Objective:

To calculate the beta of Dabur Industries and its significance

Data Collection:

Data of Dabur Industries from 01-01-2022 to 31-12-2022 was downloaded from the NSE website.
• Friday’s weekly closing prices have been found out.
• Weekly Return have been calculated with the formula of
(Y2-Y1)/Y1*100
• The Weekly Return of Equity has been regressed on the Weekly Return of Nifty

Data Analysis:

Weekly Return of Nifty
• t-stat = 1.632516
• R2 = 0.01089
• F = 2.665109
• N = 245

The above equation tells us about the relationship between the Weekly Return of Dabur Industries & Weekly Return of Nifty 50.

• The number of Observations is 245 and the t-stat is 1.632516
• The p-value is .4.39, which is more than 0.05, which means that b is statistically insignificant at 5%. Even if it is more than 0.01, b is statistically insignificant at 1%.
• R2 is 0.01089, which means that X (nifty) explains 1.089% of Y, and the balance of 27.80% is an error. Error is due to the variables, which are not in the model.
• F is 2.6651, the P value for which is .4.39> 0.01, which means overall the model is statistically significant.

Conclusion:

Since b = 0.22894676 is less than 1, it is statistically insignificant.
Dabur Industries is not a good option for investment because for every increase in nifty, there will be a decrease in the equity of Dabur Industries.
