Question
3. Suppose you see the following bond price quote in the newspaper:
McDonalds 5.7% 2039..122.733
What can you tell about this bond from reading the price quote?
4. (calculating the present value of a bond) If a corporate bond with a face value of $1,000
has 24 years to go until it matures, has a coupon interest rate of 5.7% and a yield to
maturity (YTM) of 4.201%, what should be its price in the bond market (ie, PV)?
5. (calculating the current yield of a bond) If a corporate bond with a face value of $1,000
has 24 years to go until it matures, has a coupon interest rate of 5.7% and a market price
of $1,223.92, what is its current yield?
6. (calculating the YTM of a bond) If a corporate bond with a face value of $1,000 has 24
years to go until it matures, has a coupon interest rate of 5.7% and a market price of
$1,223.92, what is its yield to maturity (YTM)?
7. (calculating the YTC of a bond) Assume a callable corporate bond with a face value of
$1,000, a coupon interest rate of 5.7%, a market price of $1,223.92, and a call premium
of 6%. Assume also that the bond has 24 years to go until it matures, but it is callable
after 14 years. What is the bonds yield to call (YTC)?
8. (calculating the present value of a bond with semi-annual coupon interest payments) If a
corporate bond with a face value of $1,000 has 24 years to go until it matures, has a
coupon interest rate of 5.7%, paid semiannually, and has a yield to maturity (YTM) of
4.2%, what should be its price in the bond market (ie, PV)?
9. (calculating the YTM of a bond with semiannual interest payments) If a corporate bond with a
face value of $1,000 has 24 years to go until it matures, has a coupon interest rate of 5.7%, paid
semiannually, and has a market price of $1,223.92, what is its yield to maturity (YTM)?
11. Assume the real risk-free rate is 1%. Assume also that inflation is expected to be 1% in
the coming year (year 1), 2% in the next year after that (year 2), and 3% in the year after
that (year 3). Assume also that the default risk premium, the liquidity premium, and the
maturity risk premium are 0%. Given these conditions, what would be the yield on threeyear treasury bonds today?
12. Suppose the First Bank of St Louis was offering the following rates on certificates of
deposit (CDs) this week:
