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 |
