If Janet sold the bond today for $927.53, what rate of return would she have earned for the past year? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

______ %

Answer #1

Coupon = 10% of 1000 = 100

Last year price = Coupon * [1 - 1 / (1 + r)^n]/ r + FV / (1 + r)^n

Last year price = 100 * [1 - 1 / (1 + 0.1127)^25] / 0.1127 + 1000 / (1 + 0.1127)^25

Lat year price = 100 * [1 - 0.06927] / 0.1127 + 69.270416

Lat year price = 100 * 8.25847 + 69.270416

Last year price = 895.117429

Rate of return = [(Ending value + coupon - beginning value) / beginning value] * 100

Rate of return = [(927.53 + 100 - 895.117429) / 895.117429] * 100

**Rate of return = 14.79%**
