Question

Consider a bond with annual coupon payments. You purchased the
bond when it was originally

issued. Immediately thereafter, the YTM had changed and remained at
this new level

indefinitely. Today, at the end of year 4 (immediately after the
4th coupon payment), your bond

investment has the following characteristics:

Total Interest (Coupons) = Interest-on-Interest (I2) = Capital Gains = Realized Return (annual) = |
$5,476.75 $1,047.89 $759.06 13.773973% |

Hint: Do not assume any face value or any time to maturity at issue

You must show ALL work – including any calculator keystrokes to
receive credit. Please, find

the following:

a. The annual coupon (in dollars and cents)

b. The new YTM (as a percentage with 3 digits after the decimal
point)

c. The purchase price of the bond (in dollars and cents)

d. The face value of the bond (in dollars and cents)

e. The coupon rate (as a percentage with 3 digits after the decimal
point)

f. The market value of the bond at the end of year 4 (in dollars
and cents)

g. The time to maturity at issue (round to the nearest year)

h. The realized return at the end of year 10 (as a percentage with
3 digits after the decimal

point)

i. The realized yield at the end of year 10 (as a percentage with 3
digits after the decimal

point)

Answer #1

a) Annual Coupons=$5476.75/4=1369.19$

let the coupon rate is 10% so 1000 will be coupon for one year and 369 will be interest on the coupon

b)Realised return-Coupon rate =yield

13.7739-10=3.774

c)Purchase price=10000

d)Selling price of bond-purchase price of bond=capital gain

Sp=759.06+10000

Selling price=10759.06

so the face value is at par.

e)Coupon rate as explained in solution a by trail and error method 10%

f)market value=10759.06

g)4 years

h)face value/coupons yield for year

1369.19+261.97=1631.16

10000/1631.16=6.130%

i)Realized yield

yield to maturity-Gain in principal of bond

3.774%-2.369%

=1.40%

Consider a bond that pays 6% annual coupon on a face value of
$1000 and has 5 years to maturity. Suppose you buy the bond at a
time when its yield to maturity is 10%. Assumer further that
immediately after you buy the bond, the market interest rate YTM
declines to 8%. You hold the bond for two years and sell it at the
end of the second year when YTM is still 8%.
a) Calculate the annualized two year...

Find the duration of a 4% coupon bond making annual coupon
payments if it has 3 years until maturity and has a yield to
maturity of 4%. What is the duration if the yield to maturity is
6%? Note: The face value of the bond is $1,000. (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answers to 3 decimal
places.)
Duration 4% YTM:
6% YTM:

On the issue date, you bought a 30-year maturity, 8% semi-annual
coupon bond. The bond then sold at YTM of 7%. Now, five years
later, the similar bond sells at YTM of 6%. If you hold the bond
now, what is your realized rate of return for the 5-year holding
period? (do not solve using excel)

A $10,000 face value 12% coupon corporate bond matures on March
15, 2030. You purchase the
bond on July 17, 2019 (M1) at a quoted price of 99.475. Please,
compute the bond’s YTM, its
invoice price as of the settlement date (M3), and its dirty price
on the purchase date (M1). State
the yield as a percentage with 6 digits after the decimal point and
the prices in dollars and cents.

Bond A is a 6 % coupon bond with annual payment and 1 year to
maturity. The bond face value is 1,000 and the bond is currently
selling at $980.70. Investors expect the inflation rate to be 3%
during the year, but at the end of the year, the inflation rate
turned out to be 2%.
What is the nominal interest rate on this bond? Calculate the
nominal interest rate
What is the expected real interest rate on this bond?...

A two-year bond with par value $1,000 making annual coupon
payments of $91 is priced at $1,000.
a. What is the yield to maturity of the bond?
(Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)
YTM =
b. What will be the realized compound yield to
maturity if the one-year interest rate next year turns out to be
(a) 7.1%, (b) 9.1%, (c) 11.1%?(Do not round intermediate
calculations. Round your answers to 2 decimal
places.)
(a)
(b)
(c)

Now assume that you purchase a 5-year, $1,000 face
bond with a 3.5% coupon, paid annually, currently selling with a 4%
YTM (yield to maturity). Immediately after you purchase
the bond, the reinvestment rate in the market drops to
3%. What is your realized yield on your bond
investment?

Suppose that you purchased a A rated $5,000 annual coupon bond
with an 6.7% coupon rate and a 11-year maturity at par value. The
current rate on 11-year US treasuries is 3%. Two years later, you
sell the bond, and for a yield of 7.922%, what was your capital
gain (+) or capital loss (-) in dollars and cents? (make your
answer positive for a gain, negative for a loss)

Suppose that you purchased a A rated $5,000 annual coupon bond
with an 6.1% coupon rate and a 8-year maturity at par value. The
current rate on 8-year US treasuries is 3%. Two years later, you
sell the bond, and for a yield of 4.787%, what was your capital
gain (+) or capital loss (-) in dollars and cents? (make your
answer positive for a gain, negative for a loss)

A newly issued 10-year maturity, 10% coupon bond making annual
coupon payments is sold to the public at a price of $933. What will
be an investor’s taxable income from the bond over the coming year?
The bond will not be sold at the end of the year. The bond is
treated as an original issue discount bond. (Round your
answer to 2 decimal places.)
