutomers, supprliers & Employees.
Market or beta risk-Theoretically best

---------------------------------------------------------




Read this statement out
Standalone risk measures the dangers associated with a single facet of a company's operations or by holding a specific asset. In portfolio management, standalone risk measures the undiversified risk (Systematic Risk) of an individual asset. For a company, standalone risk allows them to determine a project's risk as if it were operating as an independent entity.

What i can perceive so far from the Case is, The risk would be higher for those common stock holders, who just invest in a single stock or in a particular section of the company. As they put all their investments in a single section and entire return on investment is now dependent on the performance of that specific project. If that project couldn't perform well, because of any reason, their investment would return nothing.
Elaborate in your own words a little more.

Definition of 'Standalone Risk'

The risk associated with a single operating unit of a company or asset. Standalone involves the risks created by a specific division or project, which would not exist if operations in that area were to cease.

---------------------------------------------------------



RISK
The chance that an investments 's actual return  will be different than expected. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment.

---------------------------------------------------------



The risk is high if the project is a big one project and there are few stockholders. Each one of the stockholders will invest huge amount hence the risk will be high.
The risk is not high if the project is a small one project and there are more stockholders. Each one of the stockholders will invest little amount hence the risk will not be high.


i think, two classes of share holders are preference share holders and ordinary shareholders, n less risk for preference shareholders bcoz they received fix dividend regardless of profit or loss and higher for ordinary they received according to P/L.

I think the risk will be higher for those stockholders who have not diversified their investment. and the risk will be lower for those stockholders who have diversified their investment
