# Interest Rates and Bond Valuation

T1 Bond Features

##  Bond - evidence of debt issued by a corporation or a

governmental body. A bond represents a loan made by investors to the issuer. In return for his/her money, the investor receives a legaI claim on future cash flows of the borrower. The issuer promises to:

## bond matures, and matures.

 Pay the face/par/maturity value of the bond when it  Default - since the abovementioned promises are

contractual obligations, an issuer who fails to keep them is subject to legal action on behalf of the lenders (bondholders).

##  If a bond has five years to maturity, an \$80 annual coupon,

and a \$1000 face value, its cash flows would look like this: Time Coupons Face Value 0 1 \$80 2 \$80 3 \$80 4 \$80 5 \$80

\$ 1000 \$______

##  How much is this bond worth? It depends on the level of

current market interest rates. If the going rate on bonds like this one is 10%, then this bond is worth \$924.18. Why? Stay tuned.

##  Suppose a bond currently sells for \$932.90. It pays an

annual coupon of \$70, and it matures in 10 years. It has a face value of \$1000. What are its coupon rate, current yield, and yield to maturity (YTM)?


1. The coupon rate (or just coupon) is the annual dollar coupon expressed as a percentage of the face value: Coupon rate = \$70 /\$_____ = ___%

2. The current yield is the annual coupon divided by the current market price of the bond: Current yield = \$___ /_____ = 7.5%

Under what conditions will the coupon rate and current yield be the same? Stay tuned.

## T4 Bond Rates and Yields (concluded)

 3.

The yield to maturity (or YTM) is the rate that makes the price of the bond just equal to the present value of its future cash flows. It is the unknown r in: \$932.90 = \$_______ [1 - 1/(1 + r)10]/r + \$_______ /(1 + r)10

The only way to find the YTM is trial and error: a. Try 10%: \$70 b. Try 9%: \$70 c. Try 8%: \$70 [(1 - 1/(1.10)10]/.10 + \$1000/(1.10)10 = \$816 [1 - 1/(1.09)10]/.09 + \$1000/(1.09)10 = \$872 [1 - 1/(1.08)10]/.08 + \$1000/(1.08)10 = \$933

## ( ) The yield to maturity is 8%

T5 Valuing a Bond

##  Assume you have the following information.

Barnhart, Inc. bonds have a \$1,000 face value The promised annual coupon is \$100 The bonds mature in 20 years The markets required return on similar bonds is 10%

1. Calculate the present value of the face value = \$1,000 [1/1.1020 ] = \$1,000 .14864 = \$148.64

2. Calculate the present value of the coupon payments = \$100 [1 - (1/1.1020)]/.10 = \$100 8.5136 = \$851.36

##  Assume you have the following information.

Barnhart, Inc. bonds have a \$1,000 face value The promised annual coupon is \$100 The bonds mature in 20 years The markets required return on similar bonds is 12%

1. Calculate the present value of the face value = \$1,000 [1/1.1220 ] = \$1,000 .10366 = \$103.66

2. Calculate the present value of the coupon payments = \$100 [1 - (1/1.1020)]/.10 = \$100 7.4694 = \$746.94

##  Assume you have the following information.

Barnhart, Inc. bonds have a \$1,000 face value The promised annual coupon is \$100 The bonds mature in 20 years The markets required return on similar bonds is 8%


1. Calculate the present value of the face value = \$1,000 [1/1.0820 ] = \$1,000 .21455 = \$214.55

2. Calculate the present value of the coupon payments = \$100 [1 - (1/1.0820)]/.08 = \$100 9.8181 = \$981.81

## 3. The value of each bond = \$214.55 + 981.81 = \$1,196.36

##  The following statements about bond pricing are always true.



1. Bond prices and market interest rates move in opposite directions. 2. When a bonds coupon rate is (greater than / equal to / less than) the markets required return, the bonds market value will be (greater than / equal to / less than) its par value. 3. Given two bonds identical but for maturity, the price of the longer-term bond will change more than that of the shorter-term bond, for a given change in market interest rates. 4. Given two bonds identical but for coupon, the price of the lower-coupon bond will change more than that of the higher-coupon bond, for a given change in market interest rates.

