Objectives: To calculate the Beta and its Significance.
Data Collection: – Data for Equity & Nifty has been downloaded from NSE site for the period from 01st Jan,2022 to 31st Dec 2022.The data was edited and manipulated to get Friday closing price, weekly returns were found out of Nifty was considered as” X” and weekly report of equity were considered as “Y”.

Data Analysis: – Demand Y= 0.570- -0.012 Nifty ret x+e
(t-stat= -0.355)
N=50, R^2= 0.002, F= 0.126
t-stat of b is shown in bracket is (-0.355).
The P-value for this is 0.723 which is more than 0.01 meaning ‘b’ is not statistically significant at 1% level.
N = 50
R^2 = 0.002 which means 2% of Y is explained by X and balanced 98% is unexplained i.e., error.
F= 0.126
P value for this is 0.723 which is more than 0.01 which means that overall model is not statistically significant at 1% level.
The above equation tells us about the relationship between Nifty and Equity returns. Negative (-) sign shows inverse relationship which means if market goes up share price goes up.

Conclusion: – As Beta is more than 1 it is good for investment, if Beta is less than 1 it is not good for investment if Nifty rises.
