R e . = The present value of the dividends is 1 2 3 4 5 (1 50) 2 (2 50) 3 8 1317 R R R R R + . + + . + = . . The note originally sells for 100 8 1317 91 868. . = . With the 50 cent permanent increase, the present value of dividends rises by 1 2 3 4 5 2.0957 2 R R R R R + + + + = to 10.2274, leading the note value to fall to100 10 2274 89 773. . = . n Question 12.2 For this problem, let 1 1 03 . B . = 1. The prepaid forward price is 015 3 1200 1147 20. T S e e . = = . 2. We have to solve the coupon, c , that solves 6 1 52 8 1147 20 1200 9 7467 5 4172 i i c B c = . + . = = = . . . 3. The prepaid forward price for 1 share at time t is 015 1200 ; P t t F e. = for each semiannual share, we can write the relevant prepaid forward price as 1200 D i where 015 2 . D e. / = With this formulation we have a similar analysis for the fractional shares, c * : 6 * * 1 52 8 1200 1147 20 1200 007528 shares. 1200 5 845 i i c D c = . + . = = = . . To interpret, we will receive 007528 . units of the index every six months. This has a current value of 1200 ( 007528) 9 0336. . = . We could quote c * in dollars ($9.0336) instead of units. 146 McDonald Fundamentals of Derivatives Markets n Question 12.3 1. This is the twoyear prepaid forward price: 015(2) 1200 1164 5. T S e e . = = . 2. As in Equation (12.5), 015(2) 8 1 1200(1 ) 4 762 7 4475 i P T t i S F e c P. = = = = . . . 3. As in the Problem 12.2c, letting 015 4 , D e. / = 8 8 * 8 * 8 1 1 1 1200 1200 1200 003757 shares, i i i i D c D D c D = = + = = = . which is currently worth ( 29 003757 $1200 $4 5084. . = . n Question 12.4 The relevant twoyear interest rate is ln(1 8763) 2 6 6023%. /. / = . 1. The embedded option is worth 247.91. The prepaid forward is worth 015(2) 1200 1164 53. e. = . The bond price is worth the sum 1164 53 247 91 1412 44 . + . = . . 2. must solve 1164 53 247 91 1200 35 47 247 91 1431. . + . = = . / . = . n Question 12.5 As in the previous question, we use 6 6023%. r = . 1. The embedded option is worth 247.91. The bond price is worth 1200 ( 8763) 247 91 1299 47 . + . = . . 2. must solve 1200 ( 8763) 247 88 1200 59884. . + . = = . n Question 12.6 We continue to use 6.6023% as the relevant twoyear interest rate. 1. The outofthemoney option (i.e., K = 1500) is worth 141.56, making the bond have a value of 1164 53 247 91 141 56 1270 89. . + . . = ....
