#### Homework Answers

Answer #1
 1.a) The price of the bonds = 1000/1.063^5+65*(1.063^5-1)/(0.063*1.063^5) = \$    1,008.36 b) If the bonds have to sell at par, the coupon rate should be equal to the YTM. So the YTM should be 6.5% for which the rating should be 'A'. 2. The price of the bonds = 1000/1.02925^18+35*(1.02925^18-1)/(0.02925*1.02925^5) = \$    1,299.86 3. The most that can be paid is the PV of the expected dividend+PV of the year end price = (0.56+45.50)/1.068 = \$          43.13 4. Using the constant dividend growth model, the maximum price that can be paid for the stock = 2.16/(0.10-0.04) = \$          36.00 5. The price of the stock = 0.50/(0.15/4) = \$          13.33
