Question

1. Suppose that you own a $1,000-face-value coupon bond which had a 10% coupon rate and 10 years to maturity. Moreover, its current price is $1,000.

A.What is the yield to maturity?

B.Now suppose that the investors expect the interest rate will rise to 13% in next year. What will be the bond price next year?

C.Calculate thecurrent yield,the expected rateof capital gain(2pts),and the expected rate of return if you have to sell this bond next year.

Answer #1

**Answer(a): YTM = [C + (F-P) / n] / (F+P) /
2**

Given: C = 1000*10% = $100, F = $1000, P = $1000, n=10 years

Putting all the values in the formula, we get:

**YTM = 10%**

**Answer(b):** When interest rate =13%, Bond
price:

**Bond price = C * [[(1-(1/(1+r) ^{n}] / r ]+ F /
(1+r)^{n}**

Given: C = $100, r = 13%, F = $1000, n = 10 years

Putting these values in the formula, we get:

**Bond price = $837.21**

**Answer(c):** Current Yield = Annual coupon / Bond
price

Current Yield: 100/837.21 = **11.94%**

Suppose you own following bond portfolio

You bought a 10-year zero-coupon bond with a face value of
$1,000 and a yield to maturity of 2.7% (EAR). You keep the bond for
5 years before selling it. The price of the bond today is P 0 = F (
1 + r ) T = 1,000 1.027 10 = 766.12
If the yield to maturity is still 2.7% when you sell the bond at
the end of year-5, what is your personal ANNUAL rate of return?

You bought a 10-year
zero-coupon bond with a face value of $1,000 and a yield to
maturity of 3.4% (EAR). You keep the bond for 5 years before
selling it.
The price of the bond
today is P0=F(1+r)T=1,0001.03410=P0=F(1+r)T=1,0001.03410= 715.8
If the yield to
maturity is still 3.4% when you sell the bond at the end of year-5,
what is your personal annual rate of return?

Consider a corporate bond with the face value of $1,000, the
