Yield to Maturity on the Bond Assignment | Homework For You

Congratulations, you have been hired as an analyst at the Procter and Gamble Co. (PG).  Your first assignment is to estimate the appropriate rate that a new 30-year bond would need in order to be issued competitively to the public.  It is April 1, 2020 (ignore actual current market rates).  PG just made a coupon payment (semi-annual) on its “8% 2045” bonds that mature on April 1, 2045. The bonds currently sell for 104 with a par value of 100.  Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) has a 5% 2045 bond issue with a YTM of 6.0%. The PG and KMB bonds are identical in every way, including the Moody’s and S&P ratings, maturity date, and the fact that the respective companies can call them at any time. (The bonds were issued on different dates, thus their coupon rates and current market prices are different.)
