If your required rate of return is 11 ​percent, what is the value of the​ bond? What is the value if the interest is paid​ annually? a. If the interest is paid​ semiannually, the value of the bond is ​\$___?

Price of the bond = PV of all the Coupon payments + PV of the Par value of the bond

We will use BA 2 Plus Financial calculator to find the Price of the bond if the interest is paid semiannually:

N(number of coupon payments) = 12*2 = 24

I/Y(Interest rate per period) = 11%/2 = 5.5%

FV(Face Value) = \$1000

PMT(Coupon payment per period) = (15%*\$1000)/2 = \$75

CMPT PV

Price of the semiannual bond = \$1,263.0340

We will use BA 2 Plus Financial calculator to find the Price of the bond if the interest is paid annually:

N(number of coupon payments) = 12

I/Y(Interest rate per period) = 11%

FV(Face Value) = \$1000

PMT(Coupon payment per period) = (15%*\$1000) = \$150

CMPT PV

Price of the annual bond = \$1,259.6942
