Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

George, Inc. bonds have a face value of $1,000 and a 9% coupon paid semiannually; the bonds mature in 8 days. What current yield would be reported in The Wall Street Journal if the yield to maturity is 7%.

Semiannual payments= 9%*1000/2 = 45

Price = 45/(1+7%/2) + 45/(1+7%/2)^2 + 45/(1+7%/2)^3 + 45/(1+7%/2)^4 �.. = 45/(1+7%/2)^16

Price =$1,120.94

current yield = 9%*1000/ 1,120.94= 8.03%
