A1. (Bond valuation) A \$1,000 face value bond has a remaining maturity of 10 years and a required return of 9%. The bond’s coupon rate is 7.4%. What is the fair value of this bond? Calculating PV factor:

i= required return = 9% = 0.09
n= 10 years
Using Cash Flow of \$1000 to calculate present value,
Cash flow= \$1000
PV factor = 1/(1+i)^n = 0.42241
PV = \$1000*0.42241= 422.41
Using Coupon Rate to calculate present value of Annuity
Cash flow= \$1000 * 7.4/100 = \$74
PV factor = (1/i)*(1- 1/(1+i)^n) = 6.4176
So, PV = \$74*6.4176 = 474.90|
So the fair value of bond = 474.90+422.41 = \$897.31
A10. (Dividend discount model) Assume RHM is expected to pay a total cash dividend of \$5.60 next year and its dividends are expected to grow at a rate of 6% per year forever. Assuming annual dividend payments, what is the current market value of a share of RHM stock if the required return on RHM common stock is 10%? Current market value = D1/(Required return – growth rate)

= 5.60/(10%-6%) = \$140

A12. (Required return for a preferred stock) James River \$3.38 preferred is selling for \$45.25. The preferred dividends is now growing. What is the required return on James River preferred stock? Required Return = Dividend/Market Price

Dividend = \$3.38
Market Price = \$45.25
Required Return = \$3.38 / \$45.25
Required Return = 7.47%
A14.(Stock Valuation) Suppose Toyota has nonmaturing (perpetual) preferred stock outstanding that pays a \$1.00 quarterly dividend and has a required return of 12% APR (3% per quarterly). What is the stock worth? Perpetual Quarterly Preferred Dividend (D) = \$1.00

Annual Dividend (\$1.00 x 4.00) = \$4.00
Annual Percentage Rate (APR) = 12%
Preferred Stock Value (P0) = (D / R)
Preferred Stock Value (P0) = (\$4.00 / 0.12)
Preferred Stock Value (P0) = \$33.33

B16 Interest-rate risk) Philadelphia Electric has many bonds trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Suppose PhilEl’s bonds have identical coupon rates of 9.125% but that one issue matures in 1 year, one in 7 years, and the third in 15 years. Assume that a coupon payment was made yesterday. If the yield to maturity for all three bonds is 8%, what is the fair price of each bond? 1 Year Maturity

n = 1 x 2 = 2
r = 8% / 2 = 4%
PV = ?
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.62
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,010.61
7 Year Maturity
n = 7 x 2 = 14
r = 8% / 2 = 4%
PV = ?
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,059.42
15 Year Maturity
n = 15 x 2 = 30
r = 8% / 2 = 4%
PV = ?
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = -\$1,097.27
Suppose that the yield to maturity for all of these bonds changed instantaneously to 7%. What is the fair price of each bond now? 1Year Maturity
n = 1 x 2 = 2
r = 7% / 2 = 3.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,020.18
7 Year Maturity
n = 7 x 2 = 14
r = 7% / 2 = 3.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,116.03
15 Year Maturity
n = 15 x 2 = 30
r = 7% / 2 = 3.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,195.42
Suppose that the yield to maturity for all of these bonds changed instantaneously again, this time to 9%. Now what is the fair price of each bond? 1 Year Maturity
n = 1 x 2 = 2
r = 9% / 2 = 4.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,001.17
7 Year Maturity
n = 7 x 2 = 14
r = 9% / 2 = 4.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,006.39
15 Year Maturity
n = 15 x 2 = 30
r = 9% / 2 = 4.5%
PV = n/a
PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = \$45.625
FV = \$1,000
PV = \$1,010.18
B18. (Default risk) You buy a very risky bond that promises a 9.5% coupon and return of the \$1,000 principal in 10 years. You pay only \$500 for the bond. You receive the coupon payments...
