Answer #1

a) Purchase Price = FV / (1 + r)^n = $100 / (1 + 6%)^30 = $17.41

Sell Price = 100 / (1 + 6%)^25 = $23.30

Rate of return = (23.30 / 17.41)^(1/5) - 1 = 6%

b) Sell Price = 100 / 1.07^25 = $18.42

Rate of return = (18.42 / 17.41)^(1/5) - 1 = 1.14%

c) Sell Price = 100 / 1.05^25 = $29.53

Rate of return = (29.53 / 17.41)^(1/5) - 1 = 11.14%

d) No. There are interest rate risk when you invest in bond markets, which will impact returns on bond. Hence, the realized returns would be different than expected if interest rates change over a period of time.

You bought a 10-year zero-coupon bond with a face value of
$1,000 and a yield to maturity of 2.7% (EAR). You keep the bond for
5 years before selling it. The price of the bond today is P 0 = F (
1 + r ) T = 1,000 1.027 10 = 766.12
If the yield to maturity is still 2.7% when you sell the bond at
the end of year-5, what is your personal ANNUAL rate of return?

You bought a 10-year
zero-coupon bond with a face value of $1,000 and a yield to
maturity of 3.4% (EAR). You keep the bond for 5 years before
selling it.
The price of the bond
today is P0=F(1+r)T=1,0001.03410=P0=F(1+r)T=1,0001.03410= 715.8
If the yield to
maturity is still 3.4% when you sell the bond at the end of year-5,
what is your personal annual rate of return?
