Thus the coupon rate is 12 percent. Also assume that the appropriate discount rate to apply is 10 percent. Thus 10 percent is the effective market interest rate. 2 Continuing with the example V = 120(1.1)1 +120(1.1)2 +1,120(1.1)3 . Thus the value for the price of the bond is 1,049.7. It makes sense that V is higher than 1,000 because the coupon rate is higher than the effective market interest rate. 3 The general formula for discounted cash flow (page 881) is V = C 1 (1+r)1 +C 2 (1+r)2 ++C N (1+r)N Where C i is the Cash flow i periods in the future, r is the appropriate discount factor to use, and N is the forecast horizon. 4 Thus in applying discounted cash flow analysis there are 3 issues. 1. What discount factor to use....
