Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7% and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1,000, and the bond pays interest annually.

a) Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.

b) Supposing Twin Oaks's four-year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its current value? (Assume a 7% semiannual rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7% because a semiannual coupon bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon.)

c) Assuming that Twin Oak' bond had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Assume a 7% semiannual rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7%, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7% because of increased price risk.)

a) Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.
Maturity amount=M=$1000
Coupon Amount=1000*7%=$70
Number of coupon payments left=n=4
Required rate of return=r=14%

Current price of bond=C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+M/(1+r)^n
=70/14%*(1-1/(1+14%)^4)+1000/(1+14%)^4
...
