4 6.1 Bonds and Bond Valuation Firs some terminology: A 30 year $1,000 bond pays $100 per year (annual payments) and repays the $1,000 in thirty years. The market requires a 10% return on loans to this company. COUPON = $100 COUPON RATE = Coupon/Face = $100/$1,000 = 10% COUPON PERIOD = Annual FACE VALUE or PAR VALUE = $1,000 TIME (or TERM) TO MATURITY = 30 years YIELD TO MATURITY (YTM) = required rate = 10%

7 Calculate the price of the bond: 30 year $1,000 Face or Par Value, 10% annual coupon and 10% required rate (so YTM = 10%) Two Components: 1. Thirty payments of $100, discounted at 10%: PV = 100/(1.1) + 100/(1.1) 2 + 100/(1.1) 3 + … + 100/(1.1) 30 = $942.69 N = 30 I/YR = 10 PMT = 100 PV = -942.69 1. One payment of $1,000 in thirty years PV = 1,000/(1.1) 30 = $57.31 N = 30 I/YR = 10 FV = 1000 PV = -57.31 Or both at the same time: Total Price: = $942.69 + $57.31 = $1,000 N = 30 I/YR = 10 PMT = 100 FV = 1000 PV = -1000 Equal to the Face Value or Par Value

8 Calculate the price of the bond: Same bond with a different YTMs: Why might the bond’s YTM change? The issuer’s credit rating has changed All rates have changed 30 year $1,000 Face or Par Value, 10% annual coupon 8% required rate (YTM = 8%) N = 30 I/YR = 8 PMT = 100 FV = 1000 PV = -1225 Price = $1,225 Great than the Face Value or Par Value (Premium) 30 year $1,000 Face or Par Value, 10% annual coupon 12% required rate (YTM = 8%) N = 30 I/YR = 8 PMT = 100 FV = 1000 PV = -893 Price = $839 Less than the Face Value or Par Value (Premium)
