Lecture 10 page 72 BOND AND STOCK VALUATION The valuation (pricing) of bonds and stock is a straight forward application of the time value of money (TVM) concepts we have just studied. Bonds and stock are just series of cash flows. What kinds of cash flows are received from bonds? What kinds of cash flows are received from stock? Regardless of the assets name, the current value of any asset is the present value (today) of its cash flows.
