Question

Lourdes Corporation's 12% coupon rate, semiannual payment, $1,000 par value bonds, which mature in 10 years, are callable 6 years from today at $1,050. They sell at a price of $1,306.57, and the yield curve is flat. Assume that interest rates are expected to remain at their current level.

What is the best estimate of these bonds' remaining life? Round your answer to two decimal places.

If Lourdes plans to raise additional capital and wants to use debt financing, what coupon rate would it have to set in order to issue new bonds at par?

Since interest rates have risen since the bond was first issued, the coupon rate should be set at a rate above the current coupon rate.

Since the bonds are selling at a premium, the coupon rate should be set at the going rate, which is the YTC.

Since the bonds are selling at a premium, the coupon rate should be set at the going rate, which is the YTM.

Since Lourdes wishes to issue new bonds at par value, the coupon rate set should be the same as that on the existing bonds. Since Lourdes wishes to issue new bonds at par value, the coupon rate set should be the same as the current yield on the existing bonds.

What is their nominal yield to maturity? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places

What is their nominal yield to call? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Answer #1

1) a. As the bonds are trading at a premium, it means the interest rates have declined. Hence, bonds are likely to be called and its remaining life = 6 years

b. Since the bonds are selling at a premium, the coupon rate should be YTM.

2) Bond Yield can be calculated using I/Y function

N = 14 x 2 = 28, PMT = 11% x 1000 / 2 = 55, PV = -1,418.87, FV = 1,000

=> Compute I/Y = 3.21% (semi-annual)

Annualized YTM = 3.21% x 2 = 6.42%

Similarly,

N = 7 x 2 = 14, PMT = 55, PV = -1418.87, FV = 1244

=> Annualized YTM = 6.33%
