Excel Project 2 – Instructions EC370 – Fall 2008 1) First, download the Bond Valuation.xls from blackboard. Keep in mind when you do this assignment that ALL cells you enter in this assignment should be formulas with the exception of the guess for the yield to maturity (YTM). It’s always best practice to use formulas to reduce your work in the future, and it keeps your workbook as general as possible. The File contains information about two hypothetical bonds – A and B. Notice that each is a 5 year bond with a current yield of 10%. The purpose of this assignment is to increase familiarity with the bond pricing method learned in class, and to learn a few techniques in excel. 2) First, use the coupon rate and face value of the bonds to calculate the nominal (undiscounted) cash flows received each year. Remember that in the last year both the coupon and the face value are received. Use the ‘\$’ in your formulas to make it easier on yourself. If you can’t figure this part out on your own, look in the formula bar in the two screenshots below.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
