3Valuing Bonds [LO2] Even though most corporate bonds in the United States make coupon payments semiannually, bonds issued elsewhere often have annual coupon payments. Suppose a German company issues a bond with a par value of €1,000, 23 years to maturity, and a coupon rate of 5.8 percent paid annually. If the yield to maturity is 4.7 percent, what is the current price of the bond?

6 Bond Prices LO2> Sqeekers Co. issued 15-year bonds a year ago at a coupon rate of 4.1 percent. The bonds make semiannual payments and have a par value of \$1,000. If the YTM on these bonds is 4.5 percent, what is the current bond price?

10Valuing Bonds [LO2] Yan Yan Corp. has a \$2,000 par value bond outstanding with a coupon rate of 4.9 percent paid semiannually and 13 years to maturity. The yield to maturity of the bond is 3.8 percent. What is the price of the bond?

19.Interest Rate Risk [LO2] Both Bond Sam and Bond Dave have 6.5 percent coupons, make semiannual payments, and are priced at par value. Bond Sam has 3 years to maturity, whereas Bond Dave has 20 years to maturity. If interest rates suddenly rise by 2 percent, what is the percentage change in the price of Bond Sam? Of Bond Dave? If rates were to suddenly fall by 2 percent instead, what would the percentage change in the price of Bond Sam be then? Of Bond Dave? Illustrate your answers by graphing bond prices versus YTM. What does this problem tell you about the interest rate risk of longer-term bonds?

20. Interest Rate Risk [LO2] Bond J has a coupon rate of 3 percent. Bond K has a coupon rate of 9 percent. Both bonds have 19 years to maturity, make semiannual payments, and have a YTM of 6 percent. If interest rates suddenly rise by 2 percent, what is the percentage price change of these bonds? What if rates suddenly fall by 2 percent instead? What does this problem tell you about the interest rate risk of lower-coupon bonds?

12.Calculating Real Rates of Return [LO4] If Treasury bills are currently paying 5.1 percent and the inflation rate is 2.2 percent, what is the approximate real rate of interest? The exact real rate?

21.Bond Yields [LO2] Bourdon Software has 6.4 percent coupon bonds on the market with 18 years to maturity. The bonds make semiannual payments and currently sell for 106.8 percent of par. What is the current yield on the bonds? The YTM? The effective annual yield?
