9.

You own a bond with the following features:

Face value of \$1000,

Coupon rate of 3% (annual)

15 years to maturity.

The bond is callable after 3 years with the call price of \$1,052.

If the market interest rate is 4.89% in 3 years when the bond can be called, if the firm calls the bond, how much will it save or lose by calling the bond?

If there would be a loss, state your answer as a negative (e.g., -37.51)

1. Using the Dividend discount model,

P = (3.69 * ( 1+ 5.24%) ) / (8.24% - 5.24%) = 129.45

Price at period 1 (P1) = Dividend at period 2 / (r -g) = (3.69 * (1+5.24%)^2 ) /(8.24 %- 5.24%) = 136.23

Dividend yield is calculated using Dividend in trailing twelve month upon current stock price.

Dividend yield = Dividend at period 1 / price at period 1 = (3.69 * 1.0524 )/ 136.23= 2.85%
