Zero coupon bonds Consider: zero coupon bond with face value of \$1000, maturing in three years, priced at \$750. No interim coupon payments (just the face value payment made at maturity): Price = PV(face value) Also called pure discount bonds Can directly calculate ytm (no guesswork required) Spot rate = ytm on zero coupon bond
Factors that affect bond prices Expected inflation Nominal rate How much is cost of goods generally increasing Real rate of interest How much is your real buying power increasing rate at which your \$\$ increases = (1 + inflation) * (1 + real) 1 Interest rate risk Some bonds more sensitive to fluctuations in interest rates D f l i k Default risk Might not get \$\$ you were promised Tax considerations Bonds aren’t taxed equally Liquidity Some bonds more difficult to quickly unload than others Take away: Something favorable means price will be higher (or, ytm will be lower)

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
