Consider a bond issued by XYZ corporation with a maturity date of 2020 and a stated coupon rate of 7% and a face value of Rs.1000. In 2000, with 20 years left to maturity, investors owning the bonds are requiring a 7.5% rate of return. What is the value of the bond? Rs. 949.00 Alaskan airlines bonds are maturing in 14 years that pay Rs.68.75 per year (but disbursed semi-annually) and a face value of Rs.1000. If the Investors required rate is 7.2%, what is the Value of this bond? Rs. 972.00

Yield to Maturity (YTM)
Rate of return investors earn if they buy the bond at P0 and hold it until maturity.

YTM is the discount rate that equates the PV of a bond’s cash flows with its price.

Interest Rate Risk Price Risk  Change in price due to changes in interest rates  Long-term bonds have more price risk than short-term bonds Reinvestment Rate Risk  Uncertainty concerning rates at which cash flows can be reinvested  Short-term bonds have more reinvestment rate risk than longterm bonds .

What is reinvestment rate risk? The risk that CFs will have to be reinvested in the future at lower rates. reducing income. You buy a 1-year bond with a YTM of 10%. Illustration: Suppose you just won 500. You’ll invest the money and live off the interest. .000 playing the lottery.

Long-term bonds: High interest rate risk. low reinvestment rate risk. high reinvestment rate risk. Nothing is riskless! . Short-term bonds: Low interest rate risk.

True or False: “All 10-year bonds have the same price and reinvestment rate risk.” False! Low coupon bonds have less reinvestment rate risk but more price risk than high coupon bonds. .

will be more sensitive to interest rate changes than bonds with earlier cash flows.Relationship with pattern of Cash Flow The sensitivity of a bond’s value to changing interest rates depends not only on the time to maturity. Bonds with cash flows coming later. But. but also on the pattern of cash flows A change in interest rates always has a greater impact on the PV of later cash flows than on earlier cash flows. How to measure this? .

Duration A measure of how responsive a bond’s price is to changing interest rates – estimate of price volatility. the longer the duration Calculation is based on the weighted average of the present values for all cash flows . Greater the relative percentage change in a bond price in response to a given percentage change in interest rate.

Macaulay Duration Duration = sum (t * Ct / (1+Y)^t)/P0 t – year the cash flow is to be received Ct – Cash flow to be recd in year t Y – Bond holders RRR P0 – the bond’s PV For all bonds. whose duration is equal to maturity . duration is shorter than maturity except zero coupon bonds.

In the above table. the percentage loss in a bond's value equals the bond's duration The same holds true for appreciation in a bond's price when interest rates fall . bonds with higher durations had a bigger gain when interest rates fell the rule of thumb for interest rate risk associated with bonds: When interest rates rise one percent. bonds with higher durations had a bigger loss when interest rates rose Similarly.

Modified Duration Mod. .Duration = Macaulay Duration / (1+yield/k)) K = number of compounding periods per year.

duration does a good job. the convex nature of the price/yield curve becomes apparent. When large changes in yield occur. the relationship is not linear – for small changes in yield. A measure of the curvature in the relationship between bond prices and bond yields . But.Convexity Bond prices and yields are inversely related.

.Immunization The investment of the assets in such a way that the existing business is immune to a general change in the rate of interest. Immunization is accomplished by calculating the duration of the promised outflows and then investing in a portfolio of bonds that has identical duration.

Zero-Coupon Bonds Make no periodic interest payments (coupon rate = 0%) The entire yield-to-maturity comes from the difference between the purchase price and the par value Cannot sell for more than par value Sometimes called zeroes. or deep discount bonds Valuation of Zeros .

Upward-Sloping Yield Curve .

Downward-Sloping Yield Curve .

. Information on expected future short term rates can be implied from yield curve. Three major theories are proposed to explain the observed yield curve. The yield curve is a graph that displays the relationship between yield and maturity.Overview of Term Structure The relationship between yield to maturity and maturity.

an upward-sloping yield curve reflects expectations of higher future inflation and interest rates. the very strong relationship between inflation and interest rates supports this theory. • In general. .Theories of Term Structure Expectations Theory • This theory suggest that the shape of the yield curve reflects investors expectations about the future direction of inflation and interest rates. • Therefore.

Expectations Theory Observed long-term rate is a function of today’s short-term rate and expected future short-term rates. Long-term and short-term securities are perfect substitutes. . Forward rates that are calculated from the yield on long-term securities are market consensus expected future short-term rates.

Theories of Term Structure Liquidity Preference Theory • This theory contends that long term interest rates tend to be higher than short term rates for two reasons: – long-term securities are perceived to be riskier than short-term securities – borrowers are generally willing to pay more for longterm funds because they can lock in at a rate for a longer period of time and avoid the need to roll over the debt. .

Investors will demand a premium for the risk associated with long-term bonds. Forward rates contain a liquidity premium and are not equal to expected future shortterm rates. . The yield curve has an upward bias built into the long-term rates because of the risk premium.Liquidity Premium Theory Long-term bonds are more risky.

• As a result.Theories of Term Structure Market Segmentation Theory • This theory suggests that the market for debt at any point in time is segmented on the basis of maturity. the shape of the yield curve will depend on the supply and demand for a given maturity at a given point in time. .

Trading in the distinct segments determines the various rates. Observed rates are not directly influenced by expectations.and long-term bonds are traded in distinct markets.Market Segmentation and Preferred Habitat Short. . Preferred Habitat:   Modification of market segmentation Investors will switch out of preferred maturity segments if premiums are adequate.

Factors Affecting Bond Yields Key Issue: What factors affect observed bond yields? Real rate of interest Expected future inflation Interest rate risk Default risk premium Liquidity premium .
