Bond Valuation
A coupon rate (INT) greater than the required A coupon rate (INT) greater than the required rate of return (rrr) and rate of return (rrr) and the fair present value of the bond (Vbb) is the fair present value of the bond (V ) is greater than the face value (M) greater than the face value (M)

Discount bond: if INT < rrr, then Vbb< M Discount bond: if INT < rrr, then V < M Par bond: if INT = rrr, then Vbb= M Par bond: if INT = rrr, then V = M

Required Rate of Return
The fair present value (PV) of a security is The fair present value (PV) of a security is determined using the required rate of return (rrr) as determined using the required rate of return (rrr) as the discount rate the discount rate
