$20                   $20                  $20                   20+$1000




a. What is the maturity of the bond (in years)?


b. What is the coupon rate (in percent)?


c. What is the face value?


4. Suppose the current zero-coupon yield curve for risk-free bonds is as follows:


Maturity (years) 1                     2                     3                      4                      5


YTM                             5.00%              5.50%              5.75%               5.95%               6.05%


a. What is the price per $100 face value of a two-year, zero-coupon, risk-free bond?


b. What is the price per $100 face value of a four-year, zero-coupon, risk-free bond?


c. What is the risk-free interest rate for a five-year maturity?


6. Suppose a 10-year, $1000 bond with an 8% coupon rate and semiannual coupons is trading for


a price of $1034.74.


a. What is the bond’s yield to maturity (expressed as an APR with semiannual compounding)?


b. If the bond’s yield to maturity changes to 9% APR, what will the bond’s price be?


7. Suppose a five-year, $1000 bond with annual coupons has a price of $900 and a yield to maturity


of 6%. What is the bond’s coupon rate?


11. Suppose that General Motors Acceptance Corporation issued a bond with 10 years until maturity,


a face value of $1000, and a coupon rate of 7% (annual payments). The yield to maturity


on this bond when it was issued was 6%.


a. What was the price of this bond when it was issued?


b. Assuming the yield to maturity remains constant, what is the price of the bond immediately


before it makes its first coupon payment?


c. Assuming the yield to maturity remains constant, what is the price of the bond immediately


after it makes its first coupon payment?


13. Consider the following bonds:


Bond                Coupon Rate (annual payments)          Maturity (years)


A                                  0%                                                       15


B                                  0%                                                       10


C                                  4%                                                       15


D                                  8%                                                       10


a. What is the percentage change in the price of each bond if its yield to maturity falls from 6%


to 5%?


b. Which of the bonds A–D is most sensitive to a 1% drop in interest rates from 6% to 5% and


why? Which bond is least sensitive? Provide an intuitive explanation for your answer.

3. Suppose Acap Corporation will pay a dividend of $2.80 per share at the end of this year and $3


per share next year. You expect Acap’s stock price to be $52 in two years. If Acap’s equity cost of


capital is 10%:


a. What price would you be willing to pay for a share of Acap stock today, if you planned to


hold the stock for two years?


b. Suppose instead you plan to hold the stock for one year. What price would you expect to be


able to sell a share of Acap stock for in one year?


c. Given your answer in part (b), what price would you be willing to pay for a share of Acap


stock today, if you planned to hold the stock for one year? How does this compare to your


answer in part (a)?


5. NoGrowth Corporation currently pays a dividend of $2 per year, and it will continue to pay


this dividend forever. What is the price per share if its equity cost of capital is 15% per year?


6. Summit Systems will pay a dividend of $1.50 this year. If you expect Summit’s dividend to grow


by 6% per year, what is its price per share if its equity cost of capital is 11%?


12. Procter & Gamble will pay an annual dividend of $0.65 one year from now. Analysts expect


this dividend to grow at 12% per year thereafter until the fifth year. After then, growth will level

Procter & Gamble stock if the firm’s equity cost of capital is 8%?


17. Maynard Steel plans to pay a dividend of $3 this year. The company has an expected earnings


growth rate of 4% per year and an equity cost of capital of 10%.


a. Assuming Maynard’s dividend payout rate and expected growth rate remains constant, and


Maynard does not issue or repurchase shares, estimate Maynard’s share price.


b. Suppose Maynard decides to pay a dividend of $1 this year and use the remaining $2


per share to repurchase shares. If Maynard’s total payout rate remains constant, estimate


Maynard’s share price.


c. If Maynard maintains the dividend and total payout rate given in part (b), at what rate are


Maynard’s dividends and earnings per share expected to grow?
