Question

You
bought a bond exactly one year ago for $1,004.50. Today, you sold
the bond at a price of $987.40. The bond paid interest
semi-annually at a coupon rate of 6%. What is your holding period
yield on this bond?

Answer #1

Face value of bonds are generally $1,000. We are assuming the same face value

Coupon rate = 6% paid semi- annually

Semi- Annual Interest received on bond

= Face Value x Interest rate x 6 /12 months

= $1,000 x 6% x 6 / 12

= $30 every 6 months

Current Price = $987.40

Purchase Price = $1,004.50

So, Holding Period Return

= (Current Price - Purchase Price + Interest Received ) / Purchase Price x 100

= ( $987.40 - $1,004.50 + $30 + $30 ) / $1,004.50 x 100

= 4.27%

One year ago, you bought a bond at a price of $992.6000.The bond
pays coupons semi-annually, has a coupon rate of 6% per year, a
face value of $1,000 and would mature in 5 years. Today, the bond
just paid its coupon and the yield to maturity is 8%. What is your
holding period return in the past year? (suppose you did not
reinvest coupons)

Suppose you bought a 15-year $1,000 face-value bond for $945 one
year ago. The annual coupon rate is 7% and interest payments are
paid annually. If the price today is $995, the yield to maturity
must have changed from _____________ to ______________.
8.12%; 6.94%
7.12%; 8.11%
7.63%; 7.06%
9.11%; 9.35%
None of the above
