Question

A 5-year Treasury bond has a 4.2% yield. A 10-year Treasury bond
yields 6.7%, and a 10-year corporate bond yields 9.6%. The market
expects that inflation will average 2.7% over the next 10 years
(IP_{10} = 2.7%). Assume that there is no maturity risk
premium (MRP = 0) and that the annual real risk-free rate, r*, will
remain constant over the next 10 years. (Hint: Remember that the
default risk premium and the liquidity premium are zero for
Treasury securities: DRP = LP = 0.) A 5-year corporate bond has the
same default risk premium and liquidity premium as the 10-year
corporate bond described. The data has been collected in the

1. The real risk-free rate is 2.6%. Inflation
is expected to be 2.15% this year, 4.15% next year, and 2.65%
thereafter. The maturity risk premium is estimated to be 0.05 × (t
- 1)%, where t = number of years to maturity. What is the
yield on a 7-year Treasury note? Do not round your intermediate
calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.
2. A company's 5-year bonds are yielding 9.75%
per year. Treasury bonds with the same maturity...
