Suppose also that a liquidity premium of 0.5% and a default risk premium of 0.85% applies to A-rated corporate bonds. How much higher would the rate of return be on a 10-year A-rated corporate bond than on a 5-year Treasury bond?

Skylab's CFO has determined that the firm needs an additional $2,000,000, and has decided to issue 10-year, $1,000 par value bonds that pay only $50 in interest every six months. If both bonds are to provide investors with the same yield, how many new bonds must Skylab issue to raise $2,000,000? (Ignore the day or two difference between the bonds' issue dates)
