The annual effective yield is 7% and the coupons are 5% a year. Find the price of this bond per $100 par value. Is it sold at a discount or a premium? Solution 0.1. We have • 10 coupons ( n = 10 ), • F = C = 100 , • coupon rate r = 0 . 05 / 2 = 2 . 5% , • The yield to mature per payment period: i = 1 . 07 . 5 1 = 0 . 03441 . The price is P = 2 . 5% × 100 × a 10  i + 100(1 + i ) 10 = 2 . 5 × 1 i 10 i + 100 × (1 + i ) 10 = 92 . 15 The bond is sold at a discount since P < 100 . This is expected since r < i . (2) (10 points) A corporate bond with face value 100 pays semiannual coupons at a coupon rate of 8% (annualized rate). The bond is priced to yield 6% compounded semiannually.
