1 test 3 2008 1.1 Problem 1 1. I forgot to mention the interest rate is 5%. My apologies for the confusion. Break the two streams of cash into $100 from t = 1 , ··· , 20 $100 from t = 11 , ··· , 20 2. Then we write the duration as tC t v t C t v t = 20 t =1 100 tv t + 10 t =1 100( t + 10) v t +10 100 a 20 i + 100 a 10 i v 10 = 100( I 1 , 1 a ) 20 i + v 10 ( 10 t =1 100 tv t + 10 t =1 1000 v t ) 100 a 20 i + 100 a 10 i v 10 = 100( I 1 , 1 a ) 20 i + v 10 (100( I 1 , 1 a ) 10 i + 1000 a 10 i ) 100 a 20 i + 100 a 10 i v 10 = 10 . 6104 3. Now we equate present values 3000(1 . 05) - t = 100 a 20 i + 100 a 10 i v 10 t = - ln ± 100 a 20 i + 100 a 10 i v 10 3000 ² /ln (1 . 05) t = 11 . 40 1.2 Problem 2 1. Coupon = . 06 * 1000 = 60 2. Price = 60(1 . 06) - 1 + 60(1 . 07) - 2 + 1060(1 . 08) - 3 = 950 . 47 3. Ignore the yield rate question 4. (1 + f 3 ) = (1+ s 3 ) 3 (1+ s 2 ) 2 = 1 . 1003 1.3 Problem 3 1. A put option with strike K allows you to sell a single share of stock for K dollars. You would much prefer to have the right to sell the stock for $200 versus $100, thus the premium for a 200 strike put option should be higher than a 100 strike put option. 2. One possible solution would be to purchase a long put with strike
