a. Compute the bond's expected rate of return.

b. Determine the value of the bond to you, given your required rate of return.

Answer #1

**Bond Details :**

Par value = $1000

Time to maturity = 10 years

Interest rate = 8% annually

a) **Compute the bond’s expected rate of
return**

The formula is

Expected rate of return = (Interest + Market price - Par value)/ Par value

Interest = 0.08*1000= $80

Market price = $750

Par value = $1000

**Expected rate of return = (80 + 750 - 1000)/ 1000 =
-17%**

b) **Determine the value of the bond to you, given your
required rate of return**

Price of bond = (70/0.14)[1-(1/1.14^{10})] +
$1000/1.14^{10}

**Price of bond = $365.128 + $269.743=
$634.871**

c) **Should you sell the bond or continue to own
it**

As the present value of the bond is less than the par value of the bond, we should sell the bond
