    Assume Venture Healthcare sold bonds that have a 10-year maturity, a 12% coupon rate with annual payments, and a $1,000 par value. Suppose that two years after the bonds were issued, the required interest rate fell to 7%. What would be the bonds value? Suppose that two years after the bonds were issued, the required interest rate rose to 13%. What would be the bonds value? What would be the value of the bonds three years after issue in each scenario above, assuming that interest rates stayed steady at either 7% or 13%?

    Twin Oaks Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7% and 4 years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1,000, and the bond pays interest annually.
    a) what is the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return?
    b)If Twin oaks' four year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be it current value?
    c) Assume that it had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Assuming a 7% semiannual required rate of return).

    Minneapolis health system has bonds outstanding that have four years remaining to maturity, a coupon interest rate of 9% paid annually and a $1,000 par value.
    a) What is the yield to maturity on the issue if the current market price is $829
    b) If the current market price is $1104
    c) Would you be willing to buy one of these bonds for $829 if you required a 12% rate of return on the issue?

    Six years ago, Bradford Hospital issued 20 year municipal bonds with a 7% annual coupon rate. The bonds were called today for a $70 call premium- that is, bondholders received $1070 for each bond. What is the realized rate of return for those investors who bought the bonds for $1,000 when they were issued.

    Coupon amount=PMT=1000*12%=$120
    Number of coupon payments left=NPER=8
    Required interest rate=RATE=7%
    Maturity amount=FV= $1,000
    Bond value can be found by using PV function in MS Excel.
    Bond Value=($1,298.56) PV(E7,E6,E5,E8)

    Coupon amount=PMT=1000*12%=$120
    Number of coupon payments left=NPER=8
    Required interest rate=RATE=13%
    Maturity amount=FV= $1,000
    Bond value can be found by using PV function in MS Excel.
    Bond Value=($952.01) =PV(E14,E13,E12,E15)

    What would be the value of the bonds three years after issue in each scenario above, assuming that interest rates stayed steady at either 7% or 13%?
    Coupon amount=PMT=1000*12%=$120
    Number of coupon payments left=NPER=7
    Required interest rate=RATE=7%
    Maturity amount=FV= $1,000
    Bond value can be found by using PV function in ...
