2. Price and yield move in opposite directions; if interest rates rise, the price of the bond will fall. This is because the fixed coupon payments determined by the fixed coupon rate are not as valuable when interest rates risehence, the price of the bond decreases.

4.

Here we need to find the YTM of a bond. The equation for the bond price is: P = 884.50 = 100(PVIFAR%,9) + 1,000(PVIFR%,9) Notice the equation cannot be solved directly for R. Using a spreadsheet, a financial calculator, or trial and error, we find: R = YTM = 12.18%

If you are using trial and error to find the YTM of the bond, you might be wondering how to pick an interest rate to start the process. First, we know the YTM has to be higher than the coupon rate since the bond is a discount bond. That still leaves a lot of interest rates to check. One way to get a starting

point is to use the following equation, which will give you an approximation of the YTM: Approximate YTM = [Annual interest payment + (Price difference from par / Years to maturity)] / [(Price + Par value) / 2] Solving for this problem, we get: Approximate YTM = [100 + (115.50 / 9)] / [(884.50 + 1,000) / 2] = 11.97% This is not the exact YTM, but it is close, and it will give you a place to start.

5.

Here we need to find the coupon rate of the bond. All we need to do is to set up the bond pricing equation and solve for the coupon payment as follows: P = $870 = C(PVIFA6.8%,16) + $1,000(PVIF6.8%,16) Solving for the coupon payment, we get: C = $54.42 The coupon payment is the coupon rate times par value. Using this relationship, we get: Coupon rate = $54.42 / $1,000 = 5.44%

7.

Here we are finding the YTM of a semiannual coupon bond. The bond price equation is: P = $950 = $43(PVIFAR%,20) + $1,000(PVIFR%,20) Since we cannot solve the equation directly for R, using a spreadsheet, a financial calculator, or trial and error, we find: R = 4.69% Since the coupon payments are semiannual, this is the semiannual interest rate. The YTM is the APR of the bond, so: YTM = 2 4.69% = 9.38%

24.

a. The bond price is the present value of the cash flows from a bond. The YTM is the interest rate used in valuing the cash flows from a bond. b. If the coupon rate is higher than the required return on a bond, the bond will sell at a premium,

24.

since it provides periodic income in the form of coupon payments in excess of that required by investors on other similar bonds. If the coupon rate is lower than the required return on a bond, the bond will sell at a discount since it provides insufficient coupon payments compared to that required by investors on other similar bonds. For premium bonds, the coupon rate exceeds the YTM; for discount bonds, the YTM exceeds the coupon rate, and for bonds selling at par, the YTM is equal to the coupon rate.

24.

c. Current yield is defined as the annual coupon payment divided by the current bond price. For premium bonds, the current yield exceeds the YTM, for discount bonds the current yield is less than the YTM, and for bonds selling at par value, the current yield is equal to the YTM. In all cases, the current yield plus the expected one-period capital gains yield of the bond must be equal to the required return.

28.

To find the capital gains yield and the current yield, we need to find the price of the bond. The current price of Bond P and the price of Bond P in one year is: P: P0 = $120(PVIFA8%,5) + $1,000(PVIF8%,5) = $1,159.71 P1 = $120(PVIFA8%,4) + $1,000(PVIF8%,4) = $1,132.49 Current yield = $120 / $1,159.71 = 10.35% The capital gains yield is: Capital gains yield = (New price Original price) / Original price Capital gains yield = ($1,132.49 1,159.71) / $1,159.71 = 2.35%

28.

The current price of Bond D and the price of Bond D in one year is: D: P0 = $80(PVIFA8%,5) + $1,000(PVIF8%,5) = $1,000 P1 = $80(PVIFA8%,4) + $1,000(PVIF8%,4) = $1,000 Current yield = $80 / $1,000 = 8% Capital gains yield = ($1,000 1,000) / $1,000 = +0%

28.

All else held constant, premium bonds pay high current income while having price depreciation as maturity nears; discount bonds do not pay high current income but have price appreciation as maturity nears. For either bond, the total return is still 8%, but this return is distributed differently between current income and capital gains.
