Question

Investor A has just sold a ten-year $10,000 corporate bond to Investor B for $8,500. Investor A purchased the bond four years ago for $9,500. The bond coupon rate is 8 percent per year paid annually and Investor A has just received the dividend for year 4.

a) Draw the cash flow diagram for Investor A

b) Calculate the Rate of Return for Investor A

c) Draw the cash flow diagram for Investor B

d) Investor B has a MARR of 10% per year compounded semi-annually. Will the return on the corporate bond meet the Investor B’s MARR?

Please do not use excel.

Answer #1

a)

b) We find the rate of return using the financial calculator

Feed N = 4

PV = -9500

PMT = 800

FV = 8500

Compute i/Y = 6.02%

c) Total life of bond is 10 years, but 4 years have already passed. B will hold the bond for 6 years

We find the rate of return using the financial calculator

Feed N = 6

PV = -8500

PMT = 800

FV = 10000

Compute i/Y = 11.61%

d) MARR on annual compounding = (1+5%)^2 -1 = 10.25%

As expected return is 11.61%, bond will meet the investor B's MARR.

(a) Consider a 14-year, 9.5%
corporate bond with face value $10,000. Assume that the bond pays
semi-annual coupons. Compute the fair value of the bond today if
the nominal yield-to-maturity is 11% compounded semi-annually.
(b) Consider a 11-year,
corporate bond with face value $1,000 that pays semi-annual coupon.
With the nominal yield-to-maturity equal to 10%, the bond is
selling at $802.5550. Find the coupon rate for this bond. Assume
that the market is in equilibrium so that the fair value...

"An investor just purchased a 5-year $1,000 par value bond. The

Please explain the process thoroughly.

Consider a 14-year, 9.5% corporate bond with face value $10,000.

A five-year corporate bond with a face value of $10,000 pays
interest at a coupon rate of 5.0%. The required return for

sell if the interest is paid semi-annually?

The market price of a bond is $900 for a 10-year bond that pays
interest semi-annually at a coupon rate of 6% per annum. What is
