Answer #1

a)

Bond Sam:

If rates suddenly increase by 4%, the new YTM will be = 7% + 2% =9%

Then current price of bond is:

=PV(9%/2,6*2,70/2,1000)

=908.81

Change in price =908.81-1000/1000 = **-9.12%**

Bond Dave:

If rates suddenly increase by 4%, the new YTM will be = 7% + 2% =9%

Then current price of bond is:

=PV(9%/2,19*2,70/2,1000)

=819.50

Change in price =819.50-1000/1000 = **-18.05%**

b)

Bond Sam:

If rates suddenly fall by 2%, the new YTM will be = 7% - 2% =5%

Then current price of bond is:

=PV(5%/2,6*2,70/2,1000)

=1102.58

Change in price =1102.58-1000/1000 = **10.26%**

Bond Dave:

Then the current price of the bond is:

=PV(5%/2,19*2,70/2,1000)

=1243.49

Change in price =1243.59-1000/1000 = **24.35%**
