1. Six years ago, The Corzine Company sold a 20-year bond issue with a 14 percent annual coupon rate and a 9 percent call premium. Today, Corzine called the bonds. The bonds originally were sold at their face value of $1,000. Compute the realized rate of return for investors who purchased the bonds when they were issued and who surrender them today in exchange for the call price.

2. You just purchased a bond which matures in 5 years. The bond has a face value of $1,000, and has an 8 percent annual coupon. The bond has a current yield of 8.21 percent. What is the bond’s yield to maturity?

3. The Dass Company’s bonds have 4 years remaining to maturity. Interest is paid annually; the bonds have a $1,000 par value; and the coupon interest rate is 9 percent. What is the yield to maturity at a current market price of $829? Would you pay $829 for one of these bonds if you thought that the appropriate rate of return was 12 percent?

PV = 829; N = 4; FV = 1000; PMT =90; CPT I/Y
I/Y = 14.99%
YES, IF YOU THOUGHT THE APPROPRIATE RATE WAS 12%, YOUR PV WOULD ACTUALLY BE HIGHER MEANING YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY MORE THAN $829.
