Which company would we expect to have a higher beta, an industrials company or an internet company?

Answer hidden.


It's impossible to know for sure because we have very few details about the companies.

But if all we had to go off of were the companies' industry, we would expect the internet company to have a higher beta than the industrials company because generally newer internet companies are viewed as "riskier" than industrials companies that may have been around for multiple decades.
