Problem Set #4 - Solutions GSI: Florent Rouxelin 8-1. A 30-year bond with a face value of \$1000 has a coupon rate of 5.5%, with semiannual payments. a. What is the coupon payment for this bond? b. Draw the cash flows for the bond on a timeline. a. The coupon payment is: Coupon Rate Face Value 0.055 \$1000 \$27.50. Number of Coupons per Year 2 CPN  b. The timeline for the cash flows for this bond is (the unit of time on this timeline is six-month periods): 2 P 100/(1.055) \$89.85  8-2. Assume that a bond will make payments every six months as shown on the following timeline (using six-month periods): a. What is the maturity of the bond (in years)? b. What is the coupon rate (in percent)? c. What is the face value? a. The maturity is 10 years. b. (20/1000) x 2 = 4%, so the coupon rate is 4%. c. The face value is \$1000. 8-7. Suppose a five-year, \$1000 bond with annual coupons has a price of \$900 and a yield to maturity of 6%. What is the bond’s coupon rate? 25 C C C 1000 900 C \$36.26, so the coupon rate is 3.626%. (1 .06) (1 .06) (1 .06)  We can use the annuity spreadsheet to solve for the payment. 1 \$27.50 0 2 \$27.50 3 \$27.50 60 \$27.50 + \$1000

NPER Rate PV PMT FV Excel Formula Given: 5 6.00% -900.00 1,000 Solve For PMT: 36.26 =PMT(0.06,5,-900,1000) Therefore, the coupon rate is 3.626%. 8-8. The prices of several bonds with face values of \$1000 are summarized in the following table: For each bond, state whether it trades at a discount, at par, or at a premium. Bond A trades at a discount. Bond D trades at par. Bonds B and C trade at a premium. 8-11. Suppose that General Motors Acceptance Corporation issued a bond with 10 years until maturity, a face value of \$1000, and a coupon rate of 7% (annual payments). The yield to maturity on this bond when it was issued was 6%.
