1. What is the discount yield, bond yield, and effective annual return on a $1million Treasury bill that currently sells at 97 3/8 percent of its face value and is 65 days sells at maturity?

Face Value (F)= $1,000,000
Price =P= 97.375% of $1,000,000 = $973,750
Days to maturity=t= 65 days
Discount yield ={ (F-P)/F} x (360/t)
Discount yield= 14.54% ={(1000000-973750)/1000000} x (360/65)

Return over the next 65 days= 2.70% =(1000000/973750)-1
Effective annual return= 16.14% =(1+0.027)^(365/65)

Bond equivalent yield= (365 x Discount rate)/ (360- Discount ratex Days to maturity)= 15.14% =(365 x 0.1454)/(360-0.1454x65)

2. Suppose you purchase a T-bill that is 125 days from maturity for $9,765. The T-bill has a face value of $10,000.

a. Calculate the T-bill's quoted discount yield.

Face Value (F)= $10,000
Price =P= $9,765
Days to maturity=t= 125 days
Discount yield ={ (F-P)/F} x (360/t)
Discount yield= 6.77% ={(10000-9765)/10000} x (360/125)

b. Calculate the T-bill's bond equivalent yield.

Face Value (F)= $10,000
Price =P= $9,765
Days to maturity=t= 125 days
Bond equivalent yield ={ (F-P)/P} x (365/t)
Discount yield= 7.03% ={(10000-9765)/9765} x (365/125)

3. You can buy commercial paper of a major US corporation for $495,000. The paper has a face value of $500,000 and is 45 days from maturity. Calculate the discount yield and bond equivalent yield on the commercial paper.

discount yield.

Face Value (F)= $500,000
Price =P= $495,000
Days to maturity=t= 45 days
Discount yield ={ (F-P)/F} x (360/t)
Discount yield= 8.00% ={(500000-495000)/500000} x (360/45)

bond equivalent yield.

Face Value (F)= $500,000
Price =P= $495,000
Days to maturity=t= 45 days
Bond equivalent yield ={ (F-P)/P} x (365/t)
Discount yield= 8.19% ={(500000-495000)/495000} x (365/45)
