Calculation Of Current Value Of Bond

Question

Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7% and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1000 and the bond pays interest annually.

a. Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.
b. Now, suppose, Twin Oaks’ four year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its current value? (Assume a 7% semiannual required rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7% because semiannual coupon bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon bond).
c. Assume that Twin Oaks’ bond had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Again, assume a 7% semiannual required rate of return, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7% because of increased price risk).

Summary

The question belongs to Finance and it discusses about calculating the current value of a bond with annual coupon payments, the same bond had semiannual coupon payments, etc. These calculations have been given in the solution in detail.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
