Answer a.
Par Value = $2,000
Annual Coupon Rate = 7.310%
Semiannual Coupon Rate = 7.310% / 2
Semiannual Coupon Rate = 3.655%
Semiannual Coupon = 3.655% * $2,000
Semiannual Coupon = $73.10
Time to Maturity = 22 years
Semiannual Period = 44
Annual YTM = 5.520%
Semiannual YTM = 2.760%
Current Price = $73.10 * PVIFA(2.760%, 44) + $2,000 *
PVIF(2.760%, 44)
Current Price = $73.10 * (1 - (1/1.02760)^44) / 0.02760 + $2,000 *
(1/1.02760)^44
Current Price = $73.10 * 25.296584 + $2,000 * 0.301814
Current Price = $2,452.81
Answer b.
Annual Coupon = 2 * Semiannual Coupon
Annual Coupon = 2 * $73.10
Annual Coupon = $146.20
Current Yield = Annual Coupon / Current Price
Current Yield = $146.20 / $2,452.81
Current Yield = 0.0596 or 5.96%
