1. Just-Buss Corporation has issued a bond that has a 10% coupon rate, payable quarterly. The bonds mature in 10 years, have a face value of \$1,000 and a yield to maturity of 12%. What is the price of the bond?

What must be the price of a \$10,000 bond with a 12% coupon rate, semi-annual coupons, and five years to maturity if it has a yield to maturity of 10%?

a)

Coupon = (0.1 * 1,000) / 4 = 25

Number of periods = 10 * 4 = 40

Rate = 12% / 4 = 3%

Price of bond = Coupon * [1 - 1 / (1 + r)n] / r + FV / (1 + r)n

Price of bond = 25 * [1 - 1 / (1 + 0.03)40] / 0.03 + 1000 / (1 + 0.03)40

Price of bond = 25 * 23.114772 + 306.556841

Price of bond = \$884.43

a)

Coupon = (0.12 * 10,000) / 2 = 600

Number of periods = 5 * 2 = 10

Rate = 10% / 2 = 5%

Price of bond = Coupon * [1 - 1 / (1 + r)n] / r + FV / (1 + r)n

Price of bond = 600 * [1 - 1 / (1 + 0.05)10] / 0.05 + 1000 / (1 + 0.05)10

Price of bond = 600 * 7.721735 + 6,139.132535

Price of bond = \$10,772.17
