Question

**You purchased a $1,000 par value 20-year 4% coupon bond
with semi-annual payments for $1,000. Immediately after the
purchase, interest rates increased and the yield to maturity and
coupon reinvestment rate increased to 6%. (the coupons themselves
stayed at 4%) Interest rates and the yield to maturity remain at 6%
and you sell the bond 5 years later, having reinvested the coupons
at 6%. How much is in your account (proceeds from bond sale and
value of all coupons after reinvesting them) after you sell the
bond? Hint: one of the steps is to calculate the selling price of
the bond.**

Answer #1

Sale proceeds after 5 years= $914.70

Accumulated value of interest at 6% per year= $229.29

Money available (sale price +
interest accumulated)= **$1,143.98**

Calculations as below:

Suppose you purchase a 8-year, 6% semi-annual coupon bond for
89.153. Immediately after you purchase the bond, the yield for
equivalently risk bonds decreases by 100 basis points. However,
instead of holding the bond until maturity, you plan to hold the
bond for 3 years and then sell it. All coupons will be reinvested
at the prevailing yield on equivalently risky bonds. What will be
your return on this investment in this scenario? Round your answer
to three decimal places.

You are considering a coupon bond (par=$1,000) that pays
semi-annual interest with a coupon rate of 6%. The bond currently

interest payment was made 60 days ago, and there are 180 days
between the last interest payment and the next interest payment,
what is the invoice price of the bond?
A.
$1,180.0
B.
$1,170.0

One year ago, an investor purchased a 10-year, $1,000
par value, 8% semiannual coupon bond with an 8% yield to maturity.
Now, one year later, interest rates remain unchanged at 8%. If the
investor sells the bond today (immediately after receiving the
second coupon payment, and with no transaction costs), he will
have:
A. a capital gain of $80.
B. a capital loss of $80.
C. no capital gain or loss.

Consider a coupon bond with semi-annual coupon rate 6%, M = 100,
and n = 20. Assume the semi-annual yield to maturity y = 6%. Let ?
′ denote the reinvestment rate of the coupon payments. Let ? ′
denote the interest rate at the time of sale. Also, assume your
holding period to equal the Macaulay duration of the bond rounded
to the closest integer. Calculate the total future dollars at the
end of the holding period under the...

14. An investor purchases a just issued 30-year, 10.500%
semi-annual coupon bond at 104.079 percent of par value and sells
it after 10 years. The bond’s yield to maturity is 9.584% at time
of sale, and rises to 10.100% immediately after the purchase but
before the first coupon is received. All coupons are reinvested to
maturity at the new yield to maturity. Show the sources of return
below.
(a) Total coupon
payments:
(b) Reinvestment income from
coupons:
(c) Sale price...

Jose purchased a euro bond, which has a par value of $1,000, a
