2.
A bond with \$1,000 face value, 10% coupon, market interest rates of %5, and three years to
maturity.
a. Calculate the duration of the bond
b. Assume that market interest rates increased to 7%, re-calculate the duration of the bond
c. Assume that the market interest rates decreased to 3%, re-calculate the duration of the bond
d. Comment generally on the relationships between the interest rates, coupons, and duration
3.
A \$1000 face value bond has a 10% coupon rate, its current price is \$990, and its price is expected
to increase to \$1,050 next year. Calculate the return of the bond.
4. Assume that you are holding two bonds. A 30 year zero coupon bond, and 30 year coupon bond
with 2% coupon. You are not planning to hold the bonds till maturity. If you expect the interest
rates to decrease sharply, which bond would you rather get rid-off (sell)? explain
5. Reade this case carefully. “You relative asks you to lend him money and promised to pay you 8%
per year. You know that the bank offers 5% return on a saving account. You declined to lend your
relative, and, instead, you deposited you money in the bank to earn 5%. Your relative ended up
taking a loan from the bank at 12%”. Based on what we covered in class, comment generally on this
case.
