C. negative 0.77 %

D. negative 0.76 %

E. plus 0.68 %

Answer #1

**Answer is negative
0.76%**

Face Value = $1,000

Annual Coupon Rate = 6.2%

Annual Coupon = 6.2% * $1,000

Annual Coupon = $62

Time to Maturity = 9 years

Annual YTM = 4.92%

Current Price, P0 = $1,091.31

Next Year Price, P1 = $62 * PVIFA(4.92%, 8) + $1,000 *
PVIF(4.92%, 8)

Next Year Price, P1 = $62 * (1 - (1/1.0492)^8) / 0.0492 + $1,000 /
1.0492^8

Next Year Price, P1 = $1,083.00

Capital Gain Yield = (P1 - P0) / P0

Capital Gain Yield = ($1,083.00 - $1,091.31) / $1,091.31

Capital Gain Yield = -0.0076

Capital Gain Yield = -0.76%
