What is the yield to call of a 20-year to maturity bond that pays a coupon rate of 9.03 percent per year, has a \$1,000 par value, and is currently priced at \$791? The bond can be called back in 8 years at a call price \$1,078. Assume annual coupon payments.

Round the answer to two decimal places in percentage form. (Write the percentage sign in the "units" box)

You should use Excel or financial calculator.

 7.99 (14.14) %

I used the Rate formula on excel, but I can't seem to get the right numbers

How did you calculate the call premium (7.80%)?

Sep 9th, 2015

The call premium is the percent increase over the bond's face value which is paid by the issuing company to exercise their call option.

Call Premium = [(1078 - 1000)/1000]*1000

Call Premium = 0.078 or 7.8%

*Call Premium = [(1078 - 1000)/1000]*100
