Expected return over the benchmark, Risk Management

The Investment Committee is big on active management, and believes that there are areas/pockets of inefficiencies in the market. Knowing that you have taken Finance 455 at X-University, the Committee asks that you look into constructing an equity portfolio benchmarked to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). They would like for you to make an equity portfolio that can be expected to create at least 2% of alpha (above the DJIA) with a tracking error budget of 4% (or stated differently, an Information Ratio of 0.50).

Based on that information, and with the Excel Spreadsheet given (showing historical return data for the DJIA component stocks), design a portfolio that can yield a 2% enhance in expected return over the benchmark (alpha), with a maximum of 4% tracking error (Information Ratio at least 0.50).
