rate of return? (Note: nominal rates of return can be positive or
negative.) (Use the exact method rather than the approximation
method here.) (*Round to 100th of a percent and enter as a
percentage, e.g. 12.34% as 12.34.*)

1C) What is the most we should pay for a bond with a par value
of $1000, coupon rate of 7.4% paid semi-annually, and a remaining
life of 19 years? The bond is rated BBB, with a yield to maturity
of 6.7%. (*Round your answer to the nearest penny.*)

ANSWER

Answer #1

1A)

Yield to maturity = (Future value / initial value)^1/n - 1

Yield to maturity = (1000 / 594.06)^1/13 - 1

Yield to maturity = (1.683332)^1/13 - 1

Yield to maturity = 1.0409 - 1

**Yield to maturity = 0.0409 or 4.09%**

1B)

Real rate = [(1 + nominal rate) / (1 + inflation rate)] - 1

0.044 = [(1 + nominal rate) / (1 + 0.016)] - 1

1.044 = [(1 + nominal rate) /1.016]

1.060704 = 1 + nominal rate

**Nominal rate = 0.0607 or 6.07**%

1C)

Number of periods = 19 * 2 = 38

Semi annual YTM = 6.7% / 2 = 3.35%

Semi annual coupon = (7.4% of 1000) / 2 = 37

Price of bond = Coupon * [1 - 1 / (1 + r)^n] / r + FV / (1 + r)^n

Price of bond = 37 * [1 - 1 / (1 + 0.0335)^38] / 0.0335 + 1000 / (1 + 0.0335)^38

Price of bond = 37 * [1 - 0.285892] / 0.0335 + 285.891816

Price of bond = 37 * 21.316662 + 285.891816

**Price of bond = $1,074.61**
