# Current value of bond and share

1. A large grocery chain is reevaluating its bonds since it is planning to issue a new bond in the current market. The firm's outstanding bond issue has 6 years remaining until maturity. The bonds were issued with a 6 percent coupon rate (paid semiannually) and a par value of \$1,000. Because of increased risk the required rate is 10 percent. What is the current value of these bonds?

2. In 2004, Venus Fly Co. issued a \$75 par value preferred stock which pays \$5.25 annual dividend. Due to changes in the overall economy and in the company's financial condition investors are now requiring a 5 percent return. What price would you be willing to pay for a share of the preferred if you receive your first dividend one year from now?
