Yield to Maturity: Loans Yield to maturity = interest rate that equates today’s value with present value of all future payments 1. Simple Loan ( i = 10%) $100 = $110/(1 + i ) $110 – $100 $10 i = = = 0.10 = 10% $100 $100 2. Fixed Payment Loan ( i = 12%) $126 $126 $126 $126 $1000 = + + + . .. + (1+ i ) (1+ i ) 2 (1+ i ) 3 (1+ i ) 25 FP FP FP FP LV = + + + . .. + (1+ i ) (1+ i ) 2 (1+ i ) 3 (1+ i ) n

Maturity and the Volatility of Bond Returns Key Findings from Table 2 1. Only bond whose return = yield is one with maturity = holding period 2. For bonds with maturity > holding period, i P implying capital loss 3. Longer is maturity, greater is % price change associated with interest rate change 4. Longer is maturity, more return changes with change in interest rate 5. Bond with high initial interest rate can still have negative return if i Conclusion from Table 2 Analysis 1. Prices and returns more volatile for long-term bonds

Distinction Between Real and Nominal Interest Rates Real Interest Rate Interest rate that is adjusted for expected changes in the price level i r = i π e 1. Real interest rate more accurately reflects true cost of borrowing 2. When real rate is low, greater incentives to borrow and less to lend if i = 5% and π e = 3% then: i r = 5% – 3% = 2%
