Question

Suppose an investor can purchase a 6-year 9% coupon bond with a
par value of $100 that

pays interest semi-annually. The yield to maturity for this bond is
10% on a bond-equivalent yield basis.

What is the coupon interest, capital gain/loss and reinvestment
income associated with this bond over

its 6-year life? Assume that the reinvestment rate is equal to the
yield to maturity.

Answer #1

Price of the bond needs to be calculated first. The price of the bond can be calculated using the PV function of excel. Inputs are:

- Rate = YTM per period = Semi annual YTM = 10%/2 = 5%
- Nper = number of half years in 6years = 2 x 6 = 12
- PMT = semi annual coupon = 9%/2 x 100 = 4.50
- FV = par value = 100

Hence, the price of the bond today = -PV (Rate, Nper, PMT, FV) = - PV (5%, 12, 4.50, 100) = 95.57

The coupon interest associated with this bond over its 6-year
life = PMT x Nper = 4.50 x 12 = $ **54.00**

The capital gain/loss associated with this bond over its 6-year
life = Par value - Price of the bond today = 100 - 95.57 = $
**4.43**

The reinvestment income associated with this bond over its
6-year life = FV of all the semi annul coupon payments - sum of all
the coupons paid = FV (Rate, Nper, PMT, PV) - 54 = FV (5%, 12,
4.50, 0) - 54 = 71.63 - 54 = $ **17.63**

Suppose an investor can purchase a 20 year, 5% coupon bond that
pays interest semi annually and the price of the bond is 97%. The
Par Amount is $100. The yield to maturity is 5.95%. Assume the
investor can reinvest the coupon payments at an annual rate of 3%.
The bond is only held for 5 years and sold at 89%. Compute the
following:

Apple issued a 6 year bond with a par value of $2,000.
The annual coupon rate is 2.4% and it pays semi-annually. The yield
to maturity is 3.15%.
a) What is the purchase price for
this bond?
b) What is the current yield for
this bond?

One year ago, an investor purchased a 10-year, $1,000
par value, 8% semiannual coupon bond with an 8% yield to maturity.
Now, one year later, interest rates remain unchanged at 8%. If the
investor sells the bond today (immediately after receiving the
second coupon payment, and with no transaction costs), he will
have:
A. a capital gain of $80.
B. a capital loss of $80.
C. no capital gain or loss.

An investor buys a 9-year, 6.9% annual coupon bond at par
($100). After the purchase and before the first coupon is received,
interest rates increase to 8.9% (assume a flat spot rate curve).
The investor sells the bond after 7 years (right after receiving
the 7th coupon payment). What is this investor's realized annual
return in these 7 years?
Assume annual compounding, and that interest rates remain at
8.9% over the entire holding period.

14. An investor purchases a just issued 30-year, 10.500%
semi-annual coupon bond at 104.079 percent of par value and sells
it after 10 years. The bond’s yield to maturity is 9.584% at time
of sale, and rises to 10.100% immediately after the purchase but
before the first coupon is received. All coupons are reinvested to
maturity at the new yield to maturity. Show the sources of return
