Suppose that you purchased a Baa rated \$1000 annual coupon bond with an 7.8% coupon rate and a 19-year maturity at par value. The current rate on 19-year US treasuries is 3%. Two years later, you look in the newspaper, and find that the yield on comparable debt is 7.080%, how much is the bond currently worth?

Face/Par Value of bond = \$1000

Annual Coupon Bond = \$1000*7.8%

= \$78

No of years to maturity from now (n) = 19 years - 2 years = 17

Current Yield on comparable Bonds(YTM) = 7.080%

Calculating the Market price of Bond:-

Price = \$757.330 + \$312.578

Price = \$1069.91

So, the bond currently worth is \$1069.91
