Question

You are planning to buy a corporate bond with a 7-year maturity that pays 7% coupon interest. The bond is priced

at $108,500 per $100,000 par value. You expect to sell the bond in 2 years when a similar-risk 5-year bond is priced to yield 7.2% annually to maturity. Assuming that you can reinvest all cash flows at an 8% annual rate (4% semiannually), calculate your expected total return over the 2-year holding period.
