· Assume Mr. Davis can buy either a $10,000 corporate bond yielding 10% or a municipal bond yielding 7%. Assume risk is constant. Assume also that his Federal tax rate will be 28% and his State tax rate 7% and that the municipal bond is exempt from both types of income taxes.

Which should he buy, if the yield and tax consequences are the only variables?

· A bond has the following terms:

Principal amount | $1,000 |

Semi-annual interest | $50 |

Maturity | 10 years |

(When asked for a % yield, round yields to nearest tenth of a percent, such as 10.1 %.)

- What is the bond's price if comparable debt yields 12%?
- What would be the price if comparable debt yields 12% and the bond matures after 5 years?
- What are the current yields and yields to maturity if a. and b.?
- What would be the bond's price in a. if interest rates declined to 8%? What if the bond matures after 5 years?
- What are the current yields and yields to maturity in d.?
- What two generalizations may be drawn from the above price changes?

· You purchase a high-yield, junk bond for $1,000 that pays $140 annually. After buying the bond, yields decline and you are able to reinvest the interest at only 9 percent. You reinvest all the interest payments.

How much will you have when the bond is retired after 12 years? What was the annual return you earned on this investment?

· Determine the current market prices of the following $1,000 bonds if the comparable rate is 10% and answer the questions.

- XY 5 ¼ percent, with interest paid annually for 20 years.
- AB 14 percent, with interest paid annually for 20 years.

- Which bond has a current yield that exceeds the yield to maturity?
- Which bond may you expect to be called? Why?
