10)

Consider a corporate bond with a face value of \$1,000, 2 years to maturity and a coupon rate of 5%. Coupons are paid semi-annually. The next coupon payment is to be made exactly 6 months from today. What is this bond's YTM assuming the following spot rate curve.

6-month spot rate: 4%.

12-month: 5%.

18-month: 5.5%.

24-month: 5.8%.

11) What is the current yield of a 6-year Treasury note with a coupon rate of 5%, a face value of \$100, and is currently trading at 100:10?

Yeild to maturity (YTM) can be calculated using two methods:

a) Approximation Method

b) IRR Method

Both the methods gives approximately same results.

we are using approximation method to solve this question.

YTM= (C+(F-P)/n) / ((F+P)/2)

where C= Coupon Payment/Interest Payment

F= Face Value

P=Price

n=years to maturity

Putting Values in the equation above:

YTM= (1000*4%+(1000-1150)/20) / ((1000+1150)/2)

Coupon rate is 8% for an year; so 4% semi annually

years to maturity is 10 years; 20 semi annual

YTM=(40+(-7.5))/1075

YTM=3.02% semi annually

So YTM= 3.02%*2= 6.05% annually

If a coupon paying bond is trading below par ; lets say 999

putting the above price in above formulla

YTM= (1000*4%+(1000-999)/20)/ ((1000+999)/2)

YTM= 4.01% semi annually

YTM= 8.01% annually

So correct answer is (C) YTM> Coupon Rate

If a bond is trading at par; i.e 1000

YTM=(1000*4%+(1000-1000)/20)/((1000+1000)/2)

YTM=4 % semi annually

YTM= 8% annually

SO correct part is (b) YTM=Coupon Rate

coupon rate= 6% annually , so 3% semi annually

Assumed 360 days in an year, so 180 days in 6 months

94 days left for the next coupon payment, it means we have already earned interest for 86 days (180 days-94 days)

Accrued Interest= 1000*3%*86/180

Accried Intererst = \$14.33
