All bonds we will study pay SEMI-ANNUALLY (coupon every 6 months)
An 8% bond pays two coupons of $40 each
A 30 year bond has 60 interest coupons.
PAR AT MATURITY ($1000)
PRINCIPAL ($1000 PAR) -- LUMP SUM AT MATURITY
INTEREST coupons (SEMIANNUAL) (ANNUITY)
The value of a bond is the NPV of both elements
The price of a bond is, therefore, another TVM problem.
What is the discount rate?
The current MARKET rate of bonds of similar TYPE, QUALITY and MATURITYBOND VALUATIONSEE LEC NOTES PP. 35-38

RATING FROM AAA (best) to BA (lowest “investment” grade), to below B (“junk bonds.”
The bond rating is a measure of business risk or risk of default only.
Corporations and municipalities must pay a fee to have bonds rated. Therefore many bonds are NR.BOND “RATING” SERVICES
CAPITAL GAINS “YIELD”
If a bond is selling at a PREMIUM (above par), bondholder will have a capital loss to maturity.
If a bond is selling at a DISCOUNT, you have a guaranteed capital gain to maturity.
PREMIUM: CURRENT YIELD > THAN YTM WHY?
CURRENT YIELD < YTM. WHY?YIELD TO MATURITY
The coupon is 7.5%
The bond matures on May 15, 2015 (Millennium problem does not affect calculator)
The market yield is 6%. Compute PRICE
THIS IS SDT

Matures at par. Par is expressed in % in your calculator. Therefore $1000 par is entered as 100 or 100%

What is the accrued income? Who pays it and why?
Accrued income is added to the amount received by the SELLER
Who will receive the June 30 coupon? THE BUYER.
The buyer must pay the seller accrued interest for the time he owned the bond since the last coupon. This is done on settlement date.ACCRUED INTEREST
You buy a bond on Friday. Monday is a Holiday. When is corporate settlement? This is when good funds must be available to pay for bond or stock.
Government (TREASURY) bonds are next day settlement (next business day).
SDT on your financial calculator is settlement date.
RDT (redemption date) is maturity or call date.TRADE DATE AND SETTLEMENT DATE
A convert is “Quasi Equity.” It behaves like common stock.

This means the conversion price is $50 ($1000 par / 20)
When a convert is issued, the conversion price is usually 15% or so below common price. Why?
Assume the common price is $40 when the bond is floated.CONVERT PROBLEM
What is the theoretical value of the convert?
Conv ratio = number of common shares per bond X stock price
TV = 20 x $65 = $1300
Assume the call price set in the indenture is 103 ($1030). What happens if this bond is called?CONVERT PROBLEM CONTD
Priority of claim
Current yield on bond vs dividend yield on stock
Say the bond we are looking at carried a coupon of 8%. The burrent yield at a price of $1300 = 6.15%. Assume the common dividend is $2.00. The dividend yield is 2/65 or 3.1%. Which would you rather own?CONVERTS CONTD
Price is simply the NPV of the par value ($1000) at maturity.
What reasons can you think of for investors to own zero coupon treasuries?
Compute the price of a Treasury maturing in 30 years when the yield on coupon conds of similar type and quality is 6.4%WHAT ARE ZERO COUPON BONDS?
