Answer #1

From the given information,

Bond price, PV = ?

Coupon, PMT = 0.14*1000/2 = 70

Term, N = 9*2 - 1 = 17

Face value, FV = 1000

YTM, R = 0.08/2 = 0.04

Using excel function, PV = PV(R,N,PMT,FV)

PV(0.04,17,-70,-1000) = 1364.97

Bond selling price = $1364.97

Return = (Selling price - Buying price + Interest)/Buying price = (1364.97-1379.75+70)/1364.97 = 0.0405 = 4.05%

b.

From the given information,

Bond price, PV = ?

Coupon, PMT = 0.14*1000/2 = 70

Term, N = 9*2 - 1 = 17

Face value, FV = 1000

YTM, R = 0.075/2 = 0.0375

Using excel function, PV = PV(R,N,PMT,FV)

PV(0.0375,17,-70,-1000) = 1403.16

Bond selling price = $1403.16

Return = (Selling price - Buying price + Interest)/Buying price = (1403.16-1379.75+70)/1364.97 = 0.0684 = 6.84%

Two years ago, you purchased a bond for $1036.67. The bond had
two years to maturity, a coupon rate of 8%, paid annually, and a
face value of $1,000. Each year, you reinvested all coupon interest
at the prevailing reinvestment rate shown in the table below. Today
is the bond's maturity date. What is your realized compound yield
on the bond?

Suppose you purchase a 8-year, 6% semi-annual coupon bond for
89.153. Immediately after you purchase the bond, the yield for
equivalently risk bonds decreases by 100 basis points. However,
instead of holding the bond until maturity, you plan to hold the
bond for 3 years and then sell it. All coupons will be reinvested
at the prevailing yield on equivalently risky bonds. What will be
your return on this investment in this scenario? Round your answer
to three decimal places.

You just bought a newly issued bond which has a face value of
$1,000 and pays its coupon once annually. Its coupon rate is 5%,

Do you expect the bond price to change in the future when the
yield stays at 8%? Why or why not? Explain. (No calculation is
necessary.)
