An investor is considering buying a 20-year corporate
bond. The bond has a face value of $1,000 and pays 6%
interest per year in two semiannual payments. To receive
8% interest, compounded semiannually, how much should
be paid for the bond?
Solution
Hi,
Please find the correct answers as follows:
Price of the bond = 30*(1-(1+8%/2)^(-
40))/(8%/2)+1000/(1+8%/2)^(40)
=$802.07
Hence, the price that should be paid is $802.07
