- 1 - Solutions to Chapter 14 Problems 6. a. Effective annual rate for 3-month T-bill: %0.10100.0102412.11645,97000,10044b. Effective annual interest rate for coupon bond paying 5% semiannually: (1.05.2− 1) = 0.1025 or 10.25% Therefore, the coupon bond has the higher effective annual interest rate. 7. The effective annual yield on the semiannual coupon bonds is 8.16%. If the annual coupon bonds are to sell at par they must offer the same yield, which requires an annual coupon rate of 8.16%. 9. Yield to maturity:Using a financial calculator, enter the following: n= 3; PV = 953.10; FV = 1000; PMT = 80; COMP iThis results in: YTM = 9.88% Realized compound yield:First, find the future value (FV) of reinvested coupons and principal: FV = (\$80 1.10 1.12) + (\$80 1.12) + \$1,080 = \$1,268.16 Then find the rate (yrealized ) that makes the FV of the purchase price equal to \$1,268.16: \$953.10 (1 + yrealized )3= \$1,268.16 yrealized= 9.99% or approximately 10% Or, using a financial calculator, enter the following: N = 3; PV = 953.10; FV = 1,268.16; PMT = 0; COMP I. Answer is 9.99%. 10. a. Zero coupon 8% coupon 10% coupon Current prices \$463.19 \$1,000.00 \$1,134.20 b. Price 1 year from now \$500.25 \$1,000.00 \$1,124.94 c. Price increase \$ 37.06 \$ 0.00 − \$ 9.26 Coupon income \$ 0.00 \$ 80.00 \$100.00 Pretax income \$ 37.06 \$ 80.00 \$ 90.74 Pretax rate of return 8.00% 8.00% 8.00%
