What is Bond ?

A long-term debt instrument in which a borrower agrees to make payments of principal and interest, on specific dates, to the bond holders. Bonds are issued when companies want to borrow smaller amounts of money from numerous lenders. Buying a bond means you are lending out your money

Sample of Bond

(RM) Coupon interest (periodically)

bond

Firm A
Capital

Bondholders
Receive interest payments until the term ends

(RM) Par Value (at maturity date)

Bond Characteristics

Formula
Present Value of Bond = Present value annuity of interest payments + Present value of principal repayment

or
Present Value of Bond

= I (PVA) + P (PV)
k%n k%n

KEY FEATURES OF BONDS

I and k should be devided by 2 or 4 n should times 2 or 4

I K

= Interest payment / coupon payment = Market interest rate / required rate of return on the bond

N
P

= No. of years to maturity

= Principal Payment / Par or maturity value Usually RM 1000

EXAMPLE
Assume that you purchased a bond with 15 years remaining to maturity with 15% coupon rate. The interest payment is paid annually and also assume that par value is RM 1000. If the required rate of return on bonds of this risk and maturity is 15%, what will the bond sell for?

What would be the bonds value after one year if the required rate of return were down to 10% or up to 20% respectively?

EQUATION 1
Value of Bond = 150 (PVA) + 1000 (PV)
10%, 14 10%, 14

= 150 (7.367) + 1000 (0.263) = 1150.05 + 263 = RM 1413.05 (at premium)

EQUATION 2
Value of Bond = 150 (PVA) + 1000 (PV)
20%, 14 10%, 14

= 150 (4.611) + 1000 (0.078) = 691.65 + 78 = RM 769.65 (at discount)

YIELD-TO-MATURITY (YTM)
It is another name for : Rate of return Internal rate of return Market interest rate Discount rate of return It is the required yield expected by the investors There are 3 methods to calculate the YTM:Trial and Error YTM formula Calculator

TRIAL AND ERROR

Example: You were offered a 10yr, 15% coupon rate, RM1000 par value bond at a price of RM960. What rate of interest would you have earn if you have bought this bond and held it to maturity? Solution:

n = 10, I = 15%, P = 1000, Bond Price = 960, k = ?

Value of Bond = I (P V A k%n ) + P (P V k%n) 960 = 15% (1000) (P V A k% 10 ) + 1000 (PV k% 10)

1. Type of bond: Discount Bond 2. Features: Market yield (market interest) is greater than Coupon rate. 3. k > I
Begin searching with k = 15% (because the value of I = 15%) and higher than 15%. So now we assume the value of k as 15% and 16%. At k = 15%, Bond Price = RM999.85 At k = 16%, Bond Price = RM951.95
k = 15%
RM999.85

k=?
RM960

k = 16
RM951.95

YTM FORMULA
I+ YTM = M- Value of Bond N
