FIN 300 Un-graded Practice HW (Chapter 8: Bonds & Chapter 2: Inflation) 1. (Semi-annual coupon bond price) Given the following information about a corporate bond, calculate the fair market price: Face/Par Value = \$1000 Coupons paid semi-annually Coupon rate = 12% 15 years left to maturity Yield-to-maturity (YTM) = 10% 2. (Semi-annual coupon bond price) For the bond in Problem #1, what would the price be if the YTM = 13%? What would the price be if the YTM were 12%? 3. (Semi-annual coupon bond price vs. maturity) For the bond in Problem #1 (w/YTM=10%), what would be the price when there is 5 years left to maturity – assuming the YTM doesn’t change? Do the same analysis for YTM’s = 13% and 12%, respectively. What does this tell us about the sensitivity of price to changes in YTM for bonds with differing maturities? 4. (Annual coupon bond price) Assume a bond with all of the specified characteristics of the one in Problem #1 except that the coupons are paid annually. What would be the price?

### 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.
