8.4 Define yield to maturity. Why is it important?

Yield to maturity (YTM) is the rate of return earned by investors if they buy a bond

today at its market price and hold it to maturity. It is important because it represents

the opportunity cost to the investor or the discount rate that makes the present value of

the bonds cash flows (i.e., its coupons and its principal) equal to the market price. So,

YTM is also referred to as the going market rate or the appropriate discount rate for a

bonds cash flows.

It is important to understand that any investor who buys a bond and holds it to

maturity will have a realized gain equal to the yield to maturity. If the investor sells

before the maturity date, then realized gain will not be equal to the YTM, but will

only be based on cash flows earned to that point. Similarly, for callable bonds,

investors are guaranteed a gain to the point in time when the bond is first called, but

they cannot be assured of the yield to maturity because the issuer could call the bond

before maturity!

8.5 Define interest rate risk. How can the CFOs manage this risk?

The change in a bond's prices caused by changes in interest rates is called interest rate

risk. In other words, we can measure the interest rate risk to a bonds investor by

measuring the percentage change in the bonds price caused by a 1 percent change in the

market interest rates.

The key to managing interest rate risk is to understand the relationships between

interest rates, bond prices, the coupon rate, and the bonds term to maturity. Portfolio

managers need to understand that as interest rates rise bond prices decline, and it

declines more for low-coupon bonds and longer-term bonds than for the others. In such a

scenario, bond portfolio managers can reduce the size and maturity of their portfolio to

reduce the impact of interest rate increases. When interest rates decline, bond prices

increase and rise more for longer-term bonds and higher coupon bonds. At such times,

CFOs can increase the size and maturity of their portfolios to take advantage of the

inverse relationship between interest rates and bond prices.

8.8 Explain what you would assume the yield curve would look like during economic

expansion and why.

At the beginning of an economic expansion, the yield curve tends to be rather steep as

the rates begin to rise once the demand for capital is beginning to pick up due to

growing economic activity. The yield curve will retain its positive slope during the

economic expansion, which reflects the investors expectations that the economy will

grow in the future and that the inflation rates will also rise in the future.

8.9 An investor holds a 10-year bond paying a coupon of 9 percent. The yield to maturity

of the bond is 7.8 percent. Would you expect the investor to be holding a par-value,

premium, or discount bond? What if the yield to maturity was 10.2 percent? Explain.

Since the bonds coupon of 9 percent is greater than the yield to maturity, the bond

will be a premium bond. As market rates of interest drop below the coupon rate of the 9

percent bond, demand for the bond increases, driving up the price of the bond above face

value.

If the yield to maturity is at 10.2 percent, then the bond is paying a lower coupon

than the going market rate and will be less attractive to investors. The demand for the 9

percent bond will decline, driving its price below the face value. This will be a discount

bond.

Questions and Problems

8.26 Lopez Information Systems is planning to issue 10-year bonds. The going market

yield for such bonds is 8.125 percent. Assume that coupon payments will be made

semiannually. The firm is trying to decide between issuing an 8 percent coupon bond

or a zero coupon bond. The company needs to raise $1 million.

a. What will be the price of an 8 percent coupon bond?

b. How many 8 percent coupon bonds would have to be issued?

c. What will be the price of a zero coupon bonds?

d. How many zero coupon bonds will have to be issued?

LO 1, LO 2

Solution:

a. Years to maturity = n = 10

Coupon rate = C = 8.125%

Semiannual coupon = $1,000 (0.08/2) = $40

Current market rate = i = 8.125%

Answer -$991.55

b. Amount needed to be raised = $1,000,000

Number of bonds sold = $1,000,000 / $991.55 = 1,009

c. Years to maturity = n = 10

Coupon rate = C = 0%

d. At the price of $450.94, the firm needs to raise $1 million. To do so, the firm will

have to issue:

Number of contracts = $1,000,000 / $450.94 = 2,218 contracts

8.27 Showbiz, Inc., has issued eight-year bonds with a coupon of 6.375 percent and

semiannual coupon payments. The markets required rate of return on such bonds is

7.65 percent.

a. What is the market price of these bonds?

b. If the above bond is callable after five years at an 8.5 percent premium on the

face value, what is the expected return on this bond?

LO 2, LO 4

Solution:

a. Years to maturity = n = 8

Coupon rate = C = 6.375%

Semiannual coupon = $1,000 (0.06375/2) = $31.875

Current market rate = i = 7.65%

The firm can sell these bonds at $924.75.

b. Purchase price of bond = $924.75

Years investment held = n = 5

Coupon rate = C = 6.375%

Semiannual coupon = $1,000 (0.06375/2) = $31.875

Frequency of payment = m = 2

Realized yield = i

Call price of bond = CP = $1,000 (1.085) = $1,085.00

To compute the expected return, either the trial-and-error approach or the financial

calculator can be used. Try rates higher than the coupon rate.

Try i = 8%, or i/2 = 4%.
