Problem 1

Suppose a corporation's bonds have 8 years remaining to maturity. In addition, suppose the bonds have

a $1000 face value, and the coupon interest rate is 7%. The bonds have a yield to maturity of 10%. Complete parts (a) and (b) below.

a) Compute the market price of the bonds if interest is paid annually.

Number of periods=NPER=8

Maturity amount=Face Value=FV=$1,000

Coupon amount=PMT=1000*7%=$70

YTM=RATE=10%

Type of payment=TYPE=0 Coupon is paid at the end of period

Current Market price can be found by using PV function in MS Excel.

Current Market Price=PV=($839.95) =PV(E10,E7,E9,E8,E11)

Current Market Price=$839.95

b) Compute the market price of the bonds if interest is paid semiannually.

Number of periods=NPER=8*2=16 Coupon is paid semiannually

Maturity amount=Face Value=FV=$1,000

Coupon amount=PMT=1000*7%/2=$35

YTM=RATE=10%/2=5% Semi annual

Type of payment=TYPE=0 Coupon is paid at the end of period

Current Market price can be found by using PV function in MS Excel.

Current Market Price=PV=($837.43) ...
