3 Lecture 1 The coupon bond The coupon bond is just the same as the deposit account specified above, where P = price of the bond V = face value of the bond W = regular coupon payment = c V c = “coupon rate” n = term to maturity

4 Lecture 1 The coupon bond V = P(1+i) n – W(1+i) (n-1) – W(1+i) (n-2) – ... – W(1+i) – W = P(1+i) n – cV(1+i) (n-1) – cV(1+i) (n-2) – ... – cV(1+i) – cV Divide both sides by (1+i) n and rearrange: P = cV/(1+i) + cV/(1+i) 2 + … + cV/(1+i) n + V/(1+i) n The price of the bond is the discounted value of all payments made to the bond holder
5 Lecture 1 Example:  The Coupon Bond Suppose Face value: V = \$1000 Term to maturity: n = 2 Coupon rate: c = 0.1 Yearly coupon payments: cV = \$100 Price: P = \$1000 P = cV/(1+i) + cV/(1+i) 2 + V/(1+i) 2 1000 = 100/(1+i) + 100/(1+i) 2 + 1000/(1+i) 2 i = 0.1 (10%) Observe: If you deposit P = \$1000 into the bank at 10% interest, you can withdraw \$100 at the end of the first and the second years, and still have \$1000 in the bank.

6 Lecture 1 A Special Case  On a coupon bond: If P = V, then i = c Intuition: Think of the bank account that is equivalent to this bond. If P = V, then the amount of money in the account does not grow. That means all interest earned is withdrawn each period. Since the price of the bond and the interest rate are inversely related If P > V, then i < c If P < V, then i > c
7 Lecture 1 Pricing bonds Given: Relationship between bond price and interest rate Information about the interest rate the bond must deliver E.g. an equilibrium condition implied by interest rates on substitute assets we can price a given bond P = cV/(1+i) + cV/(1+i) 2 + … + cV/(1+i) n + V/(1+i) n

8 Lecture 1 Pricing bonds Consider the following coupon bond: Face value: V = \$2000 Term to maturity: n = three years Coupon rate: 0.06 i.e. coupon payments are \$120 each year A perfectly substitutable asset offers an interest rate of 5% i.e. in equilibrium, the coupon bond must also offer i =0.05 P = cV/(1+i) + cV/(1+i) 2 + cV/(1+i) 3 + V/(1+i) 3 = \$120/(1.05) + \$120/(1.05) 2 + \$120/(1.05) 3 +\$2000/(1.05) 3 = \$2054.46 Note: P > V is implied since i < c

### 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.
