Answer #1

Answer **: Calculation of Current Yield = (Coupon / Market
Price ) *100**

Coupon = $1,000 * 6.6%

= 66

Semi annual Coupon = 66 / 2 = 33

Current Market Price = 1000 * 87.8%

= $878

Current Yield = (33 / 878) * 100

= 3.75854 (semi annual)

**= 7.52% (Annual)**

**Calculation of Yield to Maturity using Financial
Calculator**

**= Rate(nper,pmt,pv,fv)**

where nper =11*2 = 22

pmt = semiannual coupon i.e 33

pv = current market Price = - 878

fv= face value = $1000

=Rate(22,33,-878,1000)

**=4.16% or 8.32%**

**Calculation of Effective Yield**

Effective yield = {1+ (i/n)n} - 1

where i = Coupon rate i.e.6.6% or 0.066

n = number of compounding period i.e 2

Effective Yield = {1 + (0.066 / 2)2} - 1

= {1.033}2 - 1

= 1.067089 - 1

**= 0.067089 or 6.71%**
