Question

The yield-to-maturity (YTM) on one-year bond with zero coupon and face value $ 1000 is 5 %. The YTM on two-year bond with 5 % coupon paid annually and face value $ 1000 is 6 %. (i) What are the current prices of these bonds? (ii) Find Macaulay durations of these bonds. Consider a third bond which is a zero coupon two-year bond with face value $ 1000. (iii) What must be the price of the third bond so that the Law of One Price holds. Explain where you use the LOOP. (iv) Find the yield-to-maturity on the thrid bond with the price from part (iii).

Answer #1

YTM on one year zero coupon bond is 5% and FV = $1000

YTM = 6% on two year bond ; Coupon =5%; FV = $1000

i) Price of zero coupon bond = 1000 / (1 + 0.05) = $952.38

Price of two year bond = 50/1.06 +1050 / (1.06)^{2} =
47.16 + 934.49 = $981.65

ii) Macaulay duration of zero coupon bonds = 1 (since the duration of zero coupon bond is equal to its time to maturity)

Macaulay duration of coupon bond = [1*50/1.06 + 2*1050 /
(1.06)^{2}] / 981.65 = 1.95

iii) A third bond which is a two year zero coupon bond with FV = $1000 and law of one price holds when arbitrage opportunities exist. We consider YTM as 5% similar to zero coupon bond in part (i) because of LOOP.

so, the price of this bond P = $952.38

iv) YTM = 1000 / ( 1 + YTM)^{2} = 952.38

YTM = 2.47%

The price of one-year bond (A) with zero coupon and face value $
1000 is $ 961.5. The price of two-year bond (B) with zero coupon
and face value $ 1000 is $ 907. Consider a third bond (C), a
two-year bond with $ 100 coupon paid annually and face value of $
1000.
(i) What must be the price of bond C so that the Law of One
Price holds. Explain where you use LOOP.
(ii) Suppose that the...

There are two bonds in a portfolio. One is a 5-year zero-coupon
bond with a face value of $5,000, the other is a 10-year
zero-coupon bond with a face value of $10,000. The Macaulay
Duration of the portfolio is 7.89, the Modified Duration of the
portfolio is 7.3015. If the price of the 10-year bond is $3,999,
what is the answer that is closest to the yield to maturity of the
5-year bond

Company B just issued 10-year zero-coupon bonds. The face value
of the bond is €1000.
If those bonds sell for $553 what those bonds yield to maturity
(YTM) is? Express your answer as percent.If the YTM doesn’t change
what will be the price of those bonds next year? If this is the
only bond issue that Company B has outstanding what is the after
tax cost of debt of Company B? The tax rate is 30%.

does not change? Answers say 4.01% can someone please explain this
and show their working? Thank you.
