1.4 Valuing a perpetuity

 A perpetuity is a security that pays constant amount of cash, at constant intervals, forever.
 Not loan as principal is not returned
 100 invested at 4% perpetual interest, we get 4 every year, forever.

 No arbitrage condition
 Law of one price
 Cash flow = principal * rate (C=P*r)

1.5 Annuity
 Annuity is constant cash flow occurring at regular intervals of time for fixed period of time
 Loans, EMIs, etc
 Future value of annuity(FVA)
 Formula for PV of annuity

(C/r) – (C/r)*[1/(1+r)^N]

Bonds and stocks

 Bond is a security issued by firm to raise funds

 Issuer and investor
 Bonds are on liability side on balance sheet
 Bonds are tradeable, loans are not
 Maturity date: last payment date
 Interest rate payment of bond is called coupon
 (Coupon rate=APR) expressed as a percentage of facevalue
 Coupon rate = annual coupon / facevalue = (coupon*#ofcouponsperyear)/facevalue
