Warren Buffett “Value is defined simply: it is the sum total of the discounted cash that can be taken off of a project or business over its remaining life.” We can apply this thinking to bonds: Our focus today: intro to interest rates & bond math
3 Bonds and Loans A bond is a legal claim on a specified set of cash flows. Bond buyers are lending money to issuers; Issuers are borrowing from buyers. Bonds and loans are identical! Bonds/loans are capital investments; Lenders receive returns on investment through interest and principal payments. Bond valuation is all about the tradeoff of cash today for cash in the future

### 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.

• 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.

• 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.
