Bond Val
Basic Bond Valuation
Bond price (PV annuity + PV principal)
PV=PMT*(1-1/(1+R)^n)/R PV=FV/(1+R)^n
Example Coupon rate 8 FV 100
Yield 8.00% Yield 8.00%
Periods 10 Periods 10
PV 53.7 PV 46.32
Bond price with semi-annual payments
PV=(PMT/m)*(1-1/(1+R/m)^n*m)/(R/m) PV=FV/(1+R/m)^n*m

4 The YTM on a bond is the interest rate you earn on your investment if interest rates don't change. If you actually
sell the bond before it matures, your realized return is known as the holding period yield (HPY).
a. Suppose that today you buy a GE 9 percent coupon bond making annual payments of \$1,200. The bond has
10 years to maturity. What rate of return do you expect to earn on your investment?
b. Two years from now, the YTM on your bond has declined by 2.5 percent, and you decide to sell. What
price will your bond sell for? What is the HPY on your investment? Compare this to the YTM when you
first bought the bond. Why are they different?

8 As a portfolio manager at Putnam Management, you bought a 10-year, 8.25% semiannual-pay bond at issuance
2 1/2 years ago. At that time the yield to maturity was 8.23%; it's now fallen to 7.10%. How much has the bond's
modified duration changed?

9 You are the risk manager at a new savings bank, Lostyur Trust. Mr Edgar Lostyur, sole shareholder, has been
told by the regulatory authorities to provide them with the institution's modified duration in order to evaluate its
sensitivity to interest rate fluctuations. The Prime rate is 8.25%.
You find that the initial balance sheet of the savings bank looks like this:
Assets:
Cash on deposit 2 million face value
3-month loans at Prime + 2% 13 million face value
4-year, 6% s.a. Treasury bonds yielding 6.35% 20 million face value
7-year, 7.90% s.a. IBM bonds yielding 8.23% 6 million face value
Liabilities:
6-month CDs at 4% 3 million face value
5-year 9% s.a. bonds 33 million face value
Equity: 100,000 shares
What can you tell the regulators the bank's modified duration of assets is?
Of liabilities? And what is the net modified duration?
Based on the net duration, what would be the effect on net worth of a 10bp increase in rates?
