Question

As part of your financial plan for retirement, you purchased a 270-day $25,000 commercial paper on its date of issue, July 14, when market yields were 2.94%. 234 days later, you sold the note when market yields were 2.76%. What rate of return did you realize on your investment?

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Market Yield is 2.94% | face value of commercial paper =$25,000 | Purchase at 270-day

We need to calculate purchase price. Let assume that purchase price is X

X + *X × 2.94 × 270100 ×365* =
25,000

X+ 0.02174795X = 25,000

X (1. 0.02174795) = 25,000

X =$24,467.87

The commercial paper sold after 234 days when market yield was 2.76% and

time to mature is = 270 – 234 = 36 days

Lets assume sell price is X

X
+ *X × 2.76 × 36100 ×365* =
25,000

X (1 + 0.00272219178) = 25,000

X = 24,932.13

So, return from investment = Sell Price – Purchase price

= $24,932.13 - $24,467.87 =$464.26

Rate of return from investment
= *464.26 × 100**24,467.87
×(**234**365)***= 2.96%**

**Answer: The rate
of return relize from the investment is 2.96%.**

Calculating Yields
Unlike the coupon interest rate, which is fixed, a bond’s yield
varies from day to day depending on market conditions. To be most
useful, it should give us an estimate of the rate of return an
investor would earn if that investor purchased the bond today and
held it for its remaining life. There are three different yield
calculations: Current yield, yield to maturity, and yield to
call.
A bond’s current yield is calculated as the annual interest...
