14​-year,

​\$1,000

par value bonds pay

8

percent interest annually. The market price of the bonds is

​\$1,100

and the​ market's required yield to maturity on a​ comparable-risk bond is

5

percent.

nothing​%

​(Round to two decimal​ places.)

Face Value = \$1,000
Current Price = \$1,100

Annual Coupon Rate = 8.00%
Annual Coupon = 8.00% * \$1,000
Annual Coupon = \$80

Time to Maturity = 14 years

Let Annual YTM be i%

\$1,100 = \$80 * PVIFA(i%, 14) + \$1,000 * PVIF(i%, 14)

Using financial calculator:
N = 14
PV = -1100
PMT = 80
FV = 1000

I = 6.87%

Annual YTM = 6.87%

Face Value = \$1,000
Annual Coupon = \$80
Time to Maturity = 14 years
Comparable Risk Bond Return = 5.00%

Value of Bond = \$80 * PVIFA(5.00%, 14) + \$1,000 * PVIF(5.00%, 14)
Value of Bond = \$80 * (1 - (1/1.05)^14) / 0.05 + \$1,000 / 1.05^14
Value of Bond = \$1,296.96

You should purchase this bond as its current price is lower than the value of bond at required rate of return.
