Question

Assume you have a one-year investment horizon and are trying to
choose among three bonds. All have the same degree of default risk
and mature in 8 years. The first is a zero-coupon bond that pays
$1,000 at maturity. The second has a 7.6% coupon rate and pays the
$76 coupon once per year. The third has a 9.6% coupon rate and pays
the $96 coupon once per year. Assume that all bonds are compounded
annually.

**a.** If all three bonds are now priced to yield 7.6%
to maturity, what are their prices? **(Do not round
intermediate calculations.** **Round your answers to 2
decimal places.)**

**b.** If you expect their yields to maturity to be
7.6% at the beginning of next year, what will their prices be then?
**(Do not round intermediate calculations.**
**Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)**

**c.** What is your rate of return on each bond during
the one-year holding period?

Answer #1

Bond Par Value = $1,000

Time to Maturity = 8 years

Bond A,

Coupon Rate = 0%

Bond B,

Coupon Rate = 7.6%

Bond C,

Coupon Rate = 9.6%

a.

If YTM = 7.6%

Present Value of Bond A,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 8, I = 0.076, PMT = 0]

PV = $556.55

Present Value of Bond B,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 8, I = 0.076, PMT = 76]

PV = $1,000

Present Value of Bond C,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 8, I = 0.076, PMT = 96]

PV = $1116.7

2.

After 1 year YTM = 7.6%

Present Value of Bond A,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 7, I = 0.076, PMT = 0]

PV = $598.84

Present Value of Bond B,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 7, I = 0.076, PMT = 76]

PV = $1,000

Present Value of Bond C,

PV = [FV = 1000, T = 7, I = 0.076, PMT = 96]

PV = $1,105.57

3.

Holding Period Return of Bond A = (598.84 - 556.55)/556.55 = 7.60%

Holding Period Return of Bond B = (1000 - 1000 + 76)/1000 = 7.60%

Holding Period Return of Bond C = (1105.57 - 1116.70 + 96)/1116.70 = 7.60%

Assume that you want to choose one out of the three bonds. All
are rated BBB by S&P, with $1,000 par value and 15 years of
maturity. The first has a 6% coupon rate and pays $30 every six
months. The second has an 8% coupon rate and pays $40 coupon twice
a year. The third has a 10% coupon and pays $100 coupon once per
year. The YTM for the three bonds is 10%. Which bond(s) is(are)
sold at...

Consider three bonds with 6.70% coupon rates, all making annual
coupon payments and all selling at face value. The short-term bond
has a maturity of 4 years, the intermediate-term bond has a
maturity of 8 years, and the long-term bond has a maturity of 30
years.
e. What will be the price of the 8-year bond if its yield
decreases to 5.70%? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round
your answers to 2 decimal places.)

Consider three bonds with 6.70% coupon rates, all making annual
coupon payments and all selling at face value. The short-term bond
has a maturity of 4 years, the intermediate-term bond has a
maturity of 8 years, and the long-term bond has a maturity of 30
years. a. What will be the price of the 4-year bond if its yield
increases to 7.70%? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round
your answers to 2 decimal places.)

assume you have a one year investment horizon and purchase a
semiannual coupon bond today that pays 9% coupon anually, had a bar
of 1000 matures in 20 years and 10% ytm. If you owned the bond for
exactly one year( exactly 19 of maturity left ) and the bond is
currently yelding 8% to maturity . What is the rate of return?
a- 9.84%
b- -5.24%
c- 10%
d- -11.80%

Currently, the term structure is as follows: One-year bonds
yield 8.50%, two-year zero-coupon bonds yield 9.50%, three-year and
longer maturity zero-coupon bonds all yield 10.50%. You are
choosing between one, two, and three-year maturity bonds all paying
annual coupons of 9.50%. You strongly believe that at year-end the
yield curve will be flat at 10.50%.
