Conceptual questions preparation Findine: If coupon rate (100/1000) = ra =lOVo over the whole period, the PV doesn't change and the PV is equal to the FV (or M, par value). In this case, the bond is called par bond. Finding: If ra < coupon rate, then the bond price increases and thus the bond sell at a premium. The bond is called premium bond. Finding: this shows that even if ra * coupon rate, the market value of a bond always converges to its par value as its maturity date approaches. Finding: Total rate of return is qual to the market rate of return (r) even if coupon rate > f7. Finding: ff coupon rate < r4 , then the bond price decreases and thus the bond sell at a discount. The bond is called discount bond. Finding: The market value of a bond conv€fges to its par value as its maturity date approaches even ifcoupon rate I r4. Finding: Total rate of return is equal to the market rate of return (rd) even if coupon rate < f4. Finding: YTM = the market rate of return on the bond (ra) = curr€nt yield + capital gain yield. Finding: The longer the maturity of the bond, the greater its price changes in response to a given change in interest rates. The risk that reflects changes in a bond price to which investors are exposed is called 'interest rate (price) risk'. The premium due to interest rate risk is called maturitv risk premium.
