Chapter 19

The Fundamentals of Bond Valuation

The present-value model

Where:

Pm=the current market price of the bond

n = the number of years to maturity

C= the annual coupon payment for bond i

i = the prevailing yield to maturity for this bond issue

Pp=the par value of the bond

If yield < coupon rate, bond will be priced at a premium to its par value

If yield > coupon rate, bond will be priced at a discount to its par value

Price-yield relationship is convex (not a straight line)

The Fundamentals of Bond ValuationThe Yield Model its par value

The expected yield on the bond may be computed from the market price

Where:

i = the discount rate that will discount the cash flows to equal the current market price of the bond

Computing Bond Yields its par value

Yield Measure Purpose

Nominal Yield

Measures the coupon rate

Current yield

Measures current income rate

Promised yield to maturity

Measures expected rate of return for bond held to maturity

Promised yield to call

Measures expected rate of return for bond held to first call date

Measures expected rate of return for a bond likely to be sold prior to maturity. It considers specified reinvestment assumptions and an estimated sales price. It can also measure the actual rate of return on a bond during some past period of time.

Realized (horizon) yield

Nominal Yield its par value

Measures the coupon rate that a bond investor receives as a percent of the bond’s par value

Current Yield its par value

Similar to dividend yield for stocks

Important to income oriented investors

CY = C/Pm

where:

CY = the current yield on a bond

C = the annual coupon payment of bond

Pm = the current market price of the bond

Promised Yield to Maturity its par value

- Widely used bond yield figure
- Assumes
- Investor holds bond to maturity
- All the bond’s cash flow is reinvested at the computed yield to maturity

Solve for i that will equate the current price to all cash flows from the bond to maturity, similar to IRR

Computing the its par valuePromised Yield to Maturity

Two methods

- Approximate promised yield
- Easy, less accurate

- Present-value model
- More involved, more accurate

Approximate Promised Yield its par value

Coupon + Annual Straight-Line Amortization of Capital Gain or Loss

Average Investment

=

Present-Value Model its par value

Promised Yield to Call its par valueApproximation

- May be less than yield to maturity
- Reflects return to investor if bond is called and cannot be held to maturity

Where:

AYC = approximate yield to call (YTC)

Pc= call price of the bond

Pm = market price of the bond

C= annual coupon payment

nc = the number of years to first call date

Promised Yield to Call its par valuePresent-Value Method

Where:

Pm= market price of the bond

C = annual coupon payment

nc = number of years to first call

Pc = call price of the bond

Realized Yield Approximation its par value

Where:

ARY = approximate realized yield to call (YTC)

Pf= estimated future selling price of the bond

C= annual coupon payment

hp = the number of years in holding period of the bond

Realized Yield its par valuePresent-Value Method

Calculating Future Bond Prices its par value

Where:

Pf= estimated future price of the bond

C = annual coupon payment

n = number of years to maturity

hp = holding period of the bond in years

i = expected semiannual rate at the end of the holding period

What Determines Interest Rates its par value

- Inverse relationship with bond prices
- Forecasting interest rates
- Fundamental determinants of interest rates
i = RFR + I + RP

where:

- RFR = real risk-free rate of interest
- I = expected rate of inflation
- RP = risk premium

What Determines Interest Rates its par value

- Effect of economic factors
- real growth rate
- tightness or ease of capital market
- expected inflation
- or supply and demand of loanable funds

- Impact of bond characteristics
- credit quality
- term to maturity
- indenture provisions
- foreign bond risk including exchange rate risk and country risk

What Determines Interest Rates its par value

- Term structure of interest rates
- Expectations hypothesis
- Liquidity preference hypothesis
- Segmented market hypothesis
- Trading implications of the term structure

Any long-term interest rate simply represents the geometric mean of current and future one-year interest rates expected to prevail over the maturity of the issue

Expectations HypothesisLong-term securities should provide higher returns than short-term obligations because investors are willing to sacrifice some yields to invest in short-maturity obligations to avoid the higher price volatility of long-maturity bonds

Liquidity Preference TheoryDifferent institutional investors have different maturity needs that lead them to confine their security selections to specific maturity segments

Segmented-Market HypothesisInformation on maturities can help you formulate yield expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

Trading Implications of the Term StructureYield Spreads expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

- Segments: government bonds, agency bonds, and corporate bonds
- Sectors: prime-grade municipal bonds versus good-grade municipal bonds, AA utilities versus BBB utilities

