Question

1.What happens to the price of a six-year bond with an 8% coupon when interest rates change from 9% to 8%?

2.What is the NPV of a project that costs $285,000 today and no cash inflows for 3 years, followed by cash inflows $95,000 annually for the next five years, if the opportunity cost of capital is 2%?

Answer #1

1. The price if the bond changes by :

The price of the bond when the interest rate is 9% is :

FV = $1000

PMT = 8% * 1000

= $80

N = 6 YEARS

I/Y = 9%

The present value of bond is = $955.1408

When the interest rate is 8%, the PV is

= $1000

So, the price of the bond increases by ( $1000 - $955.1408 = $44.8592)

=$44.86 (rounded off to two decimal places)

2. CF0 = ($285,000)

CF1 = $0

CF2= $0

CF3= $0

CF4 = $95,000

FO4 = 5

I/Y = 2%

THE NPV IS = $136951.8259

= $136951.82

Suppose you purchase a six-year, 8 percent coupon bond (paid
annually) that is priced to yield 9 percent. The face value of the
bond is $1,000. (3 points)
Show that the duration of this bond is equal to five
years.
D=[(80/1.08)+(80*2/(1.08)^2)+(80*3/(1.08)^3)+(80*4/(1.08)^4)+(80*5/(1.08)^5)+(1080*6/(1.08)^6)]/1000=
4992.7093/1000= 4.9927093= 5years
b.
Show that if interest rates rise to 10 percent within the next year
and your investment horizon is five years from today, you will
still earn a 9 percent yield on your investment. (Show...

Find the bond’s price six months from now after the next coupon
is paid if the interest rate rises to 7%.
