Before we begin: BONDS Written promise that the borrower will pay the lender, at a future date, a sum of money (the principal) and a stated rate of interest. Secured Bonds: tied to a specific asset. Debentures: (unsecured bond) No specific asset pledged. Secured bonds have precedence in the even of liquidation. Registered vs. Bearer Example of a bond: An investor purchases a $10,000 (the principal) bond from BCE Inc. In return, BCE agrees to pay the bondholder $700 (7%) per annum for 10 years, and when the bond matures will pay back the principal.

BONDS Cont. Retirement: Most bonds are callable and have a call price. Some have sinking funds – dedicated fund to repayment of principal Serial Bonds retire according to a schedule. Convertible Bonds can be paid off in common stock at the option of the bondholder. Secondary Bond Markets Bonds are traded in the OTC market. Bonds fluctuate in market value: as interest rates increase existing bond prices tend to decline. As interest rates decrease existing bond prices tend to rise. Bond Yield is comprised of gains/losses from price changes and the stated interest rate (p. 422)

    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.
