Problem Set 7: Chapter 14 6. Which Security has a higher effective annual interest rate? a. A 3-month T-bill selling at $97,645 with par value $100,000. b. A coupon bond selling at par and paying a 10% coupon semiannually. 8. Consider a bond with a 10% coupon and a yield to maturity =8%. If the bond’s yield to maturity remains constant, then in 1 year, will the bond price be higher, lower or unchanged? 11. A 20-year maturity bond with par value of a $1,000 makes semiannual coupon payments at a coupon rate of 8%. Find the bond equivalent and effective annual yield to maturity of the bond if the bond price is: a. $950. b. $1,000. c. $1,050. 12. Repeat problem 11 using the same data, assuming that the bond makes its coupon payments

Unformatted text preview: annually. Why are the yields you compute lower this time? 21. A 30-year maturity, 8% coupon bond paying coupons semiannually is callable in 5 years at a call price of $1,100. The bond currently sells at a yield to maturity of 7% (3.5% per half-year). a. What is the yield to call? b. What is the yield to call if the call price is only $1,050? c. What is the yield to call if the call price is $1,100, but the bond can be called in 2 years instead of 5 years? 23. A 2-year bond with par value $1,000 making annual coupon payments of $100 is priced at $1,000. What is the yield to maturity of the bond? What will be the realized compound yield to maturity if the 1 year interest rate next year turns out to be(a ) 8%, (b) 10%, (c)12%?...