What Determines the expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curvePrice Volatility for Bonds

Bond price change is measured as the percentage change in the price of the bond

Where:

EPB = the ending price of the bond

BPB = the beginning price of the bond

What Determines the expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curvePrice Volatility for Bonds

Four Factors

1. Par value

2. Coupon

3. Years to maturity

4. Prevailing market interest rate

What Determines the expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curvePrice Volatility for Bonds

Five observed behaviors

1. Bond prices move inversely to bond yields (interest rates)

2. For a given change in yields, longer maturity bonds post larger price changes, thus bond price volatility is directly related to maturity

3. Price volatility increases at a diminishing rate as term to maturity increases

4. Price movements resulting from equal absolute increases or decreases in yield are not symmetrical

5. Higher coupon issues show smaller percentage price fluctuation for a given change in yield, thus bond price volatility is inversely related to coupon

What Determines the expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curvePrice Volatility for Bonds

- The maturity effect
- The coupon effect
- The yield level effect
- Some trading strategies

The Duration Measure expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

- Since price volatility of a bond varies inversely with its coupon and directly with its term to maturity, it is necessary to determine the best combination of these two variables to achieve your objective
- A composite measure considering both coupon and maturity would be beneficial

The Duration Measure expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

Developed by Frederick R. Macaulay, 1938

Where:

t = time period in which the coupon or principal payment occurs

Ct= interest or principal payment that occurs in period t

i = yield to maturity on the bond

Characteristics of Duration expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

- Duration of a bond with coupons is always less than its term to maturity because duration gives weight to these interim payments
- A zero-coupon bond’s duration equals its maturity

- There is an inverse relation between duration and coupon
- There is a positive relation between term to maturity and duration, but duration increases at a decreasing rate with maturity
- There is an inverse relation between YTM and duration
- Sinking funds and call provisions can have a dramatic effect on a bond’s duration

Modified Duration and Bond Price Volatility expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

An adjusted measure of duration can be used to approximate the price volatility of a bond

Where:

m = number of payments a year

YTM = nominal YTM

Duration and Bond Price Volatility expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

- Bond price movements will vary proportionally with modified duration for small changes in yields
- An estimate of the percentage change in bond prices equals the change in yield time modified duration

Where:

P = change in price for the bond

P = beginning price for the bond

Dmod = the modified duration of the bond

i = yield change in basis points divided by 100

Trading Strategies Using Duration expectations by simply observing the shape of the yield curve

- Longest-duration security provides the maximum price variation
- If you expect a decline in interest rates, increase the average duration of your bond portfolio to experience maximum price volatility
- If you expect an increase in interest rates, reduce the average duration to minimize your price decline
- Note that the duration of your portfolio is the market-value-weighted average of the duration of the individual bonds in the portfolio

Bond Duration in Years for Bonds Yielding 6 Percent Under Different Terms

Bond Convexity Different Terms

- Equation 19.6 is a linear approximation of bond price change for small changes in market yields

Bond Convexity Different Terms

- Modified duration is a linear approximation of bond price change for small changes in market yields
- Price changes are not linear, but a curvilinear (convex) function

Price-Yield Relationship for Bonds Different Terms

- The graph of prices relative to yields is not a straight line, but a curvilinear relationship
- This can be applied to a single bond, a portfolio of bonds, or any stream of future cash flows
- The convex price-yield relationship will differ among bonds or other cash flow streams depending on the coupon and maturity
- The convexity of the price-yield relationship declines slower as the yield increases
- Modified duration is the percentage change in price for a nominal change in yield

Limitations of Macaulay and Modified Duration Different Terms

- Percentage change estimates using modified duration only are good for small-yield changes
- Difficult to determine the interest-rate sensitivity of a portfolio of bonds when there is a change in interest rates and the yield curve experiences a nonparallel shift
- Initial assumption that cash flows from the bond are not affected by yield changes

Effective Duration Different Terms

- Measure of the interest rate sensitivity of an asset
- Use a pricing model to estimate the market prices surrounding a change in interest rates
Effective Duration

P- = the estimated price after a downward shift in interest rates

P+ = the estimated price after a upward shift in interest rates

P = the current price

S = the assumed shift in the term structure

Effective Duration Different Terms

- Effective duration greater than maturity
- Negative effective duration
- Empirical duration
