Question 1 Suppose you have $10,000 to invest in either (a) Bond A, a 5-year zero-coupon; or (b) Bond B, a 10-year zero coupon bond. Both are risk free government bonds. You plan to hold the bond for a year and your only objective is to take on as little interest rate risk as possible. Which one should you choose? Bond A. Bond B. Question 2 (15 points) Five years ago, Highland, Inc. issued a corporate bond with an annual coupon of $6,000, paid at the rate of $3,000 every six months, and a maturity of 10 years. The par (face) value of the bond is $1,000,000. Recently, however, the company has run into some financial difficulty and has restructured its obligations.Today’s coupon payment has already been paid, but the remaining coupon payments will be postponed until maturity. The postponed payments will accrue interest at an annual rate of 5% per year and will be paid as a lump sum amount at maturity along with the face value. The discount rate on the renegotiated bonds, now considered much riskier, has gone from 7% prior to the renegotiations to 15% per annum with the announcement of the restructuring. What is the price at which the new renegotiated bond should be selling today? (Recall that the compounding interval is 6 months and the YTM, like all interest rates, is reported on an annualized basis.) (Enter just the number without the $ sign or a comma, and no decimals.)