## T14 Inflation and Returns

 Key issues:


What is the difference between a real and a nominal return? How can we convert from one to the other?

 Example:

Suppose we have \$1,000, and Diet Coke costs \$2.00 per six pack. We can buy 500 six packs. Now suppose the rate of inflation is 5%, so that the price rises to \$2.10 in one year. We invest the \$1,000 and it grows to \$1,100 in one year. Whats our return in dollars? In six packs?

##  A. Dollars. Our return is

(\$1100 - \$1000)/\$1000 = \$100/\$1000 = ________. ( ) The percentage increase in the amount of green stuff is 10%; our return is 10%.
 B. Six packs. We can buy \$1100/\$2.10 = ________

six packs, so our return is (523.81 - 500)/500 = 23.81/500 = 4.76% ( ) The percentage increase in the amount of brown stuff is 4.76%; our return is 4.76%.

##  Real versus nominal returns:

Your nominal return is the percentage change in the amount of money you have. Your real return is the percentage change in the amount of stuff you can actually buy.

##  The relationship between real and nominal returns is described by

the Fisher Effect. Let: R r h = = = the nominal return the real return the inflation rate

##  According to the Fisher Effect:

1 + R = (1 + r) x (1 + h)
 From the example, the real return is 4.76%; the nominal return is

10%, and the inflation rate is 5%: (1 + R) = 1.10 (1 + r) x (1 + h) = 1.0476 x 1.05 = 1.10

##  Reznik Corporation has bonds on the market with 10.5

years to maturity, a yield-to-maturity of 10 percent, and a current price of \$860. Coupon payments are semiannual. What must the coupon rate be on the bonds? Total number of coupon payments = 10.5 Yield-to-maturity per period Maturity value = F 2 = 21

= 10% / 2 = 5% = \$1,000

##  Substituting the known values into the bond pricing

equation: Bond Value \$860 \$860 C = C = C = C [1 - 1/(1 + r)t] / r + F / (1 + r)t [1 - 1/(1 + .05)21] / .05 + \$1,000/(1.05)21 12.8211 + \$358.94

= \$39.08 2 = \$78.16

##  Bond J has a 4% coupon and Bond K a 10% coupon. Both

have 10 years to maturity, make semiannual payments, and have 9% YTMs. If market rates rise by 2%, what is the percentage price change of these bonds? If rates fall by 2%? What does this say about the risk of lower-coupon bonds? Current Prices: Bond J: PV = \$20 [1 - 1/(1.045)20]/.045 + \$1,000/(1.045)20 = \$______ Bond K: PV = \$50 [1 - 1/(1.045)20]/.045 + \$1,000/(1.045)20 = \$1065.04

## T21 Solution to Problem (continued)

Prices if market rates rise by 2%: Bond J: PV = \$20 [1 - 1/(1.055)20]/.055 + \$1,000/(1.055)20 = \$581.74 Bond K: PV = \$50 [1 - 1/(1.055)20]/.055 + \$1,000/(1.055)20 = \$______

## T22 Solution to Problem (continued)

Prices if market rates fall by 2%: Bond J: PV = = \$20 [1 - 1/(1.035)20]/.035 + \$1,000/(1.035)20 \$786.82

##  Percentage Changes in Bond Prices

Bond Prices and Market Rates 7% 9% 11% _________________________________ Bond J % chg. Bond K % chg. \$786.81 (+16.60%) \$674.80 \$581.74 (___%)

## \$1,213.19 \$1,065.04 \$940.25 (___%) (-11.72%) _________________________________

The results above demonstrate that, all else equal, the price of the lower-coupon bond changes more (in percentage terms) than the price of the higher-coupon bond when market rates change.
