Answer #1

28 a) Bond Price can be calculated using PV function

N = 5 x 2 = 10, PMT = 4% x 1000 / 2 = 20, FV = 1000, I/Y = 3%/2 = 1.5%

=> Compute PV = $1,046.11 is the bond price.

b) HPR = (Current Price + Coupon) / Old Price - 1 = (1046.11 + 20 x 2) / 1000 - 1 = 8.61%

29) a) N = 4 x 2 = 8, PMT = 6% x 1000 / 2 = 30, FV = 1000, I/Y = 10%/2 = 5% => Compute PV = $870.74 is the bond price of 4 year maturity

b) N = 10 x 2 = 20, PMT = 30, FV = 1000, I/Y = 5% => Compute PV = $750.76 is price of 10 year maturity.

c) Bonds are selling at discount as their current price are below the par value of $1000.

d) The bond with 4 year maturity has a higher selling price because it has lower maturity than the other bond.
