CHAPTER 2 : FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTRUMENTS 1. a. (4) b. (3) 2. a. r BEY = × = × = .08449, or 8.45% b. One reason is that the discount yield is computed by dividing the dollar discount from par by the par value, \$10,000, rather than by the bill's price, \$9,600. A second reason is that the discount yield is annualized by a 360-day year rather than 365. 3. P = 10,000 [1 – r BD (n/360)] where r BD is the discount yield. P ask = 10,000 [1 – .0681 (60/360)] = \$9,886.50 P bid = 10,000 [1 – .0690 (60/360)] = \$9,885.00 4 . r BEY = × = × = 6.98%, which exceeds the discount yield, r BD = 6.81%. To obtain the effective annual yield, r EAY , note that the 60-day growth factor for invested funds is = 1.01148. Annualizing this growth rate results in 1+ r EAY = ( ) 365/60 = 1.0719 which implies that r EAY = 7.19% 5. a. i. 1 + r = (10,000/9,764) 4 = 1.100 r = 10.0% 2-1

ii. 1 + r = (10,000/9,539) 2 = 1.099 r = 9.9% The three-month bill offers a higher effective annual yield. b. i. r BD = × = .0934 ii. r BD = × = .0912 6. The total before-tax income is \$4, of which .30 × \$4 = \$1.20 is taxable income (after the 70% exclusion). Taxes therefore are .30 × \$1.20 = \$.36, for an after-tax income of \$3.64, and an after-tax rate of return of 9.1%. 7. a. The closing price is listed as 61 3/8, which is 3/16 higher than yesterday’s price.

### 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.
